Knocked this out in an afternoon using some scrap wood. I do have a cover that I use. I'm a big fan of the Master cable lock to keep things from getting legs.

eu3000i on tongue

see this thread for my mod mounting a honda 3000 elect start model on the tongue of my 85. I have since sold said 85 and purchased a 95 and have made the same mod to it. http://www.airforums.com/forums/f448...tor-54172.html Again, if you are specifically interested, email for more info. bill Oh, I tow with a one ton Ford van-have had no troubles with any kind of flex. for the record (in case you don't look up the thread) I removed the spare tire and carrier from under the A/S as well as the tongue mounted "tool" box and replaced it with an 11 gallon fuel cell for extra fuel capacity. AS of today, using a set of Longacre Racing scale pads I have (added on edit-dang if I know where the rest of my note went?) less than 700 lbs on the tongue. More on this later.

Looks like it would be hard to reach the pull/start cord!

Hi, I think Denis4x4 uses this for carrying purposes only, but we'll let him tell us. Looks like the mount has to be removed to open the battery box door? I think, I will make something similar to your bracket for a portable wheeled dolly for my Yamaha.

Correct, it's designed to carry the Honda. Note the bevel on the wood so that the battery door can be fully opened.

That is similar to what I did. But I used aluminum stock and extended it so the weight is supported by the sides of the battery box and not just the cover. I can open the battery box about half way but need to remove the lp tank cover to open it fully. I tie it all down with nylon straps that wrap through the gen handle and around the battery box. A bike lock adds some security.

Is your Gen a 1000 or do you just have more space between the tanks and A/S?

Sorry, I've been out 'streaming. It's a 1,000. I have a 2,000, but I think the fit is too tight. It fit, but I'd be banging up the AS taking it in and out.

I have a Yamaha 2000i that fits the same space on a 2010 23FB. It adds weight to the tongue, but I don't know where else to put the thing. In the SUV it's mostly OK, but does fume a bit when it gets hot or climbing altitude.

Is the Yamaha 2 kW narrower than the Honda 2 kW?
