I would think changing the jets in the fuel system would compensate for the alttitude.

There is a screw you can adjust, at least on ours. I forget where or what but the guys at Super Gen showed me several years ago since we we're headed from NYS to Rocky Mtn Nat Park and camping at 8500 ft. Never needed to make the adjustment though.

I was wanting to do the same thing and when I called and talked to Champion tech rep he told me that paralleling the 2 2000 units wouldn't be enough and I would have to paralled 2 3100 units to start and run it. It seemed like a lot to me but that's what I was told. So for now I am left questioning what I need as well since i'm in the same situation as you.

Champion 2000w gen

I originally had the same problem with 2 2000w Yamahas in parallel. Prior to installing a hard start capacitor I was able to start the AC by turning on the fan only for a minute and then started the AC. You might give that a try. Good luck.

I've been reading on blogs & Youtube that with an easy start you can run an a/c on a Honda 2000. Has anyone here confirmed that?

Honda 2000

I have the Honda 2000 gen, and have run my 15000 A\C you need to buy the companion Honda 2000 gen. Although I have done this I would not recommend this since it appears to overwork the gen. I have two Honda gen (the regular gen and the companion) by paralleling these unit you can run your a\c and anything else you need to run without any problems

I just received my champion 3100 and in the book they said that you can call them and they'll send you the high altitude jets. Might be different for 2000's.

If you are always above that altitude you can try to rejet the carb.

I believe Champion does have high altitude jets for the 2000w.

I had a similar issue with my Champion as I live at 6000 feet. I was able to order from Champion at no cost to me a high altitude carb jet. Once I installed this and made sure my water heater and fridge were on propane the a/c unit fired up. Works great at altitude up to 10,000 feet. Runs a bit rough under 3,000 feet.
