Thanks.

did some amp draw testing...

30A Radio Scrap ammeter, and a modified extension cord...

1000W Halogen shop lights: 6.0A @ 2750 RPM

4GAL 'RIGID' shop vac: 11.0A @ 2780 RPM

2HP/4GAL Campbell Hausfeld air compressor: 30+A @ 4380 RPM.. wouldn't start it

plugged into Edison, it spikes the ammeter well past 30A, then drops to 14A draw while spooling

Is there any way to run this off my 2400?
btw- I started another thread titled 'hard-start kit?'

I need to get an 'L' bracket, and secure it... having that long hose extension creates a lot of stress on just those two mounting points...

I bumped this thread just to make a note and ask about exhaust:

When I run on propane, the exhaust smells pretty strongly of sulphur - how about your guys?

Also, my unit will not run my 15k ac. Other than that, I'm looking forward to dry-camping in Algonquin Park and other places beginning next week.

My small genset (Yam 2400 from US Carb) runs fine on all three fuels, and does not have as much "exhaust smell" on natural gas or propane as on gasoline. In any event, it still has some CO output that you can't smell, so as they say in real estate, location, location, location.

Mine runs my ac o.k. ... a few weeks ago, I ran it all afternoon in 97 degree heat / full sun on the coach, and it worked fine, but my ac is 11.5k or 13k, I don't know which. I will note that in that temp, the ac compressor ran more or less full time, but the interior kept at 72 degrees on "medium cool" setting and not "turned down" all the way on the temp dial. The heat from the genset air cooling output did kill all the grass where it sat on the ground ... YMMV.

I notice normal smell on gasoline, haven't noticed any on LP.

I've bought both the completed modified Honda EU2000i generators and the conversion kits from Central Main Diesel (GeneratorSales.com) and haven't had any problems with the generators or working with the people there.

My only experience is with converting the Honda EU2000i but it turned out to be a fairly simple procedure from what I initially thought it would be and because so, I've modified almost a dozen EU2000's myself for other individuals using CMD's kits and they've all worked great. I've not had any complaints from anyone who has gone through the conversion process or with the parts of the kit.

The hardest issue I've had to deal with is adjusting the valve that regulates the propane flow from the regulator into the carb to the altitude where I live. There's a small range where the turn of the valve can either let to much propane in or not enough causing the generator to start or not.
