I just purchased a Yamaha 2000 watt generator and it runs my Cool Cat fine. I copied a post about the generator below.
Well I fired up the new Yamaha generator and it started on the first pull! This thing is super quiet and easy to use. I was loading my camper back up for the year and hooking everything back up, so I decided to see if the generator would run the AC unit. The generator never even flinched, it stayed in Eco mode and I even turned on the lights and roof fan.
The Yamaha 2000 watt will run our 10,000 Cool Cat!!!
I am glad I did not buy a bigger generator, this thing is not extremely heavy, but I would not want to carry or move anything heavier.
I almost bought a cheaper generator to save a few dollars, but now I am glad I spent the money on a quality generator.
Here is the link for Wise Equipmen,they were great to work with, shipped fast and provided good tracking info. I did order an extended oil fill adapter and it made adding the oil much easier.
