I have the new Yamaha EF2400iSHC ran the 13,500 BTU AC this past summer 100+ deg. No problems at all. Gas consumption not bad at all full tank lasted a good 6 hrs. Another good point very quit.

I tried to get that dual plug adapter but it was taken off the market because it blew circuits on homes etc that people were trying to use it on. The dealer told me to use a single plug adapter and it would be fine. The red overload light will warn you if there is a problem. Also some dealers include the advanced gauge with it. If you order the tri fuel model it takes time to get but a dealer does the mod and it is covered under warranty

Robert I like the adapter you have. I have not seen one like this, where did you purchase the adapter? It looks like it connects to both ports of duplex receptacle. I have plugged in with a inline adapter and it got hot and melted extension cord the adapter you have looks much more robust.
You may have swayed me back towards the Yamaha.
Yes you are correct I did mean 2000.

Hi, Note: The orange 30 Amp adapter is only for use with duplex recepticals that are wired on the same circuit. Recepticals that have separate circuits in houses and in commercial/contractor's type generators won't work.

Simply put, If the duplex has three wires connected to it, one BLACK, one WHITE, and one GREEN it will work. If the duplex has two BLACK, two WHITE, and one GREEN, it won't work.

I have the older EF2400is and have used it on both a 20 year old SOB with a 13,500 BTU A/C and now use it on my 2005 Classic with a 15,000 BTU A/C. I have never had any problems using it with the A/C and have used it several times for a few hours.

Correct. I hunted for sources on the Internet and found it but when I contacted the company I was told that it was removed from the market as a hazard DUE TO people not using it correctly and plugging in to household plugs, etc. The problem with the adapter is that people assume that because there are two outlets they will have double amperage. In home wiring that is not done UNLESS the plug itself is split into two circuits and on the same phase. Most likely that is what most buyers were trying to do with the adapter. The Yamaha only puts out a single phase 120 volt that is divided into two 15 amp (OR SO) outlets. For the dual 30 amp adapter to work that jumps or connects, At any rate, I contacted the place I bought the generator from and spoke to them about the 30amp and of course heard the part about the amp rating but was told to use a single adapter for the plug and it would be fine as long as I did not continuously draw more and bog the generator down. So far I have not. I was able to run a fantastic fan on full power, run my 11K AC, and use the microwave on a 45 second burst all at once. The red light slowly glowed red toward the end of my test but it proved that I was not taxing the generator with just air. I am not sure how much more "continuous" load the 13K AC has but around 50% of generator is ok for long runs. I refer to the 24isHC. The last part (HC) refers to the booster/capacitor technology that works for motors, etc, getting over that initial startup draw.

another thought on the adaptation plug:

The point is that no matter how you use the plugs, you will get 10 amps out of each plug or 20 amps out of both combined but they do not have to be tied together. I thought so and looked for the adapter but either way, the generator will be capable of 20 amps out of both OR EITHER plug. The adapter just adapts the trailer plug to the 20 amp plug - not allowing more draw.

Hi, at one time, I considered replacing the duplex plate on my generator with a new one [so I could return it back to stock if I ever wanted to] and to remove the duplex outlet, and replace it with a single RV 30 Amp receptacle. Then use an adapter if I wanted to use a 20 Amp plug for things other than my trailer. Obviously, not to get 30 Amps, but just a better RV power cord connection.

Yeah adapters can be a nuisance. At any rate, the 2400isHC is an excellent choice however one decides to plug it!
