I was sent a few pages from the service
manual showing the test procedures.
Everything seemed to be OK.
I went to the Honda shop in Marsh Harbor. He suggested bad connections/corrosion.
He also said he does not stock parts due to the high duty and shipping
I checked many of the connections I could see and found no corrosion
. I pulled the end of the generator off, the end where the plugs are. The inverter is behind the control panel
where the outlets are.
The output wires of the inverter are there on the back side. One of the wires could be wiggled fairly easy. So I pulled the clip off and inspected the connection. It was clean with no corrosion
. BUT, the connector was not like any I've seen before. Usually there is some sort of male/female contact. This was a sort of male/male connection. The wire was able to lift
off the inverter end of the male plug just slightly causing an air gap. I wrapped some electrical
tape around the wire and stretched it tight down to the base of the plug on the inverter. This held the two male connectors together.
Output normal, problem fixed...for now. If the heat slackens the electrical
tape it may disconnect again. When I get back to USA I can replace the connector if necessary.
Thanks all for the help.
This is for the Companion version with the 30 amp twist lock plug. Don't know if the other 2000i is the same...
