Honda eu20001 generators in parallel

Hello, I am looking at using 2 EU20001 Hondas in parallel, and I am just wondering how well this works with the 13,500 air conditioner. I currenty have a cheap 3000watt gen that barely runs the A/C. Or should I just Buy the big 4000W but is is heavy and less versitile than haveing 2 2000w generators

Thanks for your comments

We have the pair of EU 2000 and they run our 15k a/c just fine. Highly recommend

I have two 2000W Champions that are very similar to the Honda, except about half the price. When I hook them in parallel, the run my A/C just fine if I dont also have the charger pulling a bunch of current.

huh? I thought OP was asking about Honda's. YES two 2000i's will handle the AC with no problem. AND be pretty quiet and dependable to boot.

Yes, I read the OP. He was asking about Hondas. However, as I stated, the Chanpions are very similar to the Hondas. In fact, they have almost identical specifications. Hence, I figured that my experience with the Champions would be applicable to his quest for information regarding the Honda.

Those 2 honda's will be the cats behind for you.

Great Horned Owl, I too have now got the 2 Champion genny's. For the price they sure are quite and havn't let me down at all. Had it running AC and a fridge, no issue. I agree with your statement that OP will benefit in his Honda research by comparing to almost identical units.

We should also mention that two Champions can stack, one atop the other. The Hondas can't.
