I do not believe this model of Xantrex I/C can be current limited or de-rated specifically on the charge side, like some other models can. Ideally you would have the option to de-rate the charge side to 60A or so in order to run it off a genset. I believe that unit can be set for reduced power share and that may solve your problem.

Very helpful hint to control generators and 20A shorepower

If you have the Link. Don't know otherwise, but it's the concept if you can make it happen. Don't know if you knew it existed before Maine Sail mentioned it.

Good luck.

Re: Honda 2000 Generator

generally most inverter / chargers can be set for the shore size. if you set it to 15a instead of 30 it should work. if you have that option. it'll just limit the charge current.
