Re: Just ordered this generator from Costco.

I was going to say it looked like a super trap, but it is a super trap. I think my muffler is pretty good. I just want to direct the exhaust up.

Re: Just ordered this generator from Costco.

Speaking of A/C and generators, I was thinking of going with two 13,500 a/c units but saw elsewhere that one 15,000 unit cools a bus pretty good. Anyone have any experience with this? Will the Honda eu2000 power a 15,000w unit?

I'm not sure of the calculations but I know that your eu2000 won't power two A/C units.

Re: Just ordered this generator from Costco.

Our 2.5KW Onan will power our 13.5K AC unit with very little to spare (it's the motor surge that eats up the power). Basically figure 3K per AC unit. For 2 AC units you can get a switcher that will cycle the ACs (front, then back , then front but never at the same time) but I would be running more than 3K (more like 4K or 5K). We can run our AC unit while traveling down the road with the generator.... the only way we can run our AC unit while under way is to run our generator. Turn off generator when you pull into to refuel. At full load we go thru about 1/2 gal per hour.
