Honda 2000i Runs but no Power

+/5 years old and this problems seems to be happening with more frequency. The unit starts and runs just fine but the green "power output" light is off and there is no power output. So, I turn it off and restart it and it produces power. Great.... but why is it doing this and I fear sometime it's just going to stop altogether. Several times I've had to stop/start 3-4X to get it to produce power. I'll likely just take it into a Honda dealer but in the meantime am curious what it going on.

RE: Opinion on Truck Reliability

If budget is an issue you're sure spending a lot of money for a diesel that you don't need to pull around an 8K travel trailer. Of course, all trucks are complicated these days but I think a diesel has more that can go wrong than a gasser. While you don't need a diesel you REALLY don't need a 3500 for that travel trailer. I understand all the arguments but, for whatever reason, SRW 3500 trucks are pretty hard to find. Also, with Ram the coil spring rear suspension is a noticeable improvement daily driving to the jarring leaf springs in the 3500. This difference is less noticeable with Ford/Chevy where both are leaf springs. If you're thinking of upgrading your trailer get the diesel and consider a 3500. For the trailer you have now a 2500 gasser is a great truck. The money you save going gas should get you into something newer... maybe even new.

RE: Ram 1500 at Load Maximum Woes

Curious how folks know the OP is not over/under his TV’s ratings... Because dirt bikes aren't made of foam :)

RE: T-Mobile Coverage

I've had Tmobile for the last 10+ years and within the last few years things have gotten far better than they used to be. I was regularly the butt of jokes from ATT/Verizon friends in the past but it's pretty much even now. Every carrier seems to have dead spots but I have no more than anyone else. For the money I'm very pleased with Tmobile.

RE: Norton Security

I don't understand how third party "security" software is still releveant. For the last 10+ years myself and everyone I know has been using the free/included offerings from MS/Windows (Defender or whatever they are calling it currently). It updates regularly with Windows updates and I haven't had a virus or other problems in longer than I can remember.

RE: Problem with B&W Companion unhooking from hitch

OP, my B/W has done this off and on since new. At first it was a bit annoying but I have got used to it. I just bungee the handle all the way open, rock forward/back VERY gently and pull out.

RE: Flojet macerator: is it reliable? Maintenance issues?

I absolutely love my Flojet macerator and it's been trouble free in the 3 years I've used it. The one thing I do make sure to do is each time I use it I reach down inside of it with a needle-nose pliers and remove hair and debris from around the blade. Like anything mechancial there always could be a problem so I do carry a backup "stinky slinky" but feel it's unlikely I'll ever need it. If a failure is a huge concern I think you can get a replacement motor to carry as a spare for roughly 1/2 what the full unit costs.

RE: Insurance on a 2021 Fifth Wheel

I go through Progressive and am very happy with price and coverage options. They have optional coverage for all types of things if you want - rodents, water intrusion, etc. and all of the usual things also.
mtofell1 12/21/20 02:55pm Fifth-Wheels

I have Firestone 5000 bags with a B/W Companion on a 6.5' bed 2500 2014 Ram with no problem. The hitch went in first and then I had the bags installed. They guy that installed them didn't say anything about any problems. I can't recall ever really looking at how close they are but I could snap some pictures if you need them.

RE: I take back all the good stuff I've said about Les Schwabs!

I just went through this EXACT thing with Schwab and am in the EXACT same boat as you.... I'm done. I've always paid a bit more for tires there and was find because of the service and all the locations. Especially for my wife's car it gave me some peace of mind. But this BS with their brakes just soured me. I took a Kia delivery vehicle in for my company and they wanted $700 for rear brakes. Took it to the DEALER and they did all 4 for $525. Sorry Schwab..... I'm out.

RE: New and confused

Agree with the Ram Megacab - 2500 is plenty of truck for that trailer though. 3500 wouldn't hurt but not necessary. Even without the Megacab the trucks have a lot of room in the backseat. I started RVing with 3 kids under 5 and a full size truck backseat is a lot of room. Plus it keeps them all, "within reach" :) :)
