Powerful, Portable Generator

e2000 outlets

The e2000 etrailer inverter generator packs 2,000 watts of clean AC power to get you up and running whether you're at the campsite, worksite, or tailgate party. This powerful generator comes with (1) 120V outlet for powering household appliances, tools, and electronic devices. It also features (1) 120V L5-30R twist-lock outlet for large appliances and motorized tools with greater electrical demands. Lastly, it includes (1) 5V USB outlet to charge cell phones, tablets, and other portable electronics.


e2000 RV adapter

As an added convenience, the e2000 also features a TT-30R adapter that lets you plug your RV into the generator's 120V 30-Amp L5-30R twist-lock outlet. This ensures you'll have access to electricity no matter where you take your RV or if there's a power outage at the campground.


e2000 carry handle in use

Finally, this compact unit weighs only 45 lbs and has a built-in ergonomic handle, making it easy to take with you no matter where you go.


Safe for Sensitive Electronic Devices

e2000 safe for cell phones

Electronic devices are made with delicate circuitry that requires steady, controlled electrical current. The electrical current produced by standard generators, however, is uncontrolled, allowing extreme fluctuations in power. And these fluctuations can easily damage your sensitive electronic devices.


This generator, on the other hand, has a built-in inverter that controls the voltage that is produced. This important feature ensures the generator is safe to use with your electronic equipment such as cell phones, computers and medical devices.


Easy-Start Engine

This generator features a comfort grip recoil pull handle that provides easy manual startup. It uses standard unleaded gas, meaning there is no need to mix gas and oil.


Before starting your generator, ensure nothing is connected to the outlets. Start your generator and let the engine run for a few minutes to warm up and stabilize. Check to make sure the circuit breaker is in on position before continuing. Once the generator is up and running, you may connect your electrical loads. To follow the recommended order of operation, connect the device with the highest starting watts first, like your air conditioner or refrigerator, and work your way down to the device with the lowest starting watts. By connecting devices in this order, you can make the most of your generator's capacity through connecting high wattage loads when there is more power available.


Built-in Parallel Ability

e2000 parallel

The e2000 has built-in parallel capability letting you to pair it with any etrailer inverter generator for increased power output. Simply plug the included cables into the corresponding parallel ports on each generator's control panel.


e2000 parallel ports

You can pair it directly with another 2,000 watt generator (333-0001 - sold separately) to increase power output to 3,800 watts. Additionally, it can pair with a 3,200 watt generator (333-0002 or 333-0003 sold separately) to increase power output to 4,900 watts. By increasing the power output, you can run equipment with higher electrical demands.


Economy Mode Provides Fuel Efficiency

e2000 eco mode

With the flip of a switch, you can activate the generator's economy mode feature. This mode adjusts engine speed to match the power demands of your connected devices. When using low-draw devices like tablets, cell phones, televisions, and radios, the engine runs more efficiently to save fuel and keeps noise to a minimum. The engine only runs at normal speed when additional power is needed. For example, when using a power tool, the engine will only speed up when the device is actively being used. This mode is not only kinder to your pocketbook and your ears, it's also easier on the environment.


Safety Features

e2000 safety lights

This generator comes with a number of safety features that protect both you and the generator itself. The control panel contains two warning lights indicating low oil and overloading. When the engine is low on oil, it will automatically shut down to prevent damage. If an overload is detected, either by exceeding the generator's limits or a power surge, the circuit breaker will stop supplying power to the connected devices. A built-in spark arrester helps prevent any sparking that might burn someone or start a fire, protecting both you and the environment. This arrester has been certified by the USDA Forest Service. Also, a digital voltage regulator assists in minimizing voltage fluctuations which helps to maintain a steady flow of electricity.


Choosing a Generator

To choose a generator that meets your needs, you must match the size of the generator (that is, the starting output and running output in watts) with the electrical demands of the equipment that you want to operate.


Power Demands

Starting (surge) wattage is the power a device requires at startup. Running (rated) wattage is the power needed to keep the device running. A large appliance with an electric motor such as a furnace, refrigerator, air conditioner, or washing machine may require 2 to 3 times more starting wattage than running wattage.


It is always best to start your generator with no load connected, then add each device one at a time. Additionally, a good practice to consider is connecting your devices in order from highest starting watts to lowest starting watts. As you connect and start devices, your available wattage decreases. This order of operation allows you to start devices with the highest power demands when there is more power available.


