Note that, at least with our shore power connection, a regular garden-variety extension cord won't work...the male end is a standard 3-prong plug while the female end looks, to me, more like a 3-prong 220v outlet.

Generator Box

The cord needed for the additional length needs to be a 30 amp 10/3 STW with the correct Marinco connector for attachment to the Sportmobile . The Dry weight of the Honda 2000 generator is 46.3 pounds and with the 1.1 gallons of fuel in it you will weigh in at 52 pounds . I do not think that you would be able to load and unload this unit from an Aluminess Galley Box , given the condition of your Shoulders ! I have found the Honda 2000 and Yamaha 2400 to be very trouble free and easy to start 2 to 3 short pulls and your running . Be sure to have jetting compensated for altitudes above 5000 feet I would go to an RV accessary store like Camping Land or Camping World there in Texas an handle this generator prior to purchase .

Thank you to everyone.
Greggde, you are right about my shoulders. They are pathetic. Even in my 40's, at my peak strength and before my injuries, I hated trying to start the gas mower.
I have heard from our most knowledgeable poster re: SMB's, that the Honda 2000 will not support the Starcool. I looked at the Honda 3000, and decided I'd rather not have air conditioning while boondocking than deal with that. But I WILL get the cord that you guys recommend and at least try to sneak some electricity every once and a while.
