There is a disclaimer for the Yamaha 2000 it doesn't have enough start up amps(?), and could damage unit. There is a bypass jumper wire inside your PI unit watch video on hooking it up. Be careful jumper is a blue wire and there are 2 of them. PI sells a bypass switch that installs in place of jumper or you can make one yourself.

Wow, that link to Amazon is over twice the regular price for that model. They average around $550-600 US.

Thanks Hondaman. That is what's happening. I see the overload led flash when the PI tries to connect it. Everything is off in trailer but generac can't handle that without a sag. I will return it to Costco.

with a hardwired surge protector and using a Honda, you will still need to make a grounding plug. And I can run the a/c with one Honda 2000 I, and water pump, tv, and overhead fan

Honda does not recommend running an AC with the 2000. Good way to ruin AC. Later RJD

It could be the Genny is not up to the task or you need a "Ground-Neutral Bond” jumper plug (edison plug).