Will This Generator Run My RV Air Conditioner?

At etrailer, we perform numerous tests on generators to put them through real-world experience. An extensive part of this testing includes starting and running RV air conditioners. The following table will help you decide if the e2000 inverter generator has enough power to handle this critical function in your RV.

* The starting wattage on air conditioners can vary greatly depending on several factors, including the assistance of built-in capacitors and cold starts. Because of this, we can't list a standard starting wattage as every application can be different.


Determining Your Power Needs

When choosing a generator, knowing the amount of power you will need is crucial to your decision. Whether you are preparing for an emergency situation at home or taking a weekend trip in the RV, planning out your application is essential. The two calculations below provide power estimations that will help point you to a generator that is right for your needs.


Industry Standard Calculation

The Industry Standard Calculation is a quick and easy way to determine your required wattage. It may provide some padding in your wattage requirements, which could give you more power than you actually need, but you shouldn't have to worry about not having enough power. The following steps will help you quickly calculate the correct size generator to meet your application.


As stated earlier, you should always start your generator without any load, and then connect each device one at a time. The following calculation requires this approach to work. However, using this calculation removes the worry of connecting devices in a certain order.


1. Determine the starting watts and running watts for the devices that you want to plug into the generator.

a. Find the starting (surge) watts and running (rated) watts for each device that you want to plug into the generator. Look for a sticker or plate on each device or check your owner's manuals.

b. If your device or manual only shows amps and volts, watts can also be determined through a simple formula. (Amps x Volts = Watts)

c. List all of your starting watts and running watts as seen in Table 1 below.


Table 1

Example DevicesStarting WattsRunning Watts
Air compressor2,0001,000
Refrigerator1,600800
Microwave01,000
Blender850400

2. To find the total starting watts required, add the starting watts for the device with the highest value to the running watts of all the other devices from Table 1.


2,000 + 800 + 1,000 + 400 = 4,200 total starting watts


3. To find the total running watts, add all of the running watts together from Table 1.


1,000 + 800 + 1,000 + 400 = 3,200 total running watts


To run all of these devices simultaneously, you would require a generator with at least 4,200 starting watts and 3,200 running watts.


Advanced Precise Calculation

While the method for calculating your power needs outlined above will work, it isn't the most precise. If you aren't afraid of doing a little more math, you can use the Advanced Precise Calculation to get a more accurate idea of how much power you will need and potentially save yourself some money. Because the calculation above pads in enough power to ensure you can start your devices in any order, it may point you to a bigger and more expensive generator than you need. However, by following the more regimented, order-of-operations calculation below, you'll get a much more precise idea of how much power you need, which could in turn point you to a smaller and less expensive generator.


Again, you should always start your generator without any load, and then connect each device one at a time. The following calculation also requires that you start your devices in order from highest starting watts to lowest starting watts. When you connect devices in this order, you can start high demand devices when there is more power available.


1. Determine the starting watts and running watts for each device that you want to plug into the generator.

a. Find the starting (surge) watts and running (rated) watts for each device that you want to plug into the generator. Look for a sticker or plate on each device or check your owner's manuals.

b. If your device or manual only shows amps and volts, watts can also be determined through a simple formula. (Amps x Volts = Watts)

c. List out these devices from highest starting watts to lowest starting watts as seen in Table 2 below.


Table 2

Example DevicesStarting WattsRunning Watts
Air compressor2,0001,000
Refrigerator1,600800
Microwave01,000
Blender850400

2. To find the total running watts, add all of the running watts together from Table 2.


1,000 + 800 + 1,000 + 400 = 3,200 total running watts


3. In Table 3, shown below, the values from Table 2 are used to calculate the highest total starting watts required as devices are connected and running. This number represents the highest power requirement you will encounter as you connect all of your devices to the generator. To find this, add the starting watts of each new device you connect to the combined running watts of all connected devices. The highest of these numbers will be the total starting watts required. And again, remember to always connect devices in order from highest starting watts to lowest starting watts.


Table 3

DeviceStarting WattsRunning Watts of All Connected DevicesTotal Starting Watts Required
1. Air compressor2,000 +0 (nothing connected)= 2,000
2. Refrigerator1,600 +1,000 (air compressor)= 2,600
3. Microwave1,000* +1,800 (air compressor + refrigerator)= 2,800
4. Blender850 +2,800 (air compressor + refrigerator + microwave)= 3,650

* Even though the microwave does not have starting watts listed, you have to account for the power needed to actually run it.


