Honda EU 2000 I gives E2 error

I'm testing my Honda EU 2000 with our 19. The surge protector is giving me band E2 code and I'm not getting power.

Anyone else experience this? What's the solution?

Thanks,

Dan

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. that did it. Unfortunately, our old EU 2000i just won't keep the AC going. Guess I'll have to look for more power.


Anyone tried the new EU 2200i?

yamaha 2400

My 2400 watt yamaha runs the Escape 21 just fine . I turn off the hot water elec and just use it for A/C .The only problem is the 2400 is 75 lb and its getting harder to pick up and move around . What is the Dometic A/C how many btu's is it 9200 or 11000?
Ive been thinking of buying a 9200 btu A/C for my boat which will run on a 2000watt genset Thats to bad theHonda won't run our dometic A/C

Yours or ours would be the perfect test bed around August to try the New EU2200 Honda generator. The extra 200 watts should be enough to do it. Or maybe have someone up around 7000 feet try it I agree the Yamaha EF2400iSHC is not an easy thing to move. I'm thinking of leaving ours in the garage to run the fridge and freezer or lend to family ( more likely ) as needed and picking up the new Honda if it will work.

They're not cheap at around $300, but installing a MicroAir EasyStart in your AC unit would allow your eu2000 to run the AC.

They may have a Dometic soft start type capacitor, but the EasyStart is not the same thing.

Perhaps someone can explain the difference between easy start and soft start......

I just realized, I forgot to put the refrigerator on propane. I'll do another test with the fridge on propane and see how it goes.


I've been thinking about themicro-air soft start. There are some convincing YouTube videos on this. Before buying a bigger generator, I'll try the soft start.



I don need to be hoisting a heavier generator.
