Honda 2200 generator

Have 2017 21ft picked up in nov, wondering if any one has tried to run the AC with the Honda 2200, am planing on using it to run AC only, I've heard toe Honda 200 is a little small, but maybe the 200 would work OK?

Not a Honda, but similar. I've run the AC with the WEN 2000i with no problem. You had to take Eco mode off on mine to run the AC however.

My Honda 2000 runs the A/C on my 5.0TA, but I do take it off Eco Mode and turn off the converter.

I bought the 2200 a couple months ago and it runs the AC fine. You do have to make a plug connecting the neutral to the ground for the second receptacle on the generator; or turn off(bypass) the progressive converter for it to work.

Our 2000 runs the AC fine, but I wish it were a 2200 just the same. The 2200 has a gas shutoff.

If anyone in market for Honda Generator you might want to check out the igen 2500. If I was in market for new Generator I would seriously consider this one.

note those have nothing to do with the classic american industrial company Westinghouse, other than licensing the name. googling also suggests there's a recall on iGen 2500 due to them catching on fire.

Just to clarify for those that may be a little less familiar with all the systems and terminology...you would be bypassing the Progressive Industries EMS, not converter. The EMS is an Escape option that also goes by "surge protector". If you don't use the bonding plug on the generator as described above the EMS will hold out power on open ground error E2. The WFCO converter takes 120V AC power and converts it to 12V DC to run lights and accessories and/or charge the batteries. This only comes in to play if you have a marginally sized generator and you want to turn the converter off to reduce load.
