2 generators on 1 transfer switch
So I'm researching generators ...(trying to get my mother secure as we're having more outages in the country)
Currently running Eu2000 to power tv/lights etc with cords under the house. It uses 1 gal every 8 hrs.
I'd like to power well pump/water heater/ etc every now and then... but I'd like the fuel savings of a Eu3000 etc.
Looking at Reliance Transfer Switch.
Option #1-Honda Eu6500is- uses more gas -only need 1 generator
Option #2 if it would work would be to use a Honda Eu3000 with a 125 plug into Transfer switch and then have another cheaper $1,000 generator for the 220. This would be best of both worlds. Now if Honda made a 4500 220 gen that sipped gas like the eu2000-I'd be in business.
Option 3- Run 2 reliance transfer switches
1 for 220 stuff
and 1 switch just for the 220 to run the eu3000 electric start
Is this possible? Does anyone do this. Can you post pics? If you have suggestions let me know!
I have a generally good understanding of electricity.
Do not plan on running all at same time.
If you need clarification-please ask!
