Been looking at generators, instead of getting a 3000 honda, getting 2 2000s. Cheaper I believe, and I can hook up one soley for a/c-heater and the other for rest of bus and charging batteries. I thought I ran my 24' camper a/c and all with a eu20001 before, but not sure. Any experiences with any of this?
I thought about doing that myself but from what I read on mutiple forums seems the 2000w generators usally have problems starting most 13.5k + AC units. It appears some people have had luck installing a Hard Start Capacitor. If your plan is to have both running for AC and just one when you don't need AC will proubly work great.
2K generator will not start up a 13.5Kbtu RV ac unit. My Onan genset is 2.5K and will barely do it. I believe the surge for an AC is 2.3KW just to get the compressor going. If you want to run a 13.5Kbtu AC unit (that is the small AC unit) get a 3K generator. Otherwise you just risk burning up a generator and an AC unit.
