I am an over the road truck driver who needed a reliable generator for my Kenworth T2000. I bought my Honda EU3000iS about 1 year ago and it has worked very well . It took a little sorting out , but with the long range wireless remote control kit and extended run fuel tank kit both from Pinellas Power Products, it now works great for me. This system actually works better than my old APU that cost almost 3 times as much money. I use the switched outlet to power up my block heater which my old APU could not do. I would recomend the Honda EU3000iS with the Pinellas Power Products kits to anyone looking to replace their old Auxiliary Power Unit.

If this were a rating similar to other product sites, I would give Paul and Pinellas Power Products 6 stars on a scale of 1-5. Their products are superior in every way and customer support is exceptional. I purchased an extended run kit for my generator and everything worked the way they said it would. Also, their videos are on point and easy to follow. I have no reservation in recommending this company to anyone, even novices.

The following is why I do no longer sell generators with my kits pre-installed any more. I am not a Honda or Yamaha dealer so I must buy a generator from a local dealer and then Install my kits. I do not have time to search the internet to find the lowest price,When a customer ask for a unit I simply bought from my local dealer. Below is an actual email negotiation that I had with a prospective customer.

I have 2100 hours on it without a lick of trouble. I am interested in getting a 7000 from you with the extended run fuel kit and the remote start. Would you should me a quote for everything including FL tax. I will drive up to your place from Vero Beach to pick it up so no shipping needed. Thanks Rob Swanson

If you are not willing to supply your own generator and do not like the price that I would have to charge then then you do not have to make the purchase, however there is no cause for your lack of professional courtesy.
Hi! Re your EV6010 tech support videos. I can’t thank you enough for all the information and thought you put into making them. I’m having the typical “no start” scenario you described. I bought myself my first lil multi-meter and followed along your carefully laid out troubleshooting steps. And you confirmed my suspicions that unfortunately I’m gonna have to do the dreaded generator removal from the RV. As it is not producing AC, confirmed by the test you showed on the 2 brown wires only showing a half a volt. While the generator removal is going to be a dreaded all day event accompanied by a few swear words and some bloody knuckles. That’s going to be the hardest part of the job. Because your videos are going to make fixing this thing a heck of a lot easier then the removal of it!
It’s because of your videos that I WILL be able to repair this unit on my own!!!!
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
First let me apologize for not getting back to you sooner. Got a bit tied up and did not get a chance to try your suggestions on the choke problem with my installation of your system.
Any way it was fantastic! I removed the original screw on the choke cable as suggested. hit the start button and it fired right up without activating the choke.
Would like to tell you how impressed I am with you and your company from start to finish. I ordered and received everything in amazingly quick time. And when I e-mailed you to ask a question on the choke issue I think you called me (which is unheard of) as soon as I hit the send button. That response is not only very much appreciated, it is almost unheard of these days, and the fix was spot on!
You should do another You-Tube video on how to run quality Customer Service. Other companies should certainly follow your example!
Thanks again and you can be sure i will pass on the opinion to as many as I can.
PW, The shut off is beyond simple and works great! I have been looking for something like this to fill the need. I have an off grid cabin that is powered by a Honda 2000, usually on idle. So as I am the most sleepy and groggy comes the dreaded time to shut off the generator. Since I sometimes am in the toasty cabin with the wood stove and outside is the deep snow and -15F, it’s ok suit up, coat, hat, boots and go shut off the generator in its little “doghouse” 50 feet away. No more! Thanks Dean from the Adirondacks of New York
I just wanted to say that your remote start kit for the Honda EU7000is is well designed and with your thorough instruction video, easy to install. Worked great first try! I have a camp / cabin on an island on Sebago Lake and Maine and this product will make my life so much easier.
Only one question/comment:
My dream is to arrive to the camp at night (by boat it’s on an island) and remote start the generator from the water to switch on a spotlight. The issue is that it requires leaving the generator on standby for an extended period of time (1-2 weeks at most).
Have you every determined how long the generator can remain on standby with a larger capacity battery I.e. Maybe a deep cycle marine battery or auto battery? Appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.
Reply: Battery life is about 2 days on stand by, the best way to do what you want is to use a solar battery maintainer, get at least a 20 watt unit, the 5 watt ones are a joke.
The wife recently bought me remote shut off kit. It was simple to install and operate. However, I do have one question. Can you think of any reason why I cant directly plug USB in to the plug skipping the battery bank entirely?
Cheers Happy with the purchase.
Reply: You have an EU2000i, that unit stops making power when the RPMs drop below 1200 so without the battery it would not shut off completely.
Thank you for the kick-arse remote shut off for our Honda EU2000i Genny at our off grid cabin.
Easy to install, we ordered early last week and it arrived Thursday…great stuff.
Works super well, worth every penny

