Thanks S, I had 2 batteries on it and had to cut the rack to keep it from hitting my bumper... So mine was too small for a Genny anyway

WW,
I remember you had to cut your rack down because of the bumper. That was a bummer. But like always, your finished product is Top Notch...

My wife still wants the cup holders you have by the recliners. Like I could make those... I tried to by the plastic ones that fold out....that went over real well....

Steve, the top of the Honda 3000 didn't rub on the front of the 29hfs when it was on the tongue rack?

Laura,
I had to remove the wheel kit and put back on the rubber feet. I also had to make sure the 3000 was as far forward on the rack as possible. There was about 1-2" between the back of the 3000 and the front of the 29hfs. I strapped down the 3000 pretty tight so it would not move AT ALL and made the trip to/from Sturgis with no rubbing.

It's doable, just need to be very careful on the placement....

Awesome, great to know. I have given it done thought to two Honda2000. I could use the extra power.

Laura,
I thought you got more power with the two 2000 (companion) than just the single 3000. Never really researched it much. I got the 3000 during a storm and that is all the store had. I have been happy with it but would like having the smaller 2000 when not needing the AC.

WW great job - matching color scheme too - I still haven't a box for my batteries yet - I've return 2 - I'm going for a rectangle one but haven't got the right fit yet....... Just using 4 battery boxes now looks like **** - but someday I'll have time to get ER done as well as yours -

I did the same thing with thick plastic not corrugated. U was able to get the plastic to slip in along the edges and just silicone in to prevent leakage.

Nice job on the insert. I like the idea! Looks like you used some corrugated art type material?
