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.

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

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.|

Can you PM me the details/price of a reputable place to pick up a Honda EU2000?

|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.|

I assume you received my PM?

I too have a 12k BTU A/C, and notice the starting wattage vs maintaining wattage is north of 2000. If I get that Honda, it would stress out the little guy unless I had two running with the connector cables...and like Cam said earlier...it may be too much.
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...?

Always ask for a discount.
