I LOVE the Honda EU series.  I own an EU 2000 myself as a "second backup"..
They are quiet and very easy on gas.  In fact, they are the Prius of the
generator world.  That said, that generator is half the size that you were
talking about earlier. Will it really do what you want?  Have you looked at the
capacity chart on the Honda generator site?

 I liked the idea of splitting time between freezers on and air conditioner
I have 12 freezers about 7200 watts. They are not always all full, and worse
I could run 6 now and 6 later. Just insurance, sometimes $5,000 to
$0,000 of product in freezers.

A set of relays operated by a (battery operated) timer could sequence the

Not a bad idea (if you really must automate the process)  But why "reinvent the
wheel"?  You can buy compressor delay timers at any good AC & refrigeration
parts place.

ones, or get an assortment of different time delay times.

surges, I suspect.
