Generac iQ2000 inverter/generator and R-Pod 178
I did a bunch of research on portable generators and decided on a new Generac iQ2000 Inverter. It is quieter than a Honda EU2000 and had really good reviews. So, I went on a trip and tried to use this for the first time on my 2015 R-Pod 178. The generator fired right up and gave me the green ready light. As soon as I plug in the camper, it switches to red and will not power anything in the R-Pod. The only things turned on in the camper are the clock on the microwave which instantly comes on with electric and the clock on the Radio/DVD player. I cant turn these off. Everything else was off and/or unplugged.
I tested my dads old 1978 camper with the iQ2000 and it worked just fine. Not enough to power the AC, but lights and outlets worked fine.
What am I doing wrong? Shouldn't this unit be adequate for this small little camper? Thoughts or suggestions?
I went ahead and returned the iQ2000 today. Suggestions from any other R-Pod owners for a good size inverter/generator unit?
