I was thinking if getting a 3000 watt inverter. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
A couple questions that will help define an answer:
1. Is the AC a minisplit (inverter AC)?
2. How efficient (SEER or EER)?
3. Will you have other large AC loads that might occasionally run simultaneously?
I would also second John's point that there is a substantial difference between a cheap Amazon/Aliexpress HF inverter and a robust high quality LF inverter from a reputable brand.
