I have previously used a Friends Honda 2000 generator, and Loved how easy it was to Operate.

The only thing I regret is not Buying mine sooner. I purchased the Honda 2200I,And out of box, just add fuel and Oil.2 Things I recommend.

1.Get some Carb Starting Fluid, remove the Air cleaner cover, remove the foam, you will see there is a smaller foam at the bottom, leave the smaller foam in place just spray 2 small sprays right into that small foam, This is just to help the first start, and if it sits for awhile, you should not spray before every start. These Honda's start right up every time. Replace the larger foam, put cover back on, DO NOT over tighten the screws for this cover and the outer cover, just get the screw's snug.

2. You should always use Honda Oil 10w30.You might not think this is important, but if something goes wrong with it, I was told they will test the Oil, and if you used any other brand of oil, the Warranty will be voided. When filling the Oil, do not over fill the oil, get a small funnel, and put the oil in slow. Mine took about 13 ounces. You will know it is full when the oil is at the first outer thread where the cap screws in. Let run for about 30 minutes before you plug anything into it. I highly recommend to change the oil after you let it brake in, this helps get any medal shavings out,and gives it fresh oil. 

You can save a little bit of Money buying a different brand, but the old saying is you pay for what you get.

How quiet, and how easy this is to operate is worth it, trust me. 

Read Manual before starting, this will save you a lot of trouble.

There is video's on the Internet to show you these helpful hints.

Very happy with my Honda Generator. Enjoy yours!

We just ended 44 hours w/o grid power due to a PGE hi-fire prevention outage in far-northern Ca. I already owned a EU2000i generator and had used it last year when the Carr Fire was raging and we had no power. We ran the bare necessities at the time and could have run more had I known it's capabilities. It really made a huge difference with our ability to "survive" with internet and the information we relied upon to get through it. 

Fast forward to Oct. 2019 when we knew the above planned power outage was coming the day before. I made it to the Honda dealer when they opened and managed to snag one of the last EU2200i Companion gens they had. Fortunately, my EU2000i gen worked w/ the newer EU2200i companion generator (vin # was good). With the series cable connection, we were able to produce a duty cycle of 3800 watts (more w/ two EU2200is gens), which was enough to power the following: internet/satelite modem/router, 65" tv and receiver, couple of lamps, fridge and old freezer and microwave (when we unplugged the old freezer with the microwave running). 

In 44 hours, we used about four gallons of gasoline to run them 12hrs/day. We had proper sized extension cords which was very important (retired contractor). Obviously, we had several cords running across the floor, but that is kind of a first-world problem imo. The only glitch I had (gens shut off) was not understanding that the Japanese apparently think that turning the vents for the fuel tank should turn in the opposite direction than I did. Once this was sorted, everything ran 100%. 

My take away is this: you could buy the delicious EU3000is gen w/ electric start and quiet running that gives you 2600w continuous or you could own two of these for about the same price and have 1400 more watts of effective (continuous) power. I have checked my Db meter and they are pretty much the same. 

The other plus on the twins was that I was able to split them during the daytime and do a remote power up for another computer bank I own in a remote location. These are Honda machines, so if you maintain them (important), they will start every time and give you clean power. When you store them, buy some non-ethanol gas (look it up) and be secure. Hope this helps.

We were using an older 1000 watt Honda, and decided to buy a 2200i.

The 1000 watt has a fuel level indicator, 2200i does not. :(

1000 watt weights 64 lbs. new one is 46 lbs. much lighter :) 

Eco mode on 2200i works well, reduces noise and fuel consumption while still powering up house refrigerator and garage freezer plus a few lights with no changes in eco idle speed.

over all a good portable unit, but a fuel gauge would be a plus..

Purchased to use for RV camping off grid as well as tailgating at college football games. Runs quiet which is good at tailgates since we will be doing overnight and will need AC early in the season. I am sure they will run longer when a RV AC unit isn't running. But I got 5.5 hours out of the two connected. Not running AC I am sure they will go longer. I did purchase a marine style gas can (6 gallons) that feeds both units and should last through the night with everything in the 35 foot RV on. :)

I bought the EU2200i Companion to go with EU2209i. One of them would perhaps run my 13,500 btu rooftop A/C on low cool but it would be maxed out or possibly abused. I thought it would be better to spend my money on the companion rather than on repair bills. And I don't want to have to turn off the A/C to cook my dinner. Am not saying that a person couldn't get away with just one though. At 75F outside and 85F in the camper it took 17.2 amps to start the A/C and it ran at 11.6 amps.  Cooled down my 6 X 14 x 6.5 trailer from 85 to 70 in 10 minutes. I am completly happy with my purchase and do not anticipate any problems.   The only thing I might say is when you start them for the first time just turn the gas on and open the cap vent and then go take a 15 minute break while the gas gets to the carburator. Then it will start right up.

