Excellent find, should negate the worries about running the A/C.

wow nice. I guess my first question would Be Is this 200 watt increase enough to run the air and battery charger at the same time in a escape. from what i understand the 2000I would run the air but not if charging low batteries at same time. If this new unit would do it I might have to upgrade

I'd say no, I looked one time when both the air was running and we had just plugged the trailer into and AC outlet and it was showing 19 amps. This was after 2 days of running on batteries and taking a 500 foot trip to a site with power.

Looks ike a good improvement over the 2000. Anything that makes it quieter is a bonus.. Got my hopes up for the same db level as the eu3000. Still might be an option for me at some point when the Christmas visa settles down.

Honda generators

I bought a 1300 watt Honda generator for the Recreation Department to run an Atec pitching machine in the spring of 1986. I was up to their shop this fall and there it sat. Still works and never repaired. The guys still like to use it but with the proliferation of Cordless tools I don’t think it’s used as much as we used to. The 2200 should solve the Air Conditioning question as long as the AC draw doesn’t change in an “upgrade”. I wondered why one of my local Honda dealers had such attractive pricing last month on the 2000’s.

Constant innovation. Very nice but it you want lots of power you are still going to have to wire two in parallel.

I'm betting that you can pair it with the new one.

I added the EasyStart™ Soft Starter to the air conditioner on my 2012 19" and it works great with my 2000 watt SOB (some other brand) generator. The generator would not power the AC before the EasyStart was added. One of the few thing I have purchased that exceeded expectations. I found that I could run both the AC and the on-board power center/charger if I plugged in the charger BEFORE I turned on the AC. So it seems there is a large power draw on the initial start to the charger. There are numerous posts on the issue of soft start devices but I wanted to add to this thread and recommend that you add a soft start device to the AC even if your generator will work without it.

Honda generators have long had issues when operated in cold conditions ( Cold defined as below zero) Yamaha generators did not seem to have these same issues .
When wiring homes in Minnesota during the winter , we found Yamaha generators to function better and be more dependable.
If I was in the market for an Inverter generator for occasional use , I would give serious consideration to the HF 3500 watt inverter generator.
