we bought one from Home Depot in August 2009 (on sale, $299!!).
used it one weekend in Saratoga Springs, NY.
it was not strong enough to consistently start the Dometic 11KBtu AC on our rig without stalling half the time.
with one weekend of use on it, we sold it on CL to a fellow 3000 miles away who was willing to pay for the shipping!
obtw, no matter what all the printed Honeywell literature says, the Honeywell weighs 70 pounds dry, not 58, or whatever it says in the manual.
we deliberated some more over Honda vs. Yamaha, and size.
we replaced the Honeywell with a 2009 Yamaha EF2400is.
we like it a lot.
no sweat (pardon the pun) running the AC.
our neighbors really
liked it when the power on their end of the block was out for 5 days, and then 3 more days in the winter and spring storms we had.
enough power to keep the furnace warm, the refrigerator cold, and a modest number of lights. they said it ran all day on one tank of gas.....
I'm told that the newer (2010) model is even nicer....
if I had to choose again, I'd still pick the Yamaha EF2400is over two Honda EU2000i strapped together.
