If I had a 13.5 A/C unit that wouldn't run on a 2000 watt generator (Honda, Yamaha, etc.), I would add a "hard start capacitor" to my A/C unit.


You can do a search for "hard start capacitor" on this site and get all the data you need.

My Honda 2000 runs my 13.5K BTU A/C just fine in Florida. That's hot, but low elevation. After testing to confirm it works I also bought a booster capacitor to help it start under marginal conditions but haven't really stressed it.

Some users install a time delay on the fan motor to stagger the start loads of the A/C motor and fan motor. Even if you don't, make sure the A/C itself has a time delay so it doesn't try to kick on as soon as it gets power.

It may not work at higher elevations. I haven't tried that yet but don't plan to. If I need A/C and don't have shore power, I need to camp where it's cooler.
