I just came across the following post by Mike G which says that he was able to run a Cool Cat 10,000 BTU off of a 2,000 watt Yamaha generator.

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."
