2015 29HFS generator question

Hey everyone! Just sorting out a dilemma with generator for my toy hauler, will 2 HONDA EU2000 parallel work for my toy hauler?
Currently own a Powerhorse 6500 it works absolutely fine but tired of pushing up and down!! Thinking of purchasing the 2 Hondas that way 47lbs each only. Just want to make sure they will work and do the job.
Thanks

4000 watts is 33.3 amps
If your rig is 30 amps with 1 a/c you should fine.

Those Hondas are 2000 running amps? Or 2000 surge amps?

One of the advantage of 2 2000W generators is that if you are camping where you do not need the AC, you can usually get away with only taking one. If you get two, get one EU2000 and one EU2000 companion. That way with a simple to use parallel connecting kit you have a 30A outlet.

I wired them to the transfer switch. It was already installed under the bed. I don't have to drag out the power cable. When we stop for lunch while traveling, I just start one or both.

Nice , Steve. Does the rack come close to hitting the TV in a sharp turn?

No. Not a problem. It is too far from the tv.

The Honda's are 2,000 surge, continuous run 1600 watts. 26 amps total available current. On a hot day there might be an issue with restart.
