Yup.
Found a pair of trojan 185 yesterday. Cheap.

The magnum can select say, 20a to pull from genny, any extra needed will come from batteries.

My 2000W Yammi will start and run my 13.5K. But I don't try to do it. I found out accidentally. The thermostat was on from last trip when I plug in to genni. But nothing else was running.

I can start mine as well with a 2000watt. It had to be the only thing running. After the hard start capacitor install it started much easier but I also would not press my luck and do it all the time.

You just missed out, before up until Jan 1 they (eu2000i) were everywhere for $899. I was really tempted but didn't pull the trigger. Honda also had 0% financing for 18 months. I know the price drop is gone now, couldn't quite discern if the financing is too or not. When the money's free it gives you a little time to pay with no worries.

I am looking for one too, for me Honda is the only way to go. The Yamaha's do look nice, but there's 2 Honda dealers nearby. Cabelas is close and sells the Yamaha, but as I've found with other things, service after the sale, not so much.

I did actually find a guy on Craigslist that has a new one for $775. I just need to convince myself that I have $775 of need for a generator (talk about cold feet!).

You can always sell it again on Craigslist if the "boss" is unhappy with it!