 I purchased my generator at the Camping World store on Broadway in Edmond OK and was pressed for time due to the recent September 19/20th, 2018 rain storm that severely damaged two brand new Honda 2200i's I had purchased at a local Home Depot the day before the excessive rain storm - they had no others but Camper World advised that they had a new shipment. Home Depot did refund 100% of the purchase price. I asked Camper World to service two generators while I was en-route to pick them up - which they did with some delay when they gave another RV Customer priority. Anyway, when I ran the generators they that evening they seemed to work fine, although one took 8-10 pulls to start. An hour or so later I went outside to check the generators - one was putting out dense white smoke as if it was burning oil. The smoking slowed down after a while but did not stop altogether so I turned that generator off. Did not need parallell power from both because I was not running the 5th Wheel AC.  We needed to depart for Arizona the next day so I did not have time or the inclination to drive 25 miles out of my way to have the Camper World folks look at the generator. Did not use either generator on the trip home. Drained fuel after arriving home and only used one or the other generator for about 3 hours per month until February 2019. Set them up by checking oil, refueling, etc while at the Copperstate Fly-In, Buckeye AZ to provide power for the 5th wheel. While setting them up I noticed that one had a large amount of excessive oil "gushing out" when I opened the Oil Dip Stick/Filler cap. Drained the oil, did not use it for a day and then fired it up. Seemed to work fine for 5-6 hours and then "sounded funny" so I shut it off and drained everything and prepped it for storage as per the manuals instructions. Knowing I would need it this weekend I took it to the Tucson AZ Camper World where the service/parts man spent a good deal of time checking out and running both generators. They both seemed fine so he suggested I take them home and run them for a half hour or so, shut them down and change the oil. If the suspect generator started smoking again he recommended I bring it in for potential warranty work - which I will do if necessary.

Bottom line - make sure you double check whomever initially or subsequently services your generator. They can easily, as they did at the Edmond OK Camper World, over fill with oil - potentially destroying your brand new generator. I believe that I am and was lucky because I did not run this very tough and easy to use generator for any length of time - as did the very knowledgeable Tucson Camper World Service/Parts person. If you ever stop by the Tucson AZ Camper World Parts/Service Desk ask to speak to the retired U.S. Coast Guard Chief - he knows his stuff and enjoys helping his customers.

Always check and re-check dealer maintenance and work, just like one should do with their vehicle. It is amazing how often they make mistakes - especially ones that can ruin your day and empty your pocketbook.

I appreciate that Honda makes a very tough generator.

I could have bought cheaper, but at my age I want ease & simplicity. I bought both Eu2200i & Companion to run my med Toy Hauler trailer, I bring both but usually only run one unless Im running the A/C. At 50lbs each they are easy to move around and store back home when complete. It has really clean power especially when im using my lap top, new electronics need clean juice. Love the ECO switch and I was going to put a fuel cut-off switch in to run the carbs out but these models come w/ it Factory. With 30 day gas here in Ca, you need to run Stabil in all fuels that sit and run the gas out of the carbs. I will be adding an Hour meter on both units for maintenance and curiosity reasons. You'd be surprised how fast the hours can accumulate and simple service will keep these running for decades...

I bought my generator for the express purpose of running heaters and lights on a Colorado elk hunt.  On the first night, the generator quit running at 11pm after about 5 hours of running. Tried it again the second night and it ran for 1 hour, then quit.  The next morning the generator would not start. We quit trying to use the generator for the remaining 4 nights.  I might add that we were tent camping in the snow with night time temps of 15 degrees to 7 degrees. In addition, we had a barrel of water which I took heat lamps to keep the water thawed.  The last night we had to melt snow inside the tent to get enough water for our horses. At 10pm we finally had enough.

Needless to say our nights were quite uncomfortable and had it not been for some "old backups" such as Colman lantern and stove, as well as a small cooking unit run off a 1lb bottle of propane, we would have been in serious trouble. We did have a titanium packers stove which required feeding the fire every 1 to 2 hours.

After getting home in Texas, I started and ran the generator with attached heater for 18 hours without interruption. I do not know what the problem was in Colorado where I needed it most. I am extremely hesitant to take it again under high altitude and cold conditions as it may leave me scrambling for fire wood and my Coleman backup units again. Quite disappointing for a brand new unit that I had extremely high hopes for. The altitude we were at was 8000 to 9000 feet.

Until I find out what went wrong, I can not recommend a Honda generator. I bought based on the supreme reputation of the generator, but how can I have any confidence in the unit on another mountain trip? Any help would be appreciated.

