Q: What's the difference between a EU2000IKC Companion and the regular EU2000i?
by James Erickson from Utah on May 06, 2014

A: Thanks for your inquiry.

Certain Honda generators have the ability to be paralleled together like the EU2000 generators. The standard EU2000iS has a one duplex outlet and in order to parallel this unit you will need the EU2000i Companion model which will have the 30-amp outlet in order to get the power from both units.

Below is a link to the Parallel Kit which has a video that explains the connections.

Honda EU2000 & EU2000 Inverter Companion Kit with Parallel Cables

by Jared, Product Expert
Q: Can I wire a 2000i and the 2000i companion, using the 30 Amp companion outlet, to a 30 Amp 120/240V 8 circuit transfer switch wired into a home breaker box.
by John from Wisconsin on January 17, 2013

A: It is not recommended to connect a 120V only generator system to a 120/240V transfer switch because you will be feeding 120V to only one side of the switch hence not providing power to 1/2 of the switch.

There are 120V only type transfer switches that will work with the packaged EU2000i and EU2000i companion that we offer.


30A Manual Transfer Switches

Just select the 120V only versions.

by Jared, Product Expert
Q: What is a inverter generator?
by Francine Breland from New Jersey on December 28, 2012

A: An inverter generator is a power generator that can process raw power into a power feed similar to the power received through power lines. The generator part of an inverter generator is usually powered by gasoline or diesel fuel. "Inverter" means that the power is converted from direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC).

Typically inverter generators are much smaller then standard open frame style generators and tend to operate at very low noise levels. This makes them perfect for tailgating or camping and in some cases able to power one or two items in your home in an emergency.

Q: Is there a way i can get a manual for my Honda generator?
by James Wetzel from Wisconsin on June 20, 2012

A: Here is the owner's manual link for the Honda generators....

Honda Generator Manuals
by Jared, 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.

Great Machine!
Purchased this after months of research and planning. Using to power critical loads in the house and portable operations.

Paired with Protran transfer switch to power 120 volt loads in the house. Picked 2K unit instead of 3K because of size and price. For same price of 3K unit I can buy two of these for 4KW.

More details in the video below...

Pros: light, easy to use, quiet, able to parallel with like units, built in oil/fuel drain, built in hour meter.

Cons: oil changes can... more

Great Add On To My Eu2000i
I really like this generator. I had bought the EU2000i two weeks prior and decided I wanted to take advantage of running two parallel to get a 30 amp output for my RV. I can now run both and feel secure running my air conditioner in a pinch plus my residential refrigerator in my RV. They work great. Only wish it came with an hour meter to monitor the hours for maintenance. I installed one myself, but for the price these machines cost, it should come with one. Still, runs so very smoothly and is... more

So Far, So Good......
Impressed by the quick delivery and price provided by P.E.D. I've used the Honda 2000 probably 1-2 hrs so far and it is easy to use to this point. I'm preparing for a cross country RV trip and will need the generator periodically while camping.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Store, High Quality, Price

Honda, Nothing But The Best!
Quiet, light enough to move around easily. Starts every time with single pull, so very reliable and it runs everything needed on the Arctic Fox trailer (outside of the AC). And one could easily tandem a pair of EU 2000's and run that too.
Pros: Quiet, Light Weight, Reliable, Easy To Store

It's quiet, light weight and runs everything needed, but the AC on the Arctic Fox trailer and even at that one could easily tandem another EU2000 and the AC would be up and running too. You cannot beat Honda reliability.

Wouldn't Buy If I Had To Do Over
Rebuilt engine with less than 30 hours on it. Oil sensor shuts down engine in cold weather, even with oil filled to the top. Talked to other people with this problem. They say replacing sensor doesn't help. I ended up paying full price for a refurbished generator. Honda will not replace. Only fix. Not happy.
Pros: Quiet
Cons: Low Quality, Durability, Rebuilt Engine After Less Than 30 Hrs Valve Stuck Open

Excellent Quality
I bought this generator to back feed into a 30amp RV outlet to my house. It powers my entire 1,200sq ft house with ease. Runs my 52" tv, refrigerator, furnace, and all the lights at the same time all while being very quiet and efficient. I'd recommend one to anyone.

Portable Power
This unit performs well and does what I wanted it to do. I used it to run things in my camper instead of using the built in onan 5500. I used about 1.5 gallons of gas per day with the EU2000IKC versus the 5 to 6 gallons I normally use with the onan unit. I didn't need to run the air conditioner so using the smaller unit did all I needed it to do.I did watch what I operated and when, I couldn't run the microwave and hot water heater at the same time so I only turned the water heater on when I... more
