It's also dangerous for the lineman that thinks the power is off, and electrocutes himself with the electricity you are providing.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Power Coming

Thanks again for all yall's help you guys are great as always. Yes we shut the main breakers off. The linemen are working on our power this morning it should be back on this evening. We have been sleeping in the AS with the ac which has been nice. Luckily it really has not been that hot overall. We were really fortunate that things were not much worse for us, we have seen a lot of great people helping one another.

We're still off here since 2PM EDT Sunday a week ago. You had a 36 hour head start on us, so maybe if you get yours on today, we'll have ours on Tuesday or Wednesday! LOL!

Glad to hear you're close and things were not worse for you!

I had one of those 5000 watt construction type generators, a Campbell Hausfield. It would NOT run the Coleman A/C on my coach. The voltage would drop down to 98 volts and trip the breaker in the A/S. I now have a Generac 7500 watt genset with the 30 amp 120 outlet and it works great.

You may be able to rewire the generator so that it has both circuits in parallel. DON'T DO IT AT THE OUTLETS - LOTS OF FIRE AND SMOKE.

Basically a generator is a motor being run backwards. Many motors will run on either 120V or 240V depending on how they are wired. Generators are the same thing.

First, look in the manual. Next, try contacting Husky Technical support.

A quick look at the schematic will tell you if the unit can be rewired.
