Bought the Yamaha 2400is in June. It runs my Carrier 5AC with no problems. Two weeks ago while beach camping on Galveston we had to move the trailer to another beach 20 miles away at midnight. Upon arriving at second location we were greeted by swarms of mosquitoes. It literally took me 2 minutes to grab that Yamaha and get power up, a security cable locked on it, and the AC running. That's not a moment when you would want to cary two units out, hook up a companion cable and start up. On the negative side of the Yamaha it ran til about 5 am so a tank of gas won't get you through the night. That's where add on fuel tanks come in handy.

Two Honda 2000s linked for us. They run the 15,000AC, the microwave, the hairdryer, the toaster but not the AC & Micro at the same time. Link em together with an external fuel tank and they run all day, no problem. Run one or two together and they're still quiet. Easy to lift for those with back problems.

I recommend one with an Onan motor. We have used cement mixers for years with these motors and they are very reliable, but a bit more expensive. Definately worth the extra.

Just purchased 2 Yamaha 2000 tri-fuel inverters from US Carb. First one arrived yesterday and the conversion looks nicely done. Gas, propane, or natural gas, runs on all three. Like others have said, one for the winter and two for the summer to handle the AC. Only 44 lbs each, very easy to carry.

I have the Yamaha 2400ishc and love it! It runs my ac and even ran it up in high elevations in Colorado. One was better and cheaper than two for me. Starts on the first pull and very quiet. In Colorado a family walked by and complimented my Yamaha not the Bambi.... A first.
