Powerful, Portable Generators

A-iPower SUA2000i outlets

These A-iPower SUA2000i inverter generators combine to provide 3,800 watts of clean AC power to get you up and running whether you're at the campsite, worksite, or tailgate party. Each powerful generator comes with (1) 120V outlet for powering household appliances, tools, and electronic devices. They each feature (1) 120V L5-30R twist-lock outlet for large appliances and motorized tools with greater electrical demands. Lastly, they each include (1) 12V 8.3-amp DC outlet that charges automotive and marine batteries.


As an added convenience, each SUA2000i also includes 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.


Finally, each compact unit weighs only 46 lbs and has a built-in ergonomic handle, making them easy to take with you no matter where you go.


Built-in Parallel Ability

A-iPower SUA2000i inverter generator has built-in parallel ability

Each SUA2000i comes equipped with parallel ability that lets you easily pair them with each other to produce 3,800 watts of power. By increasing the power output, you can run equipment with higher electrical demands. The included parallel connection cables simply plug into the corresponding ports on each generator's control panel. Because the parallel ability is built-in, you don't have to purchase a separate kit and remember to bring it with you.


Safe for Sensitive Electronic Devices

Electronic devices are made with delicate circuitry that requires steady, controlled electrical current. The current produced by standard generators, however, is uncontrolled, allowing extreme fluctuations in power. These fluctuations can damage your sensitive electronic devices. These generators, on the other hand, have built-in inverters that control the voltage that is produced. This important feature ensures each generator is safe to use with your electronic equipment such as cell phones, computers, and medical devices.


Easy-Start Engine

Each generator features a recoil handle that provides easy manual startup. They use 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. Once the generator is up and running, follow the recommended order of operation: connect the device with the highest starting watts first, like your air conditioner or refrigerator, then work your way down to the device with the lowest starting watts. By connecting devices in this order, you'll ensure the generator has enough power to start high-wattage loads.


Eco Throttle Engine Speed Options

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

safety lights

Each generator comes with a number of safety features to protect you, the environment, and the generators. The control panel contains 2 warning lights that indicate 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. The digital voltage regulator assists in minimizing voltage fluctuations which helps to maintain a steady flow of electricity. Also, a built-in spark arrestor helps prevent any sparking that might burn someone or start a fire.


Choosing a Generator

When choosing a generator, you need to match the generator's starting and running output with the electrical demands of the equipment 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.

* 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

The following section provides calculations for wattage estimates. This will give you an overall picture of your potential power usage and help you decide on the generator that is right for you.


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.

I purchased the 289-SUA2000i-2 for my camper. I placed them on a carrier
attached to the trailer receiver and everything worked great.....EXCEPT...
while the generater were run i went into the camper and the vibrations were so
bad i had to turn the generators off. do you have any suggeations.generators
started on the firt pull and ran great.

Unfortunately, the vibrations you mentioned are unavoidable. Any internal combustion engine will have a certain amount of vibration, because your cargo tray is attached to a hitch bolted to the campers frame, that vibration is transmitted directly to the structure of your camper. Some sort of closed-cell foam mat might help isolate the vibration from the camper.

I bought 2. They start easily and are pretty quiet. Easy to move around .
Both connected in parallel will NOT run my RV air conditioner.

When set up in parallel, the 289-SUA2000i-2 generator set has a startup or surge max power output of 3800 watts, and a max running output of 3000 watts. In order to determine if this will be sufficient to run your RV A/C unit, youll need to know the max amount of power needed for start up. If the compressor for your A/C requires more than 3800 watts to start, this generator set wont be sufficient.



by:

Works great starts easy they run my AC,and lights and light weight easy to take out or put in truck I would recommend them to others



by:

The generators are reasonably quiet. Don't be mislead by reviews suggesting that they will run even a small new rooftop RV A/C in parallel. That has not been my experience. Maybe with the EZ start capacitor modification, but in stock form the A/C overloads the gens.



by:

I was really impressed with the looks of this generator. I usually only buy Honda on everything if I have a choice, but this time I decided to take a gamble. I have not used them yet but if they run as good as they look, I shouldn't have a problem. They will be used for construction work on a cabin in the Henry Mtns (Utah). Elevation of work site is 10,400'.

It reminds me of Honda equipment. Easy to start and runs great. Im very pleased with it.



by:

Received generators today. One box was torn pretty badly but there appears to be no damage to the generator. I added oil and inspected them. They appear to be well made with some nice features not found on others. Raining here so will have to postpone the start-up for a day or two.

I purchased 2 of those generators and after reading many reviews I thought that they would power the ac on my camp trailer. I was wrong they will not start the ac and they will not run the microwave. So, all that being said they do work, as I can run lights and tv but for me and my intent they were a waste of money. I now need a larger generator that I can’t afford so they sit in my shed and gather dust.



by:

I really like the generators because they are quiet and they last a good amount of time on a full tank. I've used them several times when we've gone dry camping and on other situation and thus far I am very pleased.



by:

eTrailer service was fantastic! The 5-star rating is for eTrailers, not the product. Yet. (See below)

I just received the generators and have forwarded them on to my friends in hurricane-torn Puerto Rico, where they will certainly be put to the test. Updates once they arrive there!



by:

I have used these generators very little in the past year. Ì run them often to keep them ready for when I really need them. They have performed wonderfully. So far they have lived up to the reviews and I am happy as a pappy. Thanks!



by:

I have used these generator for power at my sight in AZ for 6 month that I'm there, which has no power to it, up to 12 hour on some days and they ran just great. They have not gave me any problems what so ever, they are great products and I would recommend these with great confidence to any one that need a generator.



by:

Product came early . Etrailer customer support was excellent . It was exactly what i was looking for .



by:

No problems,fast shipping,nice units,internal built in parallel kit is a plus over other units.



by:

Fast shipping...great price!