850 + 2,800 = 3,650 highest total starting watts required


In order to run all of these devices simultaneously, you would require a generator with at least 3,650 starting watts and 3,200 running watts. The starting watts are determined by the highest total starting watts required during the calculation in Table 3/Step 3. The running watts are determined by the total running watts from Step 2.

Video Transcript for etrailer 2000 Watt Portable Inverter Generator Review

Randy: Hey, guys. Randy here at etrailer.com. We get questions all the time about generators here and people want to know how much generator do they need. We've been doing a lot of testing on a lot of different stuff: hairdryers, TVs, DVD players, coffee pots, stoves, refrigerators, microwaves, just about anything we can think of that you might have in your camping situation to help you determine that. Now, we're going to talk about the 2,000 starting watt, 1,600 running watt etrailer.com inverter type generator. Now, the generators are going to be available two ways, either as a single generator inverter or as a dual that can actually be paralleled together and give you much more power.

Now, the single generator kit is basically going to be for very small cabins, campers, or tailgating situations. They can even be handy out there on some of the job sites as long as you're not running heavy duty industrial type tools.Now, the parallel kit, that covers us right up to our medium sized campers. We've been running ours today doing all of our testing. We are running them in parallel. We've got a 15,000 BTU air conditioner that's been running all day without problem.

We've been running the TV and DVD player, the refrigerator, and even have been able to run the microwave, the blow dryer here, or the coffee pot. Now, we haven't successfully been able to run the coffee pot and the blow dryer with the air conditioner and the other items on. Anytime you're using an item like this, which you'll see when we start giving you some wattage output readings or some wattage draw readings that we've been getting out of these, that if it has a heating element, it takes a lot more wattage to run it.Now, before we get too far into the details of what everything runs and all the buttons on the generator, I want to talk about the importance of having that inverter. Old style generators basically just generated power. They'd surge, they'd peak, they'd come up, they'd come down and we didn't have any kind of consistency to that.

Now that we have the inverter generator, that gives us a more pure power, a more consistent power. It really allows us to use it with any type of electronics. We've been running this generator for a couple of days now. TV's been working great. DVD player's been working fine.

