Q: Which transfer switch should I purchase if I want to connect a Honda EU2000i and a Honda EU3000i?
by Mike Beihl from Pennsylvania on October 02, 2013

A: First, please remember that you cannot parallel two different size inverter generators together. You can only connect 2 - EU2000i's or 2 - EU3000i's together.

The best switches for these 120V only type units would be the following.....

Honda-32311-189018

APC-32316-UTS6H

by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Jim When you have the EU 2000I and the companion .... Do you connect the Parallel cables up first ... Then Start both units... Then connect the 30 amp... RV 120 cable.... Sounds right to you?.. Any other way in my opinion is dangerous and not right... What do you say??
by Frank from New Mexico on May 16, 2012

A: 1. Connect the parallel operation cable between the EU2000i Companion to either an EU2000i or another EU2000i Companion generator following the instructions supplied with the cable kit.

2. Start the engines and make sure the output indicator (green) on each generator comes on.

3. Plug an appliance into the 30A twist lock receptacle.

4. Turn on the appliance.

**If the generators are overloaded, or if there is a short circuit in a connected appliance, the overload indicator (red) will go ON. The overload indicator (red) will stay ON, and after about four seconds, current to the connected appliance(s) will shut off, and the output indicator (green) will go OFF. Stop both engines and investigate the problem.

Determine if the cause is a short circuit in a connected appliance or an overload. Correct the problem and restart the generator.

Follow the instructions included with the parallel operation cable kit. Before connecting an appliance or power cord to the generator:

Make sure that it is in good working order. A faulty appliance or power cord can create a potential for electrical shock.

If an appliance begins to operate abnormally, becomes sluggish, or stops suddenly, turn it off immediately. Disconnect the appliance, and determine whether the problem is the appliance or the rated load capacity of the generator has been exceeded.

Make sure that the combined electrical rating of the tools or appliances do not exceed that of the generator. Never exceed the maximum power rating of the generator. Power levels between rated and maximum may be used for no more than 30 minutes.

Never connect different generator models.

For parallel operation, use only a Honda approved parallel operation
cable kit (optional equipment) when connecting one EU2000i Companion to either an EU2000i or another EU2000i Companion generator.

Never connect different generator models.

For parallel operation, use only a Honda approved parallel operation cable kit (optional equipment, see page ) when connecting one EU2000i Companion to either an EU2000i or another EU2000i Companion generator.

Never connect or remove the parallel operation cable when the generator is running.

For single generator operation, the parallel operation cable must be removed.

***Substantial overloading that continuously lights the overload indicator (red) may damage the generator. Marginal overloading that temporarily lights the overload indicator (red) may shorten the service life of the generator.

Q: Jim-Can I parallel hook-up a Honda 3000 to a Honda 2000?
by Irv Williams from Massachusetts on March 16, 2012

A: Unfortunately you cannot parallel two different size Honda inverter generators. Their internal computer system will not recognize the other so they will not sync together.

This is true for all inverter generators that have parallel capability.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Do you recommend using the EU2000i with a sump pump (no other appliances will be connected at the same time), or is it too small for this use?
Thanks!

by Herb from New Jersey on September 01, 2011

A: The EU2000i can power a small sump pump. That's about it.

If you plan on using it for camping, it's a great model.

If you will only use it for home backup, save some money and buy an "emergency" portable generator instead.

Here's a great article that explains the differences:

How to Pick the Perfect Portable Generator
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: ARE THE GENERATOR WATER PROOF, CAN YOU LEAVE OUTSIDE IN RAIN, WITH ELECTRIC CORDS FOR INSIDE USED
by TONY from New Jersey on August 28, 2011

A: We DON'T recommend running generators in the rain. Water and electricity just don't mix.

You can place the generator on the driest side of the house that is blocking the wind.

You can also cover it with a make-shift shelter. Just make sure it gets plenty of air to breathe.

Finally, always point the exhaust away from any open windows or doors. It emits carbon monoxide gas, which can be deadly.

