Honeywell Inverter Generator

Does anyone have any experience with or knowledge of the Honeywell HW2000i Portable Inverter Generator? These are available for about $500.00 and appear to be of similar specs as the Honda or Yamahas at a much more reasonable price. I have been unable to determine if two of these generators can be run in tandem to run an RV air conditioner.

I found this:
Sounded intresting, went looking for more information. Could not find a lot of real information on this unit; site gives a lot of fluff, but no real specs. Unit has low oil protection, but don't know if it has smart throttle, lists output at 120 and 12 , but lists AMPS 8.3 at 240 Volts. The Honeywell HW2000i is rated 62 db at no load (found that on annother site, not Honeywell), that's significantly louder than the Honda and Yamaha units (Honda 53 no load 59 rated load).

Found it here

I have seen the unit and would not go down that road. It is a load, B&S powered non green low priced generator! It does not meet the new National Park req. In my opinion the very best unit is what Yamaha offers!

I'm also interested in opinions on Honeywell especially if someone here has actually owned/used one. Costco has the 1000 watt for $339.00 delivered.

The Honeywell 1000 generator has a no-load noise level of 60 dB, which is the maximum permitted by National Park Service regulations, so I guess it would be okay in the Parks if you didn't use any juice.
