Baby steps? Absolutely! I'll try to test the A/C with the 2000 next weekend at the campground. So many of you responders say you do it with a 2000, even tho the A/C manual says it won't work.

We tried the 1kw for our pup about 10 yrs ago. Yes, the $100 price tag was the selling factor. Besides sounding like a chain saw rev'ing next to us, everyone else was quite upset (enough to get the ranger over to talk about when to use..though we never ran early AM or late PM). So, for the rest of our boondock trips, we'd use two deepcycles and a battery charge. One battery on the camper, the other at the bathhouse getting charged. When we got our first htt, I wanted a gen that would kick over the a/c. I called Yamaha after reading several reviews about the 2400 watt being able to do it. Yamaha said they state it won't kick over the a/c compressor on a 13.5k a/c. They recommended the 3k. I was told (by Camping World) once bought, you can't bring th gen back. So, 3kw it was. Was going to do solar panels for our one week a year boondocking, but that trip has fallen through. State campgrounds here don't allow pets and we lost our dog sitter.
