I figure it's the type of generator I have since I've tried both of them and each one kicks offline. I want to purchase the Champion 75531i 3100 watt inverter generator to run my AC while dry camping. Do you think this model will handle the load? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...dp_o_pd_nS_ttl

BTW Turbs, thanks for the advice a couple months ago about installing a hardwired surge protector. I did mine exactly like yours and it worked like a CHAMP!

The newer ac units have them already. It only helps it start. I have the Champion 3100 and to test it I ran the ac, tv, and microwave, and even kicked the fridge in, that's a lot of load but it ran.
