Yep knew what u were talking about.
I just can't remember if I cut it when I had it on 120v or if I cut it for 12v side.

I believe you cut it for 120v.

So leave it for 12v side.

Hopefully someone will chime in "herk"

I won't be able to tell you till I get home.


Doesn't it say cut wire for " x " voltage?

Leave it alone if you are switching the fan wire from the thermostat.
(12 volts)

I have a crusader 295 with a 15000 a/c and my 2 2kw Honda's run my a/c just fine even on hi fan.

My 3000 Honda generator will not keep my Rockwood 2608WS with a 15000 A/C unit running. I can go about 30 minutes before it goes to over load on the generator. Is this normal? Or should I look at what you have done to your trailer?

My mod only helps with starting not running.
You have at best 25 amps to work with.
A/c is going to be pushing 15+
Fridge on gas?
Wh on gas?
Converter draws 2-8 amps

Read this chart.
normal appliance amp draws

Update with yamaha 2000. I could not get the ac to work. The yamaha went to overload mode. I played with the fuses and shut down all but the ac. i do not know the size of my air unit but I'm guessing its on the bigger size. I was able to get the ac to kick on plugged into a regular outlet with my heavy duty cord and adapter in my garage. That has never worked. The delay is about 3-4 seconds. I could not get any longer delay without going over 1 min. I left the delay hooked up as maybe one day I can get a second yamaha and parallel two 2000 for 4000 wats. I figure it can't hurt to delay the fan a few seconds
