Electrical Power Requirement For AC in Rockwood 8288WS

I have a 2011 Rockwood Ultralite 8288WS 5th Wheeler and wonder what is the minimum generator power required to run this trailer with standard Air Conditioning.

While I some folks use a Yamaha 2400 (in normal mode), my Yamaha 3000SeB handles our 15K AC and other household duties just fine as well. With a "hard start" capacitor on the AC it will handle it in ECO mode.

Others have used the Honda 2000 (in pairs only) and also have had good service.

I have a Champion 3500 running/4000 surge that I use with my rockwood 8281ss 5th wheel, handles 15k a/c and water heater, can't handle that and microwave though.