Even charging cell phones, charging laptops. The things that we're more concerned with are things we really don't have to worry about.Now, some RVs do have inverters built in, some of them won't so it's going to be a difference there. If yours already has an inverter, the benefit you're going to see with an inverter type generator like what we're looking at today or even our 3,200 watt model if you need more power, it's going to be that they're much more quiet than the older generators were. They're generally always going to be encased. The ones we're looking at today have spark arresters that are already built in, so they're certified for the US Forest Service. You can take them there when you go camping. That inverter is going to be more like power that you get at your house. It's going to be cleaner, it's going to be pure and it's going to protect anything that we've got plugged into it.Now, we're going to run down the list of some pretty common household items. These are going to be items that you can generally see when you're out camping, maybe tailgating, or even just having a cookout. Let's say, for instance, a 32 inch flat screen TV. It's going to use about 68 watts maximum while running. A DVD player, is going to be about 14 watts. A hairdryer on low heat, low blow mode, it's about 160 watts. Whereas a hairdryer in its highest setting could draw as much as 1,300. A coffee pot at its hottest settings is going to be about 1,066 watts. A fast charge cell phone charger, it's only about 11 watts. Then, depending on your microwave, the wattage is usually stated there. Typically in an RV, though, you'll see them anywhere from 800 up to 1,000 watts. An icebox, 10 cubic feet that we've got here in the RV we're working with, it runs at 300 watts.Then, for example, if you wanted to use a crock pot to keep things warm, we tested a dual crock pot on the single lowest setting. It was only about 126 watts. On the dual highest setting, it went all the way up to 374. This should give you an idea based on the items that you're going to be using, how much generator you're going to need to cover that. Now, as far as noise levels go with the generators, we're running the dual bank kit. It's just a little bit hot today. We wanted to get the air going in here. So with those duals we're running the 15,000 BTU air conditioner. That's putting a high load on them. You can imagine it's sucking a lot of wattage through there.This is going to be running somewhere around 1,100 to 1,300 watts, somewhere in that range. Really inside of the area here, the kitchen dining room area, we can't hear the generators at all. I'm going to walk back a little closer to the bedroom. We've got a window there. Generator's only about three foot out of there. As we get closer to there you might start to hear them a little bit. Going to hear just that little bit of that generator noise and that's about as loud as they're going to get with as much wattage as what we're drawing through.Right now, another common question that we get is about the noise levels generated. What we've got here is basically about 1500 watts steady power being drawn through our generators. This is about as loud as they're going to get there. Now, we're going to take a walk around to the other side of the RV to see it's going to get a lot quieter. We'll go to the middle and then all the way up to the front, so it's going to be about 10, 20, and also 30 feet away.All right, here at 10 foot you can see quite a bit quieter. We don't have quite the noise. You can talk at a little bit more peaceful level. But as we get further and further away, it really allows for much better conversation. Here we are at about the 20 foot mark. And, of course, the RV is between us, but generally you're going to have a 20 or 30 foot cord on your generators and you'll have them about that far away from your coach or wherever you're going to be using them. Then you can see once we get up to here the front, you pretty much can't hear them anymore. It's going to give you a nice, peaceful experience, especially when we compare this type of generator to the older type generators that we're much louder.Then here's this set up we've been able to successfully run all of those appliances on including that 15,000 BTU air conditioner. Basically, we've got our two 2,000 watt etrailer generators set up and we've set them up in parallel. Now, these parallel wires are going to come included with the generator. Basically, we just want to ensure as we hook them up that the one that comes out of the top port of one generator goes into the top port of the other. The bottom is going to go to the bottom there. Now, if you're just using a single generator, of course, you're not going to need the parallel it. It's going to be a pretty straightforward system. You can see here we've got our standard household plug in and it does have that angled plug if you have an appliance that uses just a little bit more power.Here we're going to have our 30 amp twist lock, but let me pull it out of this one so you can see it. It's also going to come with the adapter that we can add in for the other type with the ground and then our two angled plugs there. Now, that goes in very easily, very quickly. We're going to have our breaker here. This is going to be our choke. These start really easily. Doesn't take a lot of power to get them going, but in that initial setting or when they are cold, pulling that joke out usually takes one pull. It'll get going. Push that in. It goes right to work. You're also going to have a charging port here. It's a USB charger. It's going to be five volt, 2.1 amps, so common fast charge system. There is an eco mode. The ECO mode, if we're running lower wattage stuff, we can switch that on. That's going to use less fuel. It's going to run quieter. It's going to use less fuel so you don't have to worry about consumption too much there.Now, the green light on top, that's going to indicate, when lit up, the generator is ready for use. It's putting out the wattage that we're looking for. The red light, if it comes on, that means you've overloaded them. You're inside your camper, you've got your AC on, you've got your coffee pot on, and somebody hits a hairdryer. That's very likely going to overload the system. So the red light's going to come on. Basically what you do is just turn your generator off. Once it completely quits, turn it back on, pull your handle, you'll be ready to go back to work.We also have a fuel shutoff here. That's something I really like. Common issues that we have with generators are fuels sits in them for too long and basically it causes them to gum up and the carburetors not to work properly. What I recommend that you do when you're done with your generator and you're ready to store it, of course your fuel's going to be on, before you shut anything off just turn that to the off position and let that generator run until it dies. That's going to clear your carburetor of any fuel and you're just not going to have that issue. Also, it's a great idea to ground out your generator. Basically we can just put a wire here between the two nuts, stick that into a grounding stake into the ground, and then we won't have to worry about any electrical hazards.Now, as far as comparing these to other generators that we have available, we did some pretty extensive testing with them and these etrailer generators really out perform the A-iPower competition that we offer. Basically, using two of these generators, we successfully started a 15,000 BTU air conditioner every single time. Using the two 2,000 A-iPower, never one time did that air conditioner come on and start. They overloaded every single time. So we definitely get better performance out of these generators. Even our customers have echoed the same thing. They have really good results out of these. They definitely seem to be a superior product to some of the others that are available.Now, I get the question all the time, "Is that something you would buy" These are definitely something I would buy. Now, if you have higher power demands than what these are going to offer, the 3,200 is a great option as well. It's going to deliver and meet up to those higher options. You can also pair a 2,000 with a 3,200 or you can run paralleled 3,200s. So, all in all, the etrailer line is going to be an excellent choice when it comes to generators.

