Additional Information
Operate a wide variety of appliances in your RV or at your campsite with help of Honda's EU3000i Handi Portable Generator. At max output, the Handi has the power to start and run a 13,500 BTU air conditioner, power kitchen appliances, operate computers and electronics, or charge DC batteries. The generator ignites with an easy-to-use recoil start; simply switch it on and pull the cord for reliable starting every time. Economical to operate, this generator runs almost 8 hours at 1/4 load on a tank of gas. Eco-Throttle technology extends run time and fuel consumption based on demand. Quieter than most vacuum cleaners, even at full load, the EU3000i Handi Portable Generator operates at a super-quiet 57-65 dBA.

Advanced inverter technology provides stable power to computers and other sensitive equipment. The generator is protected by Oil Alert for safe, efficient use. Built-in convenience features include a recessed light for after-dark operation, easy access oil maintenance, LED output/warning indicator lights, and built-in parallel ports. The EU3000i Handi Portable Generator's compact design takes up less storage space in an RV, tow vehicle, or home garage. Closeable fuel vent for safer transport. Not only is the EU3000i Handi lightweight, but an innovative offset handle makes for easier lifting, in addition to two fixed handles for convenient loading. If you need more power, add a second EU3000i Handi with ease; two identical models can be paralleled with an optional cable or cord for up to 4000W of power. Manufacturer 3-year limited warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless Had to use my EU3000i for the first time recently.  Only needed to power some lights for painting (local power company did not transfer power to new owner in time for us to paint).  Wow, so quiet, so easy to set up, and it ran flawlessly nightly while we painted for a few hours after work.  This generator was a real life saver for us.  Handles made it easy to haul in my Prius (yes it easily is handled by one person).  I'm totally sold on the quality...and did I mention how whisper quiet this thing is...with Honda generators.  I'll never want anything other than a Honda generator.  Thanks Honda!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it This generator does everything I need it to do. Starts so easy. 1 pull Everytime. It run my AC with ease. I do have a soft start on it so I know that helps. Used it at the ball park when the heat index was 108 and it didn't miss a beat. The only negative is the plastic housing is a little fragile. It did get a little crack in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Camping and house backup I love this machine, for the output size, it is light and is amazingly easy to start. Used it during a snow storm that knocked out the house power. It never gave us problems. I quickly modified the wiring on the house furnace to interface with the generator chord. (don't do this unless you know what you are doing.) The furnace kept the house warm for about 24 hours until the power company fixed the overhead wiring into the house from the power pole. We also used it to run the refridgerator and deep freeze and some lights. Great Machine. Also used it for my RV when an electrical campsite was not available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy Im by myself when camping at horse shows so it's important to be able to lift this and it can be done alone. Love the wheels. It only goes for barely 5 hours with AC on low in the horse trailer. Very disappointed in running time and it isn't as quiet as people are reporting. I can even hear it throttle down while I'm in trailer. I do however need to try the Eco Throttle for longer running time but wasn't sure how that would effect power needed for AC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best running generator... My husband & I purchased 2 Honda EU3000i Handi generators to use with our Keystone Cougar at Pendleton Roundup this year.  We stayed at a grade school "dry camp"  we were so pleased at the ease of operation and the fact that they were SO quiet, and we never bothered anyone next to us.  everyone who came by and saw and heard them "purr" were taken with them and talked about buying them for their own use.  Thank you for such a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 6th year of operation Starting my 7th year of camping in Key West, FL. Have to rotate 2wks full hookup and 2-3 wks dry camping.  My Handi 3000 has never let me down, Runs my 15000 BTU a/c without problems. Have to shut off a/c to run coffee pot or microwave but turn it back on afterwards, Even runs the wife's hairdryer and that does make it yell!!  Still, at full load, quieter than all other gens.  Once a year it goes to the dealer for routine service.  Runs about 11 hours a day for up to 3 weeks.  Couldn't ask for anything better.  As I said before, it has never let me down.  What more can you ask for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from RV Emergency Generator I have a 5th wheel RV and bought this unit for dry camping and mainly for emergencies. First time I started it, it cranked up on the 2nd pull. It ran smooth and was very quiet. My RV has a 30 amp circuit. Using solely the generator, I ran the refrigerator, air-conditioning and lights. Unfortunately, when I added the micro-wave, it tripped on overload. I will either have to turn off the A/C when I want to use the micro-wave or buy another 3000 handy or perhaps go to 2 - 2000 units. Regardless I definitely recommend this unit based on the very limited experience I have with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Came in Handi Santa Ana winds combined with fire and our electricity provider proactively shut down our power. This happened on three occasions within a weeks time. Forecast called for at least a week and a half of winds off and on. I purchased the Handi EU3001 during the first power shutdown and it worked great. I ran two refrigerators, a couple of plug in lights and a coffee pot for the morning coffee. Cell phones were also charged up and ready to go.I ran it for 10 hours straight and then topped off the fuel tank for another round. In all, we lost power for 36-48 hours on three separate occasions. This thing is quiet and easy to move.Originally I was looking to purchase the EU3000is, but there was a run on generators here locally and could not find it in any building supply stores. I checked a local marine supply store and they had 3 Handi3000i but none of the EU3000is. I’m glad i went with the one I did because the other one is quite a bit heavier and you have to buy a wheel kit for it to make it easier to move.Long story short, it works great.

What is carb compliant

Asked by: Kwazymama
CARB is short for California Air Resources Board. Products that have an internal combustion engine(like generators and cars) have to follow an additional set of CARB regulations to be able to be sold and used in the state of California. CARB compliant generators can be shipped to California while units that are not CARB compliant cannot. CARB compliant generators are sometimes referred as "50 State" generators and non-CARB compliant generators as "49 state" units.

Can you convert to propane

Asked by: Camper
We have a tri-fuel conversion kit compatible with this generator listed as SKU# 91840. Keep in mind that Honda does not offer any official conversion kits. Also you will have to modify the case of the EU3000i to run a fuel tube from the provided regulator as well as to mount said regulator.

can you connect a 2000 watt generator to this one?

Asked by: Anonymous
Not recommended, no. Using two generators with different ratings will cause the power to be out of phase.
