DIY Inverter Parallel Cable

How-to build a parallel cable and accepting the danger of a dead man's cord. Understand this and its risks if you decide to build it! Best rule of thumb everything stays connected when any of the generators are running. Always shut down all generators before making connection changes.

Powermate 2000I Inverter Generator Review

I needed a generator for a weekend camping trip and after some quick research located a locally sourced (Walmart) unit that would be somewhat of a gamble. It is a Powermate 2000i. Specs show output to be 2000 watts surge and 1600 watts continuous. I couldn't find much info other than a pulsar brand review which appeared to be the same unit.  After picking it up and getting oil in it (they even gave me a funnel) I was pleasantly surprised to its quality, low sound, and output.  I've used it now for 2 weekend trips and have purchased another unit that I'll be operating in parallel now that its A/C weather. The parallel connections are standard banana jacks but I'll likely rig up a dead man style direct to 50A plug for convenience and keep a sense of danger with me while camping. I'll likely show that as well but its a use at your own risk type of thing.
