Will the Honda EU20i run the IBIS 3 Air Conditioner?

We get a lot of questions here at the Generator Place, probably one of the most asked questions is if the Honda EU20i runs the IBIS 3 air-conditioner, and today, we will be answering that question.

To keep it simple, the answer is yes. It runs an IBIS 3 air-conditioner. In fact, we offer a money-back guarantee that it will. Let us show you how.

To start off, we always recommend having your generator of the economy mode when you start your IBIS 3. You’ll know that your battery charge is turned off if it’s not drawing any power.

A lot of vans come fitted with a water heater. So just make sure that that’s in the off position as well.

After checking everything, allow the air conditioner to cool down the van for a few minutes.

Once your van is cool enough, you can now start to run your other appliances like the fridge, TV, lights, video, etc.

We just don’t recommend running the microwave and the air conditioner at the same time. If you have to use one of them, make sure the other one is turned off.

How do you measure the draw in your van?

You can use our Power-Mate 15amp Meter to measure. It’s used for measuring the power consumption of larger 15 amp appliances. They are very handy and easy to use.

To use, simply plug it into the generator and then plug your lead straight into the power meter.

The meter can tell you a variety of measurements including power in watts, voltage and current. It can also tell you the minimum, maximum as well as instantaneous readings.

The meter can also tell you: cost of running the appliance, how much energy the appliance used in kilowatt-hours and how many kilograms of greenhouse gas emissions it produced. All in hourly, yearly, quarterly and accumulated figures.

A lot of people make the mistake of having a long poorly insulated lead but you can actually get a lot of voltage drop that way.

What we recommend is for you to use this 20 amp insulated lead which is four meters long and gives you the optimum results. It’s short length to reduce power loss through the cable maximising the Generators power into the caravan

If you’d like something with a little bit more power, then this handy Honda EU30i is perfect for you. It’s got 50% more power than the EU20i, which means it runs at less of its capacity and runs a little bit quieter.

So once again, the Honda EU20i got you covered.
