One you get them do this test, I'm guessing that it will have full voltage.
With only the companion running try your microwave to see if it overloads. From a load aspect a single EU2000i can fully run a camper except for the AC, electric water heater and your fireplace on full. The electric water heater and fireplace on high draw 1200-1300 watts each so it would run one or the other, but there's not much energy left.
For some reason mine didn't like running the microwave on one genset through the 30A plug, but the same genset did fine plugged into the 15A outlet.
I'm thinking that the inverter unit sensed that the parallel kit was plugged in and expected half the load to be taken up by the other genset which wasn't there.
If you're like me you're going to play with the new toys, I did. Only I didn't test the microwave on one genset through the parallel adapter. Yours being a companion might be different, allowing you all 13.3 available amps through the 30A adapter. If it works for you I might sell mine and buy a companion.
