The manual does not show this FYI:

But on p. 54 it does show the way to drain the carb for storage, as was discussed earlier (maybe on another thread?).

Next time you are near a Honda repair shop, you could drop it off for a warranty look-see.

PS -- YouTube seems to have lots of good videos on Honda generators, maybe there is an answer there?

Just ordered two GenConnex propane only conversion kits for our pair of Honda 2,000 watt generators. We have a spare 30 pound propane tank that could drive both units at the same time. They are coming with the hose kit to allow one or both to operate off of the single tank.

Also got the hose kit to tie into the propane outlet on the front of an Airstream.

Be careful not to break the limiter stop....very little adjustment, factory set.

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?

2000i idle speed

Thanks Bob that's good to know. I have been doing a lot of research on this and it appears that the amount of vibration that my new honda is having is probably normal in the eco mode. I ran it for a few hrs today with a small heater plugged in and all went well. Thanks again for the help. Rand

The 12 volt capability is pretty worthless anyway. Puts out a very small amperage. You're better of using a proper battery charger and the honda 120V plug.
