    That is a toughie. The only difference that comes to mind between gen power and land power is land power is neutral bonded (the neutral and ground wires are bonded together on a land-line, but NOT on a pair of Honda generators). I'd suggest firing up the twin Hondas and then slowing switching on each device. See if there is one in particular that starts the on/off problem. See if you can isolate what in the RV might be the source of the problem (again, assuming the Honda's check out okay). Next, if possible, ask your dealer to connect a single Honda 3000 - 4000 watt generator to see what happens. If the problem persists, it sure sounds like something is going on with the RV, but not sure why shore power is okay. I can only speak for sure what the Honda's should do, and there are specific procedures Honda dealers use to confirm performance. Hope this helps a little. Let me know if there's anything else I can help of luck. -Robert@Honda

    Robert-It was suggested through my post that you might be able to help with my problem. As I explained in my post I was running two Honda 2000 gens paralell to run my 2010 AS and after using for about 4-5hrs and checking my AC and other appliances the power in the camper started to go off and on in about 2 second intervals with only the tv,fridge and some lights on at the time. The gen warning lights did not indicate any problems. Then after unhooking from the gens and restarting the problem continued. When I then connected to the land power everything worked perfectly. The Hondal dealer checked them out and could not find any problems and said the issue must be with the camper. My RV tech said if there was a problem with the camper I would have the same results when plugged in to the land power. Whats your thoughts? Thanks for the help!
