RE: Honda 2000 quiet box, I'm back!!

Thanks for the response. Soundown in on my list of options. What I am spending too much time on is trying to figure how the official Honda sound box and others use such small intake and exhaust? A combination of something to dampen the metal, mass loaded vinyl and duct board is effective but construction gets complicated. Plus duct board can be used to fabricate intake and exhaust baffles. Do not have an unlimited budget for this!! A "quiet" generator in an urban area is ok, in a wooded rural campsite is very loud!

RE: Honda 2000 quiet box, I'm back!!

Down to choosing materials. Rockwool 80 board seems to be a popular choice, I cannot find any near me for sale. So adds shipping, getting the cost up towards the $100 area for 1 package. Then need to add some type of sound deadener such as Blue skin and mass such as drywall. I have used duct board and blue skin before and is a contender, light, reasonably inexpensive, does not have the Db reduction of other options. But I am starting with a quiet generator. I can buy composit foam for $80 sheet, would need 2 and will be hard getting enough coverage from a 32X54 inch sheet. In the interest of economy I will be trying to use an aluminum box that is not tall enough and somehow modifying it to make it taller.

RE: Honda 2000 quiet box, I'm back!!

Thanks for the input greatly appreciated. The intake end of the generator is fairly simple and not the greatest source of noise. It is building a exhaust baffle in a limited amount of space and without spending a fortune. For the body of the generator I have done Composite foam with MLV and a lead floor and works very well. I have also done a sound deadener like Blue Skin for the metal box and 1" fiberglass duct board. It works well, not silent but good enough. Similar to what RaD did. 63 to 48 is very impressive even more so if the gen does not burn up! I need weather proof, secure, as light as possible and not break the bank. jaguston's did a great job with his but I cannot find the link. One person suspended the genset on rubber straps to stop vibration. Not practical for my application. The Japanese like to make springs for the feet of the genset. RaD did a good low cost job. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kuRd-ZPeaoQ https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/21111126/srt/pa/pging/1/page/1.cfm

Wish I could see how they designed the exhaust end of these box's https://youtu.be/8PwVfIwj8f0

Honda 2000 quiet box, I'm back!!

https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/28956619/srt/pa/pging/1/page/1.cfm Getting rid of the Toyota and bought a Roadtrek. First thing I did was take out the Onan and sell it. Starting a new box from scratch, reading the net and trying to gather as much info as I can before I take out the tools. I'm very fond of my collection of presidents pictures so the first consideration is to keep as many of them as I can. The composite foams are nice, I have used them before. So wondering about the newer mass loaded vinyl's. The composite foams are usually 1 inch think and the mass loaded vinyl are 1/8 to 1/4" thick.

Thanks for the responses, greatly appreciated. Looks similar my gas goes in the top same as the one showm but exits on the bottom into a specialty connector.

Hydro Flame Corp, Eversest Star Valve

94 Toyota SeaBreeze. I have a Hydro Flame FA 7916 with a leaking gas valve. The electrically controlled one in the furnace, that is leaking. I am having no luck finding a replacement valve . Anyone have any info on this, or suggest a replacement furnace?

RE: Making my onboard generator quieter

Sleeping in an RV with a vacuum cleaner cooling it, powered by a lawn mower underneath is not my idea of glamping. Been using a Honda 2000 forever and now have an LG 9500 dual inverter cooling my Roadtrek.

RE: Proud of my Costco cheap Firman Gen

Don't be real impressed. I had a cheap junk generator that the ethanol gas was left sitting in and had to soak the non rebuild able carb for 24 hours in the hopes it would work again. I hate Onan's.

RE: EEZ reading wrong

When I got my first TPMS it left me at a loss. I had no idea properly inflated tires psi could be all over the place. To make it worse it was an inaccurate cheap unit. I do not know what changed but yesterday the monitor was not showing the same psi that was in the tires, today they are spot on!

RE: EEZ reading wrong

Tanks for the responses, greatly appreciated. Color me confused. Van has been sitting since yesterday. PSI is not what I set it too yesterday I checked pressure all 4 tires with monitor in my hand. Monitor is showing same pressure as tire gauge. I can live with this.

RE: EEZ reading wrong

Good point, I will have to tinker with this today. Pulled 2 sensors and only one is showing the correct psi on the monitor.

EEZ reading wrong

EEZ 518C with 4 sensors I put my Roadtrek in storage for about 2 months and removed the system brought it home. Sitting in driveway with cold tires, Inflate rear tires to 80 psi and front tires to 55 psi. Monitor is showing 49 and 51 front tires 74 and 76 rear tires. There is no way I am losing that much psi putting the sensors on the stem. I would never call this system 100% accurate but have not seen it this far off before, I also took it for a ride psi raised as expected but still off. Before you ask, I have a high quality dual foot inflator with oil filled gauge verified with a cheap Slime pressure gauge. Looked all over the net for what is wrong and see nothing, nothing in the manual either?

RE: Running portable generator off vehicle fuel tank.

Interesting setup with the predator. Youngster seems to have put a lot of thought into it, yet he did not pull fuel directly from the vehicle tank. Wonder what his thinking was?? Is he old enough to drive?? LOL

RE: Running portable generator off vehicle fuel tank.

I am not a mechanic, the only experience I had was when I had my gas tank cleaned and lined. I had the tank bolted in and most of the hoses hooked up. Took a break and when I came back out gas was coming out of one of the small lines that was not hooked up. I removed the gas cap releasing the pressure and the gas stopped flowing. I had put about 5 gallons of gas in the tank to check for leaks.

RE: Running portable generator off vehicle fuel tank.

I have used the external tank for years. My concern is the vehicle fuel system is pressurized, would it push fuel through the Honda? Just does not sound right.

Running portable generator off vehicle fuel tank.

On another forum someone posted about running a Honda EU2200i off the original fuel line from the removed Onan. I have been using the mighty little Honda forever and never heard of tapping into the vehicle fuel supply. Does not seem right? Any input on this.
