We have the Honda eu2000 you will be very happy with it, I would say borrow one and see if it will start up your AC. Also i would not considr teh eu200 bulky its like carring a 5 gallon can of gas.

How are you securing the units to the swim platforms? Mine is a tube type, small cargo strap?

Could have saved a few bucks over Mayberrys if you had contacted me.

Keith, What Kind Of Rate For This Eu2000 And Is It Truly Safe To Run Off The Back Of The Boat For Overnighting. I Have Heard Several Horror Stories Of Carbon Monoxide. I Have Detectors But Just Wanted Your Safe Input. By The Way My 38zx Has Shore Power, Frig, Micro, Tv/vcr, And Ac/heat. My Frig And Tv/stereo Run On Dc But If I Had To Zap Something In The Micro In A Cove, Could This Size Gen. Handle The Power. Thanks Again.

Clay,

I have a Honda eu2000i that will run my MarineAir VCP-10K unit with no problem, even on eco-mode. I'm here on Lake Travis if you want to plug it in and see if it'll crank up yours. It'll also run my fridge and charger at the same time.

I strap it to the swim platform and run an adaptor right into the shore power. The boat thinks its at the dock. I have a couple of CO detectors and they never even see a whif as long as we're anchored bow into the wind.

I'm up at Dutchmans (now Easy Street). We're out almost every weekend weather permitting if you want to give it a try.

Thanks, Dave. I don't have an A/C unit (yet), so I don't need a generator right now. However, if you sell your boat, I would be interested in buying your Honda Eu2000i.
