Congrats on the new generator. I have a Honda 2000w I bought back in 2005 and it has been a great generator. I am waiting for warmer weather also to see if it can handle the a/c in my camper. In my TT I had, if everything was off, the Honda would run the a/c. It was a little hard to start but once it did, it ran ok. Turned something on and it would bog down and sometimes quit. I had a 13,500 BTU unit in the TT so maybe it may work. If not, no big deal.
Good Luck with your new genny.

My new generator arrived today and my first impression is that it looks well built and feels like a quality piece of equipment. I hope to get it fired up this weekend and see what it`s limitations are. The generator was well packaged and I would not hesitate to recommend Wise Equipment sales, they had one of the best prices that I could find on a new generator from a large company.

Here is the guy selling the one with electric start and free shipping.
If you make an offer of $1000 for this one he will take it.

That is what I had and sold because it was too heavy for just me to get into the Pickup. Dry that weighs 143lbs.
My new Boliy weighs 70 lbs dry and still 3,000 watts.

I just finished reading all of the owners manual and I still have two questions about the generator;

1. There is a ground stud on the side of the generator and the owners manual says to ground the generator before using it, but the stud appears to be labeled for battery charging only, I have never seen a generator set with a ground wire attached. Any help with clearing this up for me would be appreciated.

2. The owners manual says not to touch or operate the generator in the rain or if it is wet (May Cause Shock). The generators controls appear to be weatherproof, and does this mean if it is raining I can`t use the genny? It does not make sense to me and maybe I am reading this wrong. Again any help will be appreciated!!
