night0wl Folks - hate to dredge up a thread that is ancient history...but over a year after this post, I was able to procure a local EU2000 and run it on my CruiseAir 12k BTU A/C just fine. I've placed the order with Mayberrys....no more hot steamy nights for me!

While the A/C was running, I never heard it throttle down to eco mode once. Looks like the A/C will keep the generator loaded up a good long while, so I may run the A/C only at night to cool the cabin for sleeping. Fans during the daytime it seems.

night0wl Mayberry's new is $869 shipped anywhere in the USA. If you can get 5 or more buddies, its $850.

I think they do charge a handling charge though

HeadHoncho I just got back from buying a 2 year old EU2000i that I found on craigslist. Less than 50 hours run time, looks great, works perfectly. $700.

You gotta move fast on these CL Hondas though. I was the first one to respond to the ad and the guy said he had many offers after he talked to me.

Fstbttms Check craigslist. I use a EU2000i in my business and am shopping for a second unit. In my area I see them new on CL for under $1000 and used in the $650-$850 range. Prices on used EU2000i generators are definitely dropping.

I bought mine off ebay from Mayberry (also listed previously) it was for around 690 US (2005). My experience, as I use it for Rving and powering things at home when a major storm comes through. IT will handle more than spec'd load - I get about 12 hrs running a full size fridge, microwave, tv, vcr and lights on a tank of gas. When it gets a huge amp load - it revs up to meet the startup requirements then settles back down. Startup of appliances etc is always the kicker (same goes with invertors etc). It is extremely portable and it does decrease consumption once load settles.

84westy I purchased the Honda after using both on my Catalina 30. It runs my 12k BTU reverse cycle very well. The down side to the Honda is runtime on a fill up; at 15.1 amps, it will run 4 hours. It really sucks to have to get out of the cabin and fill it up at 2:00am. I tried the Yamaha, and liked the power and available runtime, but the size and weight killed it for me. The Honda cost about $900 from a local vendor including tax. The Yamaha is closer to $1100, but the cost per Watt is basically the same. If you run a pair the perceived sound level will be about 3 dB ("A" weighted) higher than one unit.

Can you let us know what happens when your A/C kicks in to the Honda? Does it shake, drop or rev up? Does it shake? Conch out...?
I've also read comments from folks here that the H2000 will not run a 12k BTU A/C. As it runs mine fine with no indication of hesitation, I always wonder why...
I should mention that it ran fine both before and after I installed a soft-start cap in the A/C which I got for free and thought it might help when other stuff was already drawing from the genset.

I assume you received my PM?

Use it to charge my Macbook, ipod, phone, tools, etc .. works perfectly.