Many thanks !!! Fast response and fast delivery On 4 Function Wireless Remote for Honda EU3000iS!
Product works well and i will highly recommend your company and product
Thanks a lot
Paul, I just wanted to thank you for your remote starter I bought from you two weeks ago. I put it in this weekend and it was easy and took about 4hr because I took my time. The video was great and I know I’m going to love it. I have the generator mounted on top of our living quarters horse trailer and can wait to hit the road in April. Thank you so much!!!

Got everything sorted out and the kit works like a champ. Thanks for your help along the way.
Tom Oldham Origional Electric Start Kit with Remote Control for Honda EU2000i
I just wanted to say that the install went perfect and I enjoyed it thoroughly , using you install video. You are a true genius. Thanks for putting together such an awesome product. It. Works awesome. The only thing I had to do was go buy a new battery as the batteries in the remotes were dead. You sent one extra battery I just went out and bought one more. Other than that all went well. Thanks again and have a great day !!!! PS. If I sent you an electrical diagram of my gravely generator ( with a Honda engine ) could you design a remote shutdown for it. That would be all I want it to do. It has an on board battery and electric start. Let me know if you would be interested. Thanks…..

First I want to say thanks for such quick shipping of the product to Canada, second I want to let you know how pleased I am with the general quality of everything (everything appears to be of great quality). Your instructional video has been awesome (excellent detail & explanation), however I have run into a glitch while installing the wires from the relay to the 20amp outlet. I have a 2016 canadian model and the wiring is different than on your supplied usb video and I just checked your website (video is the same). I actually have 2 red wires going to the upper end and 1 red wire going to the lower end on the 1 side of the 20amp plug in (your video only shows 1 red wire), there is also no existing jumper between these 2 connections (your video stated there should be one there that I should be removing). Since this is a brand new generator I do not want to take any chances and am therefore requesting your assistance in what I should be doing. Attached is a couple photos for reference. Thanks
Reply From Paul Wolaver
Yes this is correct. The Canada model units are actually easier to install due to the fact that they have a separate breaker for each outlet. This is all you will need to do. Remove the wire that runs from the breaker to the outlet that you want to control, then put the blue wire from my kit where one end of that wire was, then put the red wire of my kit where the other end of that wire was. you will need to change the end on the wire that you put on the breaker. It is that easy.

Hello Paul, received my remote start kit for the Honda 3000,,, Watched the installation video 1 time last night , received it at 10:30 this morning , had it installed bout an hour !! COULDN’T BE HAPPIER !!!! Video was as if I were there with you , loved the way you hit the “little” points !! Works like a charm . The main reason I purchased this is do to where I live , a resort on the river here in Sacramento Ca , when winter hits there are several power outages here do to 50 plus year old infrastructure , anyway , my sister lives with me and when I’m gone she would not have been able to go out hook up the generator get it going etc etc,,,, it is now wired directly to the house via transfer switch , all she has to do is throw the transfer switch and hit the remote !! Great design, neat installation , fair price !! Once again thank you and I will push this product !!!! John !!!
