    Still struggling/experimenting with my Honda EU2000i
    and my home furnace - flame detect circuit kicks out if
    I plug all three wires from furnace to generator (3-prong
    plug on line from furnace). Anyways, found this article
    that I thought people who were incolved with my origianl
    thread might find helpful: (slow page, so just be patient)

    Well, you make good points, but again, I believe this
    is some strange grounding deal. I think the HF may
    get shunted back to frame ground, and fed back to
    the furnace over the ground lead or somehting

    Tie neutral and ground at _one_ point only, right?
