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 Mike, 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 Mike, 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 Mike, 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

30 Amp Socket
Disappointed that the 30 amp socket isn't the type that you find in RV parks. I guess I'll have to find an adapter.
Pros: Quiet, Light Weight
Cons: Expensive, Need An Adapter

Fuel Efficiency
Purchased the generator for use on a boat to keep battery bank charged up. We're a little disappointed with the fuel efficiency as we are only getting 3.5 hours out of a tank of gas, compared to other reviews of 8 to 9 hours. Evidently the fuel efficiency depends on the load you place on the generator. Would be nice if they mentioned this in their advertisements so we would be aware. Otherwise, the generator works well, easy to operate and maintain.

Purchased To Go With First Honda Eu2000i
I purchased a Honda EU2000i last year to use with my 25 foot trailer. The unit provided power and battery charging during 10 weeks on the road. The generator is lightweight, quiet and reliable. I was comfortable using this generator in developed campsites as it did not bother the other campers. I also hauled around a large 4 KW generator for those rare times that the air conditioner was needed. The larger unit is heavy, noisy but also reliable. I did not feel comfortable using this... more

Camp Ready
This is my second Honda Inverter that will be hooked up in parallel providing the extra power we need. In my experience with the 1st Honda I could have not made a better choice. The unit runs great, quiet, reliable and super efficient on fuel. I hook my units to a 6 gallon fuel tank and do not need to worry about fuel consumption. Oil changes are easy. I highly recommend the Honda for your generator requirements. Its a HONDA!!

Honda Eu2000ikc - Everything We Hoped It Would Be
My husband and I had never dry-camped but decided to take a chance dry-camping in the beautiful Smokies. We purchased the Honda EU2000IKC on a recommendation from friends. Wow! It lived up to its name and made our 1st dry-camping experience one that we shall not forget.

Not only did it run everything in the camper that we needed to be comfortable but it was quiet, easy to crank, and the price was affordable. To top it off, we did not pay tax or shipping on the Honda EU2000IKC because we... more

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.
