Contractor Generator and A/C
Has anyone run the A/C off a contractor type genny?
I've got a 4000W 25 year old Colman I use to keep the well, freezer and fridge running during outages.
We go a grand one going on now. Maybe 2 more nights before juice comes back. The better half refers to it as the "Little House on the F****ing Prairie"
I'm not worried about amps or volts. I wonder how "dirty" the output is. I ran a ceiling fan for while last night and it was humming a lot more than usual. I'm not inclined to cook my new A/C due to a crappy output.. I suspect it puts out a lot of transients and spikes.
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated,
