Which transfer switch should I purchase if I want to connect a Honda EU2000i and a Honda EU3000i?

Answer
First, please remember that you cannot parallel two different size inverter generators together. You can only connect 2 - EU2000i's or 2 - EU3000i's together.

The best switches for these 120V only type units would be the following.....

Honda-32311-189018

APC-32316-UTS6H

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??

Answer
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.

Jim-Can I parallel hook-up a Honda 3000 to a Honda 2000?
Irv Williams

Answer
Unfortunately you cannot parallel two different size Honda inverter generators. Their internal computer system will not recognize the other so they will not sync together.

This is true for all inverter generators that have parallel capability.

Do you recommend using the EU2000i with a sump pump (no other appliances will be connected at the same time), or is it too small for this use? Thanks!

Answer
The EU2000i can power a small sump pump. That's about it.

If you plan on using it for camping, it's a great model.

If you will only use it for home backup, save some money and buy an "emergency" portable generator instead.

Here's a great article that explains the differences:

ARE THE GENERATOR WATER PROOF, CAN YOU LEAVE OUTSIDE IN RAIN, WITH ELECTRIC CORDS FOR INSIDE USED
TONY

Answer
We DON'T recommend running generators in the rain. Water and electricity just don't mix.

You can place the generator on the driest side of the house that is blocking the wind.

You can also cover it with a make-shift shelter. Just make sure it gets plenty of air to breathe.

Finally, always point the exhaust away from any open windows or doors. It emits carbon monoxide gas, which can be deadly.
