Yes you can, It's the only way to cool the rear of the coach with the A/C.

you should run the generator at least a few hours a month under load, manual gives some specific advice. Works great going down the road, watching tv, cooking with convection oven, etc..

I always ran mine when it was hot, it does have a small impact on the fuel milage but who cares if you are comfortable.
