If park power is strong, the voltage drop should not prohibit running the AC. The problem comes if park power is low to start with and the voltage drop becomes significant.
If the voltage is normal, the current of your appliances is as rated; however low voltage will increase the current requirement of inductive loads (like the AC and the microwave) causing a higher than normal voltage drop in the cord.
This can cause the AC to run hot or not start at all; the microwave to burn out its magnetron, etc. A good AC voltage and amperage monitor is a wise investment in my opinion.
