The Hondas are probably the most common off roader camp generator you see.
Our Honda eu2000 was bought at least 14 years ago and was fantastic.
Banged around the back of our truck and boat deck, slammed into everything in every situation, a great generator, never an issue.
I changed the oil each week of running time and that was countless times.
1000s of hours of run time. Relentless operation.
Finally the dreaded crankcase oil seal leak became unmanageable and we bought the eu2200.
The eu2200 most definitely did the job better suiting our needs. More robust crankcase oil seals we read someplace.
But soon a simple bump cracked the case.
So I swapped the damage part with the old part off the eu2000 that’s in my bone yard.
The eu2000 part definitely more durable. Not as brittle, a more flexible and forgiving plastic and I saved $50 plus tax and shipping for the OEM part.
So handle your eu2200 with care. Made out of potato chip material.
