you might want to check to see if the water heater in turned off also that will kill a generator with all the other stuff.

Checking my owner's manual, the rated output of the Honda 2000 is 13.3 amps, max 2.0 Kva. Water heater has to be the culprit, just make sure it is on propane mode when using the generator.

Next possibilty is your convertor may have an issue but I can't see it pulling 13 amps unless everything is on with it.
Converter?

yep in fact he did !

With the wording as such I just plain missed it !


Ok now I would say "as suggested" turn all the breakers off and start flipping them on one by one.

It may be a gennie problem and not the camper at all ?

I apologize for misunderstanding.

Water heater was on...either way it did not like the 15K AC unit...was only using it when we are cleaning, etc....don't plan on camping anywhere without power..if I do then I guess we are buying the Honda companion unit.

I had my air and the electric portion of water heater on today and I was drawing 20-21 amps.
Mind you it was 70 and no humidity.
