Bought mine from wisesales and it was ~$900 delivered.

Also look at hard start capacitors. Save some bucks vs buying something prepackaged

Thanks! Wise is where I bought the one I have. I was saving them for last to check. I called and they say $899 delivered which is I think 100 less than I paid for my first one. I'll probably order one from them in a week or two. (After I'm done looking for that *less than* $900 unicorn.)

Based on their Web site (which requires registration to see the pricing), a Honda Eu2000i can be had from Mayberry's for $899 with free shipping. For another $100 more, there is a model of the Eu2000i with a 30A twist-lock connector also. Visit http://www.mayberrys.com for the details (no affiliation, just passing along the local knowledge).

Good luck,

Bill

Mayberrys has the EU2000i for $899 and the companion unit for $999. They're advertising free shipping for orders over $199. You might check them out at www.mayberrys.com.

Re: Honda eu2000i and air conditioning

Just curious why the SPP6E was chosen for the test vs. SPP6. I called Supco Tech Support about this and they mentioned they would not recommend the E model in a generator config .. Something about keeping the start charge in the cap too long or something. Thoughts?

Re: Honda eu2000i and air conditioning

The supco hard start kits heat up. PTC I think they are called (getting old and forgetful here) lol A traditional relay and start cap would work but really is not necessary.

Many if not all compressors in window type units use rotary compressors. Marine and central may use a scroll type compressors. All are very very low amperage starting.

Remember name plate rating are not actual it's a guide. To get real amperage draw you need a clamp on type meter. You will be surprised how little amps they draw even though the name plate suggests much more.

Has anyone heard anything about this. It's only been available a few months.

I, just this week, finished a year long saga with the Honda 2000 and a 16K BTU air conditioner. This is what I learned:
  • The Smart Start is specifically designed to work with a Dometic AC unit; however, it works perfectly well with non Dometic units.
  • The Smart Start will allow a Honda 2000 to power only certain Dometic 16K AC units - they must have the 410 coolant.
  • I installed a Smart Start on a non Dometic unit and managed to get the ramp up amperage down to 29 amps. The Honda 2000 just couldn't do it consistently. Sometimes it could, mostly it couldn't.
  • I installed a Victron Energy Multiplus inverter charger that has a power assist mode and all works well now. This was not an inexpensive install; however, it greatly upgrades my electrical system and it needed it anyway. The alternative was a genset and that would have been even more expensive and, I would have still had to upgrade the electrics.

Do your home work with the Smart Start- Dometic is very specific on which AC units will be able to accept it and be powered by a Honda 2000.

Good Luck.

Lazarette. Be careful with the hot exhaust.
