To much red isn't a good thing.....one has to mix it up a little bit !! Hmm maybe that's why I really like the color purple, you have me wondering now--??? Do they make a generator in purple ??

I went with the Yamaha 3000iseb. Yamaha guarantees it will run 15k a/c which it does do and I can also run microwave and lcd tv at the same time. I've had it about 5 years now and have not had one problem with it.

According to the Honda website and posts I have read, the Honda 3000 will run "most" 13.5k a/c units but very few people have gotten it to run a 15k.

Are you saying that you can run the 15K a/c, microwave and LCD TV at the same time with the Yamaha 3000iseb??????

It had been a while since I camped with the generator and I couldn't remember exactly so I just hooked it up to test. I can run the a/c and two LCD TV's or the a/c and microwave. That test was also when the temp was around 90 degrees today.

Holycow, that is one sweet yamaha, thanks for the answer regarding the a/c, tv and microwave running.... I will have to look a little deeper with the Yamaha. I was set on the Honda..... Thank you very much....

Many well made pieces of equipment can operate at loads above their ratings - for short periods of time - and at the potential loss of total longevity.

The manual with my Honda 2000 states that it can be slightly overloaded, at the expense of overall life. Keep in mind that some of that 'overload' capability is actually built-in to handle the inrush current. Which by its nature is not a continuous load. Overloading it on a continuous basis could lead to an untimely failure.

The Yamaha, like the Honda, is a well made piece of equipment. I bought Honda because of the nearby service availability. Had my dealer carried Yamaha instead of Honda, then I'd be writing about my Yamaha.

The overload light will briefly cut on when I start the AC using my Yamaha EF2400is.
