Storage box for Honda 2200 and BBQ tank

The best dual fuel conversion for Honda 2000-2200 is Hutch Mountain Clean install with quick connect fitting and retains true dual fuel capability.

Dual e2200i for AC purposes

"insert forgive dumb questions phrase here"

So I too am new to AS - bought a 2019 FC 26RB.

Planning on adding solar to keep the 12V DC topped off when able.

After talking to different folks and doing some research, it looks like I'm going to be investing in dual e2200i's in parallel for AC purposes. (I'm spending some time in warmer climates.)

Am I correct to assume I can power these generators via the propane units on my AS?

Is this realistic for the purposes of running some AC in conjunction with solar?

Curious how fast I'd be burning through my propane.

Hey, Jeff. We have a 2019 FC RB, also.

And, we just bought a Genconnex LP Honda EU2200i Companion, to use with our onboard LP.

We installed a MicroAir Easy Start, and can run our (single) AC on the generator. No need for two generators with one AC!

I like where your head's at. Let me follow up a question with a question.

How many feet is your FC? I'm at 26 right now.

I have two AC units - but it's just me and the dog primarily in the 'Stream.

1. Do you think I can pull enough AC to stay cool/microwave here and there, etc. with one unit and one generator right now and then add the 2nd generator at a later date?

2. Are you consuming a noticeable use of LP or is it pretty manageable, ie maybe need to refill propane once a month or so based on use and climate?

From https://www.genconnexdirect.net/comm...Question:3213:

Can I run two EU2200i’s at the same time from my camper’s 1/4” propane quick disconnect? Yes, if the connector is only a few feet from the tank and if you are just using the two to start a 12,000 or 14,000 BTU A/C unit that normally run at approximately 1600 Watts once started. No if you want to run both generators in total above this power for any length of time or have your 1/4” quick disconnect more than a few feet away. In this case you should have your line upgraded to 3/8” i.d. with a 3/8” quick disconnect installed.