Excellent product. Super easy to start and runs quietly. I’m not sure it’s as quiet as a Honda but, the point is I’m not sure. At $600 bucks cheaper that’s a pretty good deal. Had no issues starting in maintaining my Advent Air ACM 135 rooftop air conditioner. 643787

I received my Generator extremely fast. (3 days from order date). I haven't taken it camping with me yet but I did add the oil it came with and added gas and started it. It started on the 5th pull. I plugged a toaster into it and that worked fine. I will see how the 30 amp part of it works next week with my camper on the trout streams. 654210

Shipment was fast. Was easy to follow startup instructions. It started up very easily, and to my surprise, it was very quiet. I couldn’t hear it running from inside my house. I haven’t put it to the test yet,( my travel trailer) can’t wait to see how it performs. 695789

Review from a similar etrailer etrailer Generator Manual in Generators


Well, it's brand new. So far I'm pleased with this generator. It's reasonably quiet. I ran it for about an hour in my backyard and could not hear it at all in the front yard. I could start hearing it about 1/2 way from front to back. It started easily --- second pull. Voltage and HZ seem to be stable. So far, I've only run a few lights for about 45 minutes without issue. Shipping was extremely fast. Once again, I'm really happy with E-Trailer. 706410

Runs everything and my AC in my 17 ft Coachman clipper trailer......at this point I have only tested it out....but after putting oil and gas in it, it started on second pull out of the box...seems to be a well built good running machine and just as quiet as the smaller ones. 662906

Review from a similar etrailer etrailer Generator Manual in Generators


I took this setup along with me on my first trip with the new Trailer (finally). Prior to leaving, initial setup was easy, they started pretty easy and I ran a shop Vac off each generator just as a test. On the trip, i used them both individually (with 30 Amp plug) and in parallel (with 50 amp plug). Everything seemed to work fine and the units in parallel ran both my A/C units at once without seeming to be pushed to hard. They are not as quiet as a Honda (I had one with my previous Camper) but they are not bad. The "eco" switch (essentially an auto-throttle) helps keep the noise down and seems to work as smoothly as my previous Honda. The individual generators don't seem to be overly heavy and are relatively easy to move around. It also appears they will be pretty easy to service (It appears they will be easier than my Honda was). I will caution that when hooking up the ground wire for the parallel kit to each generator, the nut you must remove to attach the ground wire was tightened pretty hard. When trying to remove it, I actually loosened the stud the nut attaches to. Use 2 wrenches (on to hold the stud and one to loosen the nut) to prevent this from happening. 698146

Received the generators today and within 30 minutes I had both of them unpacked and up and running. They work great and are very quiet compared to other generators I have had. These will be perfect for my RV trailer in the backwoods. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a small quiet generator or a pair of them. Great Value and really quick shipment. 594909

Review from a similar etrailer etrailer Generator Manual in Generators


I have right at 5 hours on it as of today. In the AM I'll fire it up for about ten minutes and then change oil to full synthetic. We have yet to hit the road with it however we've been "camping" here at the house to work out any bugs so that when we do travel we won't forget anything. We have a 2019 Jayco 212 QB that has a 13,500 K ac, microwave, plus the other standard RV stuff. The generator powers both the ac and the microwave simultaneously without issue. We were surprised at how quiet the unit is even when it powers up to handle the ac cycling on. Able to sleep without interruption. All in all a great unit at a great price. My neighbor has a Honda which won't handle his AC so I expect he'll be ordering one sooner or later. Almost forgot to mention the 30 amp RV outlet, what a plus that is. 636148

One of the two generators in this kit did not have an air filter element in it. Glad I took the air filter cover off and checked before running it. Seems like good quality product. Parallel wires are very small diameter. I will have to check parallel operations to know if that feature works as advertised. Each of the two generators start easy, run quiet, and support 1600 watts with ease. 569803

So far I like the generators EXCEPT for the noise level! Since I already own a Honda eu3000is to compare the dB level. I honestly am concerned they may be TO loud for campgrounds! I’m waiting for the parallel system to test that with the new generators. 728958

  • What Happens if Jets Arent Changed on Generator at Higher Altitudes
  • When you use an inverter generator like the etrailer.com # 333-0001 at higher altitudes (without changing the jets to a high-altitude model) the unit is simply going to be less efficient with its power output. At higher altitudes the air is less dense, which means there's less oxygen in it.
