Asked by: Chuck
we tried to use this to power a 13,500 dometic on our rv. nope, tripped on overload. tried it on 2 more rv's with same results. funny thing, a commercial 15 amp 120v circuit powers the ac's fine. the starting current is a killer on small generator.

Does the unit come with a bottle or packet of oil?
Asked by: Jeff
No, they do not. If you are buying from an authorized Honda dealer they should either have the oil needed there, or they will prepare the unit for you with oil.

2,800-Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Industrial Inverter Generator with Eco-Throttle and Oil Alert is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 40.

With four outlets and many safety features I feel very confident plugging everything in my house to it. Being a Honda Inverter Generator was the main reason that I purchased this. One problem that I had was GAS LEAKING OUT. The first few weeks I smelled gas but was unsure where it was coming from. I carried the generator to an enclosed generator box and noticed that my pants had a little gas on them, again thinking that I had left the fuel valve open. After another week I carried it again and had gas pouring out the bottom. all over me. I was very sure that the gas valve was closed this time. Every time I tilted the generator very slightly gas would run out. The gas was coming out of the black cylinder at the bottom where the gas line enters at it's top. Gas would continue none stop as long as the generator was very slightly tilted. I returned this to Home Depot after six weeks and they gave me another one. The second one seems perfect.

There were 6 of them on the shelf. I noticed gasoline dripping from it at times. A few weeks later I got a recall letter from Honda stating that the carburetor was assembled wrong causing it to leak gas. I went to the local Honda dealer to have it fixed and they don't have the parts in yet, said they will call me when parts come in, meanwhile I've got a generator leaking gas. The dealer told me that the other units were pulled from the shelf and were not to be sold because of this. When I bought it the wheel kit was not available, now I see it for $166. and I really don't like it, because it's not retractable and costs too much. I would rather have bought a generator for a comparable price that already comes with a wheel kit. It runs good, but I am disappointed and expected more from Honda.
