I use the EU3000 with the optional wheel kit. Rolls around easy and fits right at the back door in the 276 tied off with 4 ratchet straps to keep it from rolling around. We don't use it much but still carry it every trip as back up. Have not ran it with AC on and microwave at same time but I already knew the ac would need to be cut off. Our old coachmen blast 150 had a 11,000 AC and the EU3000 would run the AC and microbe at the same time.

Wonderful generator and I use it at home when we have power outages to keep two refrigerators running. Excellent fuel economy on the thing.

Picture of how I store it behind the motorcycles in the 276.


Very easy to load and unload and it doesn't get in the way where its at. Everything rides in place and looks just like this after a 500 mile trip. Plus the weight is on the extreme tail of the hauler. I carry the extra gas can(s) in the bed of my truck.

we opted for 2000 and companion along with extended run thank and it will run GENs no problem we get about 12 hours, more than enough. Opted for the 2000 since 0rice for 2 was about that of 3000, lighter and get more power and use only one when needed

Honda also has the tri fuel kit so the generators can run on propane.....but don't know how long on how much propane?

http://www.generatorsales.com/order/...i_Tri_Fuel_Kit

Anyone have this set-up and how does it work out?

Edit to add I found a fuel consumption chart for the eu3000i and the difference between gasoline and propane is near nil.

Also, there are extended run fuel tanks with dual discharge hoses so one tank will feed two generators.

Can the 3000 fit on the front rack of the trailer or not ? And if it can is it a safe spot to leave it there while running all night , thanks

I don't think so. Its way wider than that tray up front on tongue.
