As others has stated will run it but need to watch the frig and the battery charger.

I have a Polar Cub 9201D, and run it with my Honda 2000, without a problem. It does not run the Honda at full RPM. The specs on the Cub, says it requires AMPS: 8.5-amps(low) to 8.9-amps (high). I have not had the need to disconnect my 55A Iota charger, while running the A/C.

Edit: I do not run my Refer on 12-volts, and do not run my microwave while running the A/C.

Thanks for all the input. Its installed and works great with the 2000W Honda. Just like you all said it would.

Its interesting how everyone who uses this equipment says it works fine (not one who said it doesn't) yet the tech's at the Dealer RV Parts dept's say it won't work.

Which model Polar Cub did you end up getting?

Will it run on econo mode?

What the altitude at your location?

Thanks,
Brad

Brad. The model is 9201A 776 (I'm not sure what the 776 designates)
Yes it runs on econo mode. I live near the coast so my elevation is near sea level. I understand that can make a difference so I'll post soon as I know about running it at higher elevs.

Are you sure it is 776? I think maybe it is a 876. If so, I think the 876 is the color, ARC WHT. If it was a 879, the color is BLK.

This link, Model Number Changes, is how I came to that conclusion.

The fan (hi-1.4 amps or low-1 amp), will run in the econo mode. When the compressor (7.6 amps) kicks in the Honda will go out of the econo mode.

This is the data sheet for the Polar Cub 9201B876. I think this is the same for all of the 9200 series.

Data sheets can be found here.

This very important question/subject has been coming up on and off for the last 4 years in this forum. The absurdity of those huge 13.5 and 15 BTU A/C units that manufacturers blindly put in TCs, surely added to the fire.

As the above readers have said it will work, and just be considerate of other high-wattage appliances running at the same time. One thing I have found with this combination: I like to put the H2000 in NON-Eco mode, start AC, and then after a minute, manually put Eco Mode on, the generator then tends to go more into Eco Mode this way than 'automatically'. Minor point, but perhaps useful, since to many, the less generator noise the better.

13.5 and 15k BTU A/Cs aren't absurd when you like to go to Black Rock Desert, Nevada in August!
