A couple of weeks ago we purchased an ARE cap for our 2011 GMC 2500 4x4 tv, it looks like it came with it. I'll try to take a pic the next time I have it out and post it here.

We're thinking about getting a Honda generator eu2000i (I think those numbers are correct), and we know eventually we want to have two so one needs to be the companion. We just need to research which one we should buy first; which one can run by itself.

Hi Deb
It will be interesting what you come up with here as we need to purchase a generator also and have been looking at the Honda. But the price of them (at least in Canada) is just nuts!
Looking forward to following along on what you decide....
Cheers
Doug

Ask your dealer to be sure, but I think either can run solo. If that's true, the companion is probably the most convenient to get first so you don't have to use the adapter, even though you can only draw what it is capable of producing when running solo.

Hi, I don't know what you're planning on running but, before you spend over 2 grand on 2 generators, consider the Yamaha 2400. Yes it's heavier but, not that much at around 70 lbs. It's super quiet, not much bigger than a 2000 and can start and run a 13500btu a/c. I love mine!

Okay, I' not smart enough for my smart phone, which seems to not be letting some of my photo posts through. Am I missing a step in the process?

I can't see the posts on the iPad, but can see them on the iPhone and the regular website. So perhaps the app on the iPad is the problem...

FYI - I have both companion and standard Honda 2000 generators. They both work well, and independently of each other. An adapter is still required as the Furion cord will not plug directly into the companion 30A outlet. The adapter is about $30 available at Camping World.

We did just purchase a new Weber Q2000 Grill this weekend. I haven't used it yet, but it will get plenty of action this summer:

We also bought one of these from Costco, on sale for $89.95:



We liked it so much after the first week that we bought three more as gifts! I thought it was a foolish idea at first, but we know use it when camping, on the back patio, in the driveway, etc...

Hi Hibby:

This is a good looking grill and one I have been looking at also. Have you cooked on it at all? I'm asking because I have read were some say it will not put out enough heat. That said, I'm not sure what "not enough heat" means in real world cooking. In my world I just need it to put out enough heat that one can cook a good steak on it and for that not to take for ever.

With luck you or (anyone else) will have a bit of real world input into this

Thanks

Doug

Doug (Articfox) -- We ended up going with the eu2000i-c, the companion model and will purchase another regular one later.

Hibby -- Thanks for the info on the adapter, we didn't realize that we needed that, and will have to get one of those ordered too.

Markj55 -- Yamaha was one we researched in the beginning, but we decided not to go with it -- DH says the weight difference is 47 lbs vs 70 lbs, and decided that as we age, the lighter weight will be good, so we decided to go with the lighter Honda 2000.

We had been kicking around getting a bed slide to make removal from the bed easier without having to crawl into the bed with the cap on, but couldn't wrap our minds around having to remove that too (and having holes in the truck bed where the bolts would have been) when we remove the truck cap for the winter. I know some people leave their caps on all year 'round, but we do a lot with our truck, and think it would make life easier at times not having it on.

My Furrion 30 amp 50' power cord will plug directly into the Honda 2000 generator 30 amp power socket with no adapter. It attaches directly to the 30amp service entrance on a trailer with that service.

F30C50-SS - Power Cordsets - Marine Shore Power - Electrical

They also make a 25' model with the same capability:

F30C25-SS - Power Cordsets - Marine Shore Power - Electrical

These cords will also serve as extension cords for the usual power cord by connecting to the trailer and the usual cord attaches directly to the Furrion. They also offer water tight connections between their cords that will keep the cords from accidentally pulling apart.

There is a Furrion pigtail adapter that will plug into the 50 amp service entrance on our trailer and provide the twist lock connection to our 50' Furrion 30 amp cord mentioned above.

FP5030-SY

The 120Vac voltage drop is negligible on either a 25' or 50' cord #10 wire cord.

LED replacement strips for the non-functioning fluorescents that live behind our cornices (1985 Excella). I haven't seen them yet, but Hubby installed them today and he says they are beautiful!
