Expert Answers about A-Ipower

  • Can A-iPower SUA2000i Run Parallel Connection with A-iPower model SC2000i?
  • There are A-iPower generators capable of running in parallel, but the SUA2000i cannot be paired with the SC2000i model. Instead, you would be able to use the A-iPower Inverter Generators w/ Parallel Kit # 289-SUA2000I-2, which gives you a pair of generators, two 30-Amp RV adapters, two DC charging cables, two spark plug wrenches, and two oil funnels. I've added a link to a video review of this product for you to take a look at.

  • What Is Noise Level For A-iPower Inverter Generators
  • I found one sight online that rated the Honda EU 2000i decibel output at 59 decibels at 1/4 power. I was not able to find more specs on that model and we do not carry that generator. For the A-iPower Inverter Generators, part # 289-SUA2000I-2, the noise level is given for one unit. At a distance of 23-ft the decibel level is 65 at 1/2 power.

  • Will 4,000 Watt Generator Power 8,000 BTU AC Unit
  • An AC unit that is rated for 8,000 BTU draws up to 1,800 watts when starting and 1,200 when running. A 4,000 watt generator like the # 289-AP5000 would easily handle that.

  • Oil Change Process for A-iPower Generator 289-AP5000
  • The A-iPower 5,000-Watt Portable Generator # 289-AP5000 does not have a replaceable spin-on oil filter. Oil changes consist of simply draining the dirty oil completely and re-filling with fresh oil up to the appropriate level. The oil to be used can depend on the outside temperature; very cold temperatures call for a lighter weight of oil. This and other maintenance information will be found in the included owner's manual. The generator does have an air filter that can be washed and re-used.

  • 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.

  • Does the A-iPower 5000-Watt Generator Have an Automatic Voltage Regulator?
  • Yes, the A-iPower 5000-Watt Generator # 289-AP5000 does have the automatic voltage regulator (AVR) to help minimize voltage fluctuations. This unit is loaded with safety features. I includes a low oil warning light and automatically shuts off if the oil level becomes too low for safe use. The push-to-reset circuit breakers provide overload protection & the spark arrester prevents release of flammable debris. I love this generator because it uses standard unleaded gas which means no...

  • The A-iPower 2,000-Watt Inverter Generator w/ Parallel Kit - Senci Motor - Portable - Gas - 120V, # 289-SUA2000I is designed to be paired with a second identical model. They have not tried pairing it with other brands, so they can't confirm or deny a fit.

  • Will A-iPower 4,000-Watt Inverter Generator Kit # 289-SUA4000I-2 Require Jets For High Altitude?
  • A-iPower 3,800-Watt Inverter Generator - Portable - Gas - 120 Volts # 289-SUA2000I-2 is a popular generator system because it has parallel output that allows you to pair each 2,000-watt generator with another for increased power output. I reached out to the manufacturer and they said customers have confirmed that they work in up to 10,000 feet without jets needed. If you will be at the 8,000 to 10,000 feet, I personally recommend you have them on hand so you aren't without power in a...

  • What are the Differences Between A-iPower Generators
  • There is little difference between the pair of generators you referenced. The biggest is that # 289-SUA2000I uses a Senci 79-cc engine while 289-AP2000I uses a Yamaha MZ80 79-cc engine and is an inch longer and wider. Apart from that you will not be able to find a difference so I would not classify one as better than the other. I have attached links to video reviews of both generators for you to take a look at.

  • The A-iPower 2,000-Watt Portable Inverter Generator - 1,600 Running Watts - Gas - Manual Start # 289-SUA2000I is what I believe you are looking for and it is available. It has a Senci 4-stroke engine that has cast iron cylinder sleeves for long engine life.

  • Generator Will Shut Off After Running for a Minute
  • There are a wide variety of things that could be causing your generator, like the A-iPower # 289-SUA2000I, to shut off after a minute of running it. The common things to check for are making sure it has enough gas, that the gas is not old, how long it has been since the generator was started, if the battery is strong, and if you have a plugged fuel line. If it has been a while since the generator was started or if the gas is old it could have plugged a fuel line or gummed up the carburetor....

  • 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...

  • Are A-iPower Generators # 289-AP5000 Safe to Use with a Refrigerator and Air Conditioner
  • Converters, changing AC to DC power, and inverters, changing DC to AC power, both would first have to go to something on the trailer to regulate that power. That something is a transfer switch and it is usually designed to compensate for any issues that power transfer may cause whether it is coming for AC shore power or DC generators such as # 289-AP5000. Things like TVs and computers have sensitive electronics that need a clean sine wave to operate correctly and to get the most life...

  • Fuel Choice for A-iPower Inverter Generator
  • The A-iPower 2,000-Watt Portable Inverter Generator - 1,600 Running Watts - Gas - Manual Start # 289-SUA2000I prefers to use standard gasoline with ethanol. Ethanol is used as an "oxygenate" and is added to fuel to help reduce hydrocarbon emissions that cause air pollution. The attached instructions state to "use clean, fresh, regular unleaded fuel with a minimum octane rating of 85." Marine fuel can actually cause your engine to produce less power and will require more fuel to perform...
