What kind of voltage are you putting out of the gennie when the a/c is running?

Volts? 120v . . . or are you asking if there is a drop in voltage? Or do you mean amps? Either way, we are out and about this weekend but I can measure it when we get back.

I will have to check the wattage of the gen. It says 20 amps on it but i never paid attention. Ive had the gen for 10 years or more. We always used it at race tracks or tent camping never tried to run a/c with it. Only fans lights radios and an occasional fry daddy. Ive never had to use it with our TH but an upcoming m/c rally has no hookups so i may need it. Maybe Ill just rent a bigger gen from home depot for the weekend

I'm wondering if you are reading the outlet output on the gen.

I have a 3100w Champion and it runs my a/c just fine! I'll check the voltage drop the next time I run it!