Q: Jim:

Will the Honda EU2000i handle a motor start up load in excess of the 13 amp rating for this generator? If so, how many amps in excess of the 13 and about for how long?
Thank You !!!

by Jeff Bacon from Ohio on April 05, 2011

A: This unit has a rated amperage output of 13.3A and can handle a surge amperage of 16.7A for a maximum of 30min.

by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Hi, I'm looking at the Honday EU2000i for my 23 foot 5th wheeler. Found your website thru google search. I was wondering about prices and where your located.

Many Thanks, Case

Honda Generator Works Great
We show pigs out of our trailer at several Jackpot shows throughout the summer. I bought this generator to run fans and clippers when we don't park near an electrical outlet. Works great, easy start and runs so quiet. We can have it right by us and still be able to carry on a conversation. It will run all day on a single fill up. Love it!

Don't buy the cover for this generator. IT DOES NOT FIT!! Wasted my money there. It will not fit over it.

I use this generator to power an oxygen concentrator while I am camping away from a power source out in the desert. I am a prospector and rely on this generator to supply me with electricity to run my needed equipment while doing this. I have used the generator twice since purchasing it for sixteen hours with very good results. I am very pleased with this machine so far.

Honda Eu2000 Generator Cover
The cover fits the generator well...almost too well. It's a bit of a struggle to get the cover over the top of the generator. But once in place, it does the job. The opening flap at the top to access the handle is a good thing.

All Is Good
Good Generator - Good Cables - all is well. If it sits for more than 6 months it doesn't like to start with older gas but other than that it is great. It typically starts in 3 pulls unless its below 10 degrees.

Product Expert
Kevin,
If the generator is going to sit with gasoline in it you will want to use a fuel stabilizer in the gasoline. It's better to drain it completely before you store it.

Hurricane Sandy
8 days & counting w/ no power! Our parallel e2000i's have provided power for furnace, 2 fridges, computer, TVs, lights- damn near everything - garage door opener & electronic doggie door!

I would recommend this generator to all- its unbelievable - 8 DAYS RUNNING & counting. I fitted both generators w/ extended run tanks and heat and hot water is flowing! It's going down to the 30's tonite in NY and my family is protected.

T.,
Please be advised that using extended run gas tanks can void the warranty. Allowing cool down periods, during refueling will extend the life of the generator. Also, following the maintenance schedule found in the owner's manual will keep the warranty valid.

New To Generators
I'm glad I shopped different brands. I think that the Honda 2000 is a bit more costly, but I feel I got a reasonable price.

I'm glad I found Electric Generators Direct and I'll be returning to this site. The cart is an excellent choice for small generators like this one.

The purchase of the cover makes sense. I like the Camo color I bought.

Excellent Combo
Just wired this switch in today and did a test run--outstanding! Paired with the Honda EU200i generator its great. I have a condo & this system runs my gas furnace, living rm lights, tv, etc., bedrm lights & tv, and my refrigerator with ease. The Honda is so quiet, you don't even hear it outside. Take that CL&P!!

Would Not Crank
Purchased new Eu2000i, Used it for two hrs, shut it off and it would not crank again, lost all compression. Now I am struggling with a authorized dealer to have it repaired through the mfg, warranty. I am getting the impression that authorized dealers resent repairing units purchased on line!!! It remains to be seen if I will get satisfaction on this purchase, so far it has been questionable.

Robert,

Good Little Generator
My son and I bought this generator for our hunting camp.We use it for lights,fan,tv,microwave,and ac. When we use the microwave we cut off the ac. The unit will run all night not using the ac on less than a gallon of gas,and you can hardly hear it run.

So Quiet I Thought It Had Died!
I took the generator out of the shipping box, gave the owners manual a quick read and topped it up with oil and gas. Applied full choke and the engine started on the fifth pull. I gave it about three minutes run time and switched it into "eco" mode and plugged in my camper with the refrigerator and all lights turned on. Then I decided to walk out to the mailbox and check my mail.

The driveway is about 120 ft. long and I was only halfway to the mailbox when I realized I... more
