A generator that will run the A/C - What size generator? Our salesman said the A/C will pull 21 amps at startup and then drop to 11 amps. How many Watts?
The second is what size TV can the inside and outside bracket hold? I guess weight would be the important thing here.
Thanks so much!
The most common for your situation is 4KW. You can get by with a 3KW but, if your running the AC and the decide to use the microwave, while the coffee pot is on, your AC will suffer low voltage on start up. Do that a few times and you'll be replacing parts in your AC.
One very popular way to get 4kw is with a pair of Honda EU2000i units. One standard EU2000i and one EU2000i Companion. Use just one when your not needing the AC, or hook them together for 4kw total. Very quiet and long run time.
Compared to an Onan 4kw, they, together, weight half the Onan and cost less too. Shop around, you can buy them as a package with everything you need.
