Yup...What Fonzi said...double check the water heater and any other possible loads. The battery charger/ 12 v supply should only draw a few amps, anything 12v down stream of it may be a lot of amps in "DC", but is nothing for the 110v powered coverter to supply for all your 12v needs, including charging low batteries at the same time. Begin with your ac on low mode and switch up once its running if you have to, but your genni should be able to run the 13.5 on high all day long!

I have a Kill-A-Watt (model P4400 from P3 costs about $20) that is very handy in determining your load. You can just plug it in and push the WATT button and it will show how many watts you are drawing.

It maxxes out at 1800 watts, but still is nice to see what you are drawing without any big loads.

I'm not saying that the generator won't run the a/c because
it will. Any other loads is putting your amps at Max and you run
The risk of lowering your voltage therefore compromising your
Appliances. 13.5 k air on a hot day will draw 16 amp then add in a
Coffee maker at 6 to 8 amps takes you to 22 to 24 amps
This gennie is only rated at 23.3!

If you just run the a/c your fine

We had also used an adapter for the 30a locking plug on the generator. I will have to check on the w/h. We thought it was on gas but this was the 1st trip out using it so I'll check again. Just got the water heater Users Guide emailed to me from Suburban yesterday as it was not included in the paperwork from the dealer. Thanks for all the replys.
