Interesting experiment.

Well we had a warm enough day to test my generator with my ac. Trailer is 2014 crusader with 50 amp service, 4590 pd power Center 15000btu dometic hp ac. Generator is yamaha 2400is about 5 years old. Very low hours and well maintained. First run of the year. This gen DID run the 13500 dometic in my 2006 cougar. So I let it warm a few minutes then hooked up and turned off the batt bypass. Then started ac on fan only for a minute then to cool and IT STARTED and ran. Let it run for 30 mins and blew nice and cool. I was quite amazed. I'm not saying this will work for any ac in any condition but if you already own a 2400 yam don't assume it won't run your 15000 ac.

I have the same genny and it runs my 13.5 no sweat. Well, no problems unless the DW turns on the microwave without warning me. Amazing genny.