We used it to keep the battery charged and odd and ends worded like a champ and we can still talk with it running what more could you ask for.



by:

Product arrived ahead of the original delivery date and was in perfect shape. Added Oil and Gas, fired up on the 2nd pull. I took it with me to a remote cabin site and proceeded to use if for 2 days running saws and a compressor. Started with no more than 2 pulls each time and ran perfectly. Also runs very quiet, had no problems carrying on a conversation while standing next to it. I recommend it to anyone that needs a small Generator.

  • Is A-iPower 2,000-Watt Inverter Generator Compatible With Firman to Run in Parallel
    The A-iPower 2,000-Watt Portable Inverter Generator - 1,600 Running Watts - Gas - Manual Start # 289-SUA2000i is not compatible with the Firman inverter generator to run in parallel. Generators are not cross-compatible in that way, so if you have a need for more wattage, what you would need to do is go with two of the A-iPower run in parallel, which you can get with the A-iPower 3,800-Watt Portable Inverter Generators - 3,000 Running Watts - Gas - Manual Start # 289-SUA2000i-2.

  • How To Get Clean 12V Power for Sensitive Electronics
    The 4,500-Watt Portable Generator, # 333-0004 is a conventional generator that supplies power for the job site or emergency situations. This does not have a built in inverter to control current and therefore susceptible to fluctuations and can cause damage to sensitive electronics such as cell phones when plugged in directly to the generator. If your battery charger is a newer digital "smart charger" design I would not recommend plugging in directly. However, if you have an older type...

  • Can A-iPower Generator be Parallel Connected
    Per the manufacturer, all of the inverter generators that are already parallel compatible (such as the SC and SUA lines like the # 289-SUA2000I you were looking at) are compatible for use in parallel with other units. Since both the SC2300 and SC2000 are parallel capable, you can use these two units together in parallel. We have the part # 289-SUA2000i-2 which is two of the generators and comes with a parallel kit. You do not have to start either in any particular order.

  • Recommended Power Source For A Street Vending Cart Pulling 2000 Watts
    You can power your street vending cart using an inverter but depending on the amount of wattage you're drawing you could potentially need quite a large battery bank to run your cart for the day which could require too much space. If you're pulling 2000w an hour then a 200amp battery would only last you a little over an hour. The amount of batteries needed to power your cart for a full day would take up a large amount of space and wouldn't really be cost effective. The best option would...

  • Does My Generator Need To Be Grounded To Function
    There are some generators that need to be grounded to function. For example the A-iPower 3,800-Watt Portable Inverter Generators part # 289-SUA2000i-2 would need to be grounded using the bolt/nut on the face. I have attached photo of what that looks like. There is not an adapter to ground them but you would most likely need to ground it with an included wire or like the photo shows. If you let me know which generator you have I can look into it for you.

  • Troubleshooting Multi-Switch on A-ipower Parallel Generator
    The housing on the switch may not be as sturdy as the other parallel generator, but as long as it functions properly I wouldn't be concerned. You can always look at the housing to see if it has any issue or if the fit is simply not as tight but all the connections are still firm and correct. If you bought them recently there is a 1 year parts and labor warranty as well as a 2 year parts replacement warranty. It could very well be that the switch just needs tightening, but it could be...

  • Replacement Spark Plug Recommendation A-iPower Inverter Generators w/ Parallel Kit # 289-SUA2000I-2
    The motor that comes with the A-iPower Inverter Generators w/ Parallel Kit # 289-SUA2000I-2 that you referenced is a version of the Yamaha MZ80 so for spark plugs you'd need a NGK BPR6HS which we don't carry, but you'd have no problem sourcing elsewhere.

  • How To Determine If Generator Is Being Overloaded When Hooked Up To 5th Wheel Trailer
    It is possible that your Honda 2000 Generator is overloaded, but the only way to know for sure is to determine the wattage of each of the appliances plugged in. From my research your generator is rated for 2000 starting watts and 1600 running watts, so you will want to make sure you stay under that. If you find you are overloading the generator you can possibly add another generator to run in parallel but you will need to confirm that the Honda generator your have can be used this way. Another...

  • Troubleshooting A Generator That Won't Start And Is Leaking Gasoline
    I'm willing to bet that the spark plug either needs to be cleaned or replaced since it seems to be the typical cause for issues with generators, like the # 289-SUA2000i-2. There's also a circuit breaker on the face of the unit that could be tripped and needs to be reset. As for the leak it wouldn't be able to diagnose it without actually taking it apart to discover where the leak is. It could be a simple as a dry-rotted fuel line that's leaking out. Even though you're past the warranty...
