OK this 2000 watt generator can run a AC

Looking at 2200 watt from Home Depot. And would be great if it ran my AC.

Looks pretty impressive at first but in his other video, it dies at 27 hours.

2000 running or surge?

It's only around 16.6 amps.

A 2200 watt is roughly 18 amps

13.5k dometic draws 18 amps to start and runs about 12 - 14 amps mine has been clear up to 15 amps in 90 degrees heat and humidity.
Remember you have a converter that runs 24/7 @ 2 - 8 amps.

i've always been able to run my 2007 23SS's Dometic 13.5k a/c, with my Honda 2000. pretty much runs the same as this guy's. can this Hyundai be paralled?

and the specs for this show 65db! YIKES, that's high for a 2000w inverter generator. the Honda starts at 53db.

and the Champion 2000w can be purchased for less money than the Hyundai and it can be paralled.

would like to see what this Hyundai does at elevation though.
and did they rate it at 65db, when on Eco or at full throttle?

I'm gun shy so I'll stick with my 3600 SIE Boliy. Cost lest than 2 Hondas and has battery start. It's DB is only a couple off of the Honda. I even run my 15000 btu AC. Least I'm not going to worry about burning or blowing something up by using under rated products. Later RJD:trink39:

It would be this one. Be mostly for camping in the fall while hunting in State Forests without hook ups. And a couple times in the summer. So would use the AC a little during the day to cool off. No running generators at night in the State Forest
