Will this work on the Dometic 135000btu ac units?

Mine a Coleman but I'm pretty sure it will. As you go up in elevation, you lose about 1 1/2% of your wattage output, so keep that in mind.

Thanks, everyone for the advice. Since it only happened this once, we'll treat it as an isolated incident and keep an eye on it for now. At least we found out about the "master" breaker on the generator!

Now, if I can keep the blonde away from the thermostat.
