Honda 2000 only puts out 1600 watts continuous watts. So yes it's maxed.

You are at max but it should still work straining all the time. Wire size can also affect your generators performance.

Your fine with that setup I have ran mine that way plus a reg 60 watt bulb plus battery charger .... No problems ran one generator that way for 3 years never done anything but Chang oil ... I changed every weekend tho but it wasn't nothing to run 24/36 hour each weekend but had opportunity to buy a like new one so I did but I bet old one still running strong I built a extended run fuel tank and would never shut off all night (generator Honda eu2000i) a must have will never be without one again !!!
