I had a couple people tell me the Cool Cat is a heat pump, and does not work like an AC. That's why I was confused, and thought maybe it had different energy requirements from an AC. I have only started looking at generators, and they usually list what kind of AC they can power. I haven't yet seen any that specifically say what kind of heat pumps they power.
Handbuilder, most of the trial sites I go to are private properties that are dog training facilities in rural areas. They do not provide power, but do offer hoses, mist tents and splash pools for dog cooling. There are a few, more distant trials at fairgrounds, but if I am driving that far away then I prefer to run indoors.
But THEN one of these indoor places, that holds many trials, does not allow RVs on the property at all! Just can't win sometimes.
I am planning on going to a couple of trials in Canada in 2015, and already picked out a likely campsite that offers power, Camping Choisy. That will probably be the only location where I will have a chance to use shore power.
Let's see if my picture will show up...
Cool, it worked. See the cornfields?
