I just bought a Honda 2000 Companion. In tests at home it runs my Coleman/Airxcell 13.5K AC fine. I acknowledge that I have not yet tried it in the field, nor under extreme conditions.
It didn't need the fan start delay relay mod nor the start boost capacitor to work. I plan to install the boost capacitor as insurance.
I bought the companion because that's all the dealer had on the floor and they sold it to me at the same price as the standard model. The power output is no better or different than the standard model, operating independently.
The only difference in the Companion is the existence of the 30A connector socket and lack of the 12V DC connection. For myself, the 30A connector is convenient and I don't miss the 12V connector. Your needs may differ.
I don't think you'll be able to run the AC overnight without a long-term gas tank of some kind. Yamahas can be converted to propane without warranty problems. That may be more convenient from a long-running fuel perspective but I've read debates here as to the financial wisdom of that approach.
