After much research, I recently purchased a Champion 3100 watt inverter generator to use with my new Rockwood. So far I'm very happy with the unit, but one thing does worry me. The manual says to shut the unit down by turning off the fuel valve to starve the carb of gas. When I do this, the engine surges wildly several times before finally stopping and the power output light turning off. My concern is will the same thing happen if it runs out of gas while powering my trailer and could the surging cause damage to the air conditioner? Of course there was no load when I intentionally shut the generator off, would the heavy load of the A/C prevent all the surging? I'm leery of trying this myself, I like to avoid short-cycling the compressor!
Thanks ahead for any input.
