Ok, here is my take on it.I could almost run every peice of equipment I have on my boat and start the AC with it.I had a 2.3amp water pump also for my AC..not even necesary so next time it will be a 1.0 amp.I'll have even more to handle
It ran the AC and microwave...what it wouldn't handle was the AC AND wtaer heater...couldn't keep up.Then again I leave it in ECO-mode.

I ran it for several hours before my water pump gave up the ghost..seperate issue but with the AC/charger/lights/neon fixtures/fridge it had no problems in ECO-mode.The AC starting up moves the AMP meter pretty good but never trips it under normal circumstances.

If it did all ya gotta do is literally run the ON/OFF switch for just a second and it resets on the Genny.

I took 4 rubber straps(large 30") and wrapped the handle of the Honda and hung it from my pulpit.keeps the vibration to a minimum.You would have to have everything off in order to hear the genny running.With the AC on it wasn't audible.

In fact after the AC starts up it idles down a good bit.

Kieth gives a helluva deal I couldn't come close to here in town.Not to mention it was here the next day.

The Honda VS. the knock off have one major difference I can see right off the bat....the cases of the Honda motor are coated.The other yellow brand is not.Think about it.

Is it leaking out the clear vent tube on the side of the case? If so then you it is leaking out of the bottom of the carburetor. Was it new when purchased?

Honda EU 2000 runs my 5500 BTU window unit.. You can get them on line for $800-900. Quiet, runs all night on a fill up.
