Definitive proof on Honda 2200

Well I just happened to be at the Honda dealer today and this generator followed me home.
Itís the new (in Canada) Honda 2200 inverter generator.
Brought it home, quickly made a neutral bonding plug up, started it up, plugged in the trailer and all was good. IMG_3680.JPGThe air conditioner started in high with no problem.

Down in our country we have a contractor supply outfit
Called Acme tools. They send out paper advertisements
Regularly. This week I got the 70th Anniversary offering. The Honda 2200EU is in the catalog this week for $950. Don’t know if this is a deal or not. Tax here is 7%.

Golly PG, I wish I understood what all those numbers meant, but it must be good. What I do understand that the only thing I don't like about my Escape is that I can't use my AC in this terribly hot and humid weather without electricity.

I bought a Honda 2000, for my Casita and ended up selling my Casita and generator just a few weeks later after I walked through an Escape at the Bluebonnet rally. I never used it and also found out it wasn't quite strong enough to start up the AC anyways.

Although we did get solar panels we did not buy an inverter. Do we need one to use the Honda 2200. I don't know what your Progressive Industries thing you showed in the ph0tos is but I don't think I have one. Guess I should go check Huh? By the way, how heavy is the Honda 2200?

Hi Nancy

No you donít need an inverter or an the Progressive Industries system just a Honda 2200i generator and your set for the long hot summer, AC wise anyway.

Dave thatís a good price $1521.00 out the door in Canada

I had a Casita and the Honda 2000 ran the A/C fine although the overload light would come on for a second or two when compressor kicked in. I now have a 2018 5.0 Escape and the Honda 2000 runs that A/C fine as long as it is not in the eco mode. I am considering getting a Honda 2200 though. I purchased a small platform from Harbor Freight that goes in the receiver hitch of my truck with a lockdown plate supplied by orbital machine works that secures the generator. This has worked out well for us as it keeps the generator locked and can stay in place all the time while traveling.

🤔 You can carry generator on receiver hitch on the truck while towing 5.0? Could take a pic of that setup?