Great Features and as I expected it will run my 13,500 btu AC on my camper. However I do not recommend running for long periods in hot weather without paralleling to another Honda. It did do fine and did not overload at all. I ran it for short periods just to keep my camper cool and had no issues

I was able to speak to a Honda representative on site at Camping world tent at Talledega. His response to running the AC on just 1 generator over time without paralleling will wear out the stator. Overall Completely satisfied with my first use of this generator. No complaints.

Dependable Power When It Counts

Simple, durable, and dependable... We had some big storms roll through on Monday night (10/1/2018) causing power outages throughout the neighborhood. Myself and a neighbor rely on sump pumps to keep groundwater at bay. My open frame brand X construction generator failed to start so I quickly went out looking for a new generator. I've had my eye on the Honda Eu2200i Companion for a few months for camping but the failure of my old brand X generator finally nudged me into pulling the trigger on this Honda.

Gas, oil, pull the rope and the new Honda was off to the races... thanks to this little guy we saved two homes from water damaged basements in one night. Sure there are cheaper options out there but when the water's rising and every minute counts I want a product that I can believe in not something that I have to tinker with.

Oh the joy of buying!

Check compatibility prior to purchase. Some units may cause damage, dealer was not aware.

Units run well, provide for power needs for RV when run in parallel. Started first pull, quiet reliable.

I have owned many small engine tools and this one is most complicated to start. The choke label on it is misleading. If you move the handle to under the word "choke", it opens it. Just label "Open" on one end and "close" on the other will be better. Next you need to switch the Eco switch to "Off" to enable cold start, then turn Engine switch "on". If you did not correctly perform the first 2 steps it wont start.  Once it starts, it runs well and quiet in the Eco mode. I like it's portability so I can store it inside and take it to my shack outside for actual usage. My old generator rusted badly and died in the shack is why I bought this replacement. I have a lawn mover and snow thrower with Honda Engines which are reliable. Wife complained I paid $1,000 for this when she saw similar output power generators cost $ 250 at BJ. My answer is peace of mind when there is power outage during winter storms I need a super reliable generator to keep my house warm and can cook hot meals.

Purchased 2 honda EU2200 companion generators running parallel. One of the generators has not ran properly since I have had it. Took it to Camping World 0n 8/23/2018. Was charged $203 (approx.) to tell the carburetor was gummed up. I have take extremely good care of these generator. I was told I needed a new carburetor. I could have told them that. The tech did NOT clean the carburetor. Simply noted need a new carburetor and that Honda did not warranty the carburetor. I have given Camping World a lot of business. After all I purchased a Travel Trailer. If Honda doesn't warranty I would have thought Camping World would have made some type of compensate. I will not do business with them in the future. P.S. the generators will NOT run all appliances in my trailer. Can only run one at time. Turn the A/C off if you want to run the microwave or the refrigerator, or the TV .

Not a happy camper.

I'm just getting started, and have never owned a generator before, but this Honda was super easy to set up, easy to fuel, easy to start, quiet, very fuel efficient, and I know it's going to last forever. I couldn't be more satisfied.  I should add that the user manual is very comprehensive and well-written.

Very quiet generator.  Wished the 3000W was a little smaller but the 2200 does the trick.

I bought an EU2000i for my inlaws years ago in case of a hurricane black out. Used it several times camping and tailgating at football games, always great. Then we needed it for a hurricane, and by itself it was struggling to keep freezer, fridge, lamps, fans, and TV going. So I added a Companion today. Now I can run all that plus a 10,000BTU AC and its running about 60% power together. I have room to add load now. These little generator are the best you can buy. Take good care of them and they start first pull every time.

I rented multiple generators before my purchase... Hands down the Honda was the best product of the bunch. I use it in areas which sound(noise) is really important to my clients. Also the first pull it always starts no hesitation or delays.

Purchased a pair of EU2200I generators to power my travel trailer. Generators are light easy to use and run my travel trailer with a 15000 btu air conditioner in ECO mode with no problem. Only negative is fuel tank size, there are some after market fuel extenders (auxiliary tanks) available, but wish Honda would come out with a reliable system of their own. Getting up in the middle of the night to refuel is no fun!!!!

I purchased a Companion generator and the connecting cables, but didn't realize it requires a circular 30amp plug.  I have the flat 3 prong plug which is usless.  Consequently unable to utilize the generator for two days until Camping World opens .  

We are in Henderson, NV with 100° heat and no air conditioning.  It would have been nice if the sa all es clerk had brought it to my attention.  The plugs are not available it any "Big box" stores in this area.

On a positive note, the new generator is quiet and runs smoothly.  Looking forward to being zble to use it .

great for a back up
