Parallelling Honda gennys

Anybody know if I can use the standard Honda parallalling wiring kit to connect an EU2000i with an EU1000i?

Thanks!

I don't believe you can parallel different sizes together.

i've read many posts on RV.net's Tech Issues forum, of that pairing working.
i have a 2000 and have access to a 1000.

That would be sweet. I have a 1000 and just ordered a 2000 - it would be nice if I didn't have to sell the smaller unit.

Let me know if you are able to test it.

Well the reply says you can only parallel two of the same model and size inverters...
So does the owners manual on the 2000...

Bikendan - I'd like to know where you saw the odd pairing would work so I could look into it further.

Thanks,
Glenn

check out the Tech Issues forum at RV.net.
i swear i've read a number of threads on this subject and that it was possible.
i am getting closer to 60 so maybe i'm having a Senior Moment!

Im pretty sure you can not mis match them. Lets say you have a 2000 and a 1000 for a total of 3000 watts in parallel, if you are pulling 3000 watts it would be split between the two generators. Therefore, overloading the 1000 by 500 Watts.
