Honda EU2000i Security

Just wondering if anyone has the following, with regards to security of the Honda EU2000i generator. I am at a standstill between a security box ~ $380US or the lowpro lockdown ~ $204US currently.

Any feedback would be helpful - Thanks Tom

LowPro LockDown. Keep what’s yours.

I bought the dometic LW3000 it has enough power to run the 13500 ac and is almost as quiet as the honda 3000. We camped this last weekend and used it for running the microwave and coffee maker. The family camping next to us made comments on how quiet it was. Paid $695 on line with free shipping.

There is also a youtube video that demonstrates how to operate it for the A/C. It also has electric key start and weighs around 80lbs. Click image for larger version

Update. I have a Lacrosse 323 rst. I purchased a Champion 3100 inverter generator. It ran the 15,500 dometic air conditioner with no problem. We'll see how well it does for the long term. So far so good. Thanks

I have an older Mitsubishi generator, 4000 MGE that powers my 5'vr really well. It has a noise rating of 68 dba which is loud by today's standards, but when I got it in 1999 it was one of the quietest available. I've seen the numbers on the new inverters but I've never seen anybody give a rating when running in parallel with a second unit. I know the two would have to be louder than one but would they be quieter together than my Mitsubishi.

There is a high altitude jet kit for the 3100i.

I have the 3500/4000 synchronous and it has been bullet proof for many years now. I also have the Twins and yes, under light loads they will run a full 12 hours on ONE gallon of gas each.

There is a altitute jet for the 3000 synchro as well...I have the remote start version and all told it has EVERY feature I could want ...just not super duper quiet nor an inverter....

But I digress. far as the 3100 I would want to see one on my ac first. ...I hear the surge capacity on start is great so of it would run one of my 15k units it may be a better solution than the unwieldy but amazing honda 6500.....

So, I have a 15k a/c on my Avenger. Better to get a 4000W gennie (and if so suggestions?) or parallel two Hondas?

I'd parallel two Hondas, or the manufacturer of your choice. Easier to carry, easier to manage, if you don't need AC you can run just one.

Just too many advantages to it.
