Newbie here with Honda 2000 generator. I am even hoping I can get it started with the rope pull but once that is accomplised how do you charge the battery with it? Are there clamps that hook to the battery or just by having the rig plugged into it, will charge the battery? I bought it and realized I mostly camp in campgrounds with electric, so not even sure I needed it but was a good deal(brand new) so bought it. I have a chainsaw that I cannot start with the rope, others can but I cannot, need lessons I guess but..... worried I should have bought a generator with electric start. We shall see.
you should have started your own thread, instead of piggybacking on one talking about a cheap 800w generator.
plug the rig's shore cord, with a 30/15amp adapter, into one of the Honda's outlet. don't use the worthless 12v cables, it'll take forever to recharge the battery.
i can only speculate if your rig has a good 3-stage converter/charger.
if it does, it'll recharge the battery fine unless the battery is bad. you might want to post the model and brand of your converter. should be something from its manufacturer with your owner's manual.
if it's a new one, it should start easily, just like a lawnmower with a Honda motor.
