The Honda and Yamaha dB ratings are 1/4 to full load. The Powerhouse ratings are from no load to full load.
with a db of 67, that puts it in the open-framed Champion 3500's noise level range.

As the OP, I'm surprised to see this thread still going, so, an update. I bought the Yamaha 2400iSHC about 2- 3 months ago, and finally tried it to see if it'd run our Dometic 13.5 AC. With everything off, it started the AC fine. I then tried a bunch of lights and a fantastic fan while AC was still on with no problems. No big items. It was a hot day, 90's, near sea level. So, we're happy. Nice little generator.

Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and input.

Scott,
based on this thread, I also bought a yamaha 2400 recently. I tested it with my AC, with the fan on first and it worked. I did that at home. I then went out and dry camped for a few days.......ran the battery down for 2 days then started the generator and tried t fire up the AC....no go ((

I am going to try again. I assume tht the charger was drawing too much power to the batteries and hence the problem. I specifically went out and bout a B&D charger so I can chareg the bterries first thing in the orning, then use the generator to run the AC mid day.....i need it since y wife works form he trailer when we are out.....

I will update you of progress.

I've got a Honda EU3000Handi & am quite satisfied w/ it. We used it 2 weeks ago during a 24 hour power outage.

This past weekend we were surrounded by other generators. The 5500W Troy Bilt next to us was probably as loud as 1 of their roto tillers.

LOU, I will be buying a Yamaha EF3000iSEB with remote wireless control. Have you had any trouble with the remote control assembly or operation? Thanks for info.

None at all. I LOVE my remote start. Worth every penny not having to get dressed at 7 AM to start the generator when quiet hours end to make coffee. Just press the start button and watch the volt meter for 120 VAC. You have to watch the voltmeter since you can't hear the generator running from inside the camper.

I'll look around... somewhere I have the instructions for wiring in a fan delay into the AC, so that it starts about 5 seconds after the compressor, giving the AC a "softer" start. I may have gotten it from that "other" forum, but I'll look around.

I did it to mine, it took about 30 minutes (or less), and the parts cost less than $25, as I recall.

Makes the AC much easier to start when on generator.

I got a Honeywell HW2000I. It ran the AC and electric hot water in our 235rks all day long. Need to turn the AC off to use the microwave. Havent been able to find a LP kit for it yet.

I found it! I hope that it doesn't offend anyone that it's on the "other" forum, but here's the link:

Excellent!

It is all perspective...some might consider FRF "the other forum".
