Will watch the video again and try tomorrow maybe.

Hi, a friend of mine said he runs his 13,500 air conditioner with his Honda 2000; But he changed his start capacitor.

Found it. It is about using a 3000 watt generator.

Other. I recently bought a Champion 2000w unit. So far, I'm satisfied with it.

This is definitely a newbie question - but would there be any advantage / difference / or reason in charging my two 12v batteries ( in parallel - when boondocking) with a Honda eu1000 via a BatteryMINDER vs plugging the power cord (with the 110 adapter plug) directly into the trailer? Would one way charge faster or keep from over charging? I'm talking just re-charging, not running anything.

Plugging the trailer in will be much faster, and from what I read it takes days do "cook" batteries with the stock converter.

The 2015 sport manual says it includes a 3-stage converter/battery charger. Since this supply can deliver more current than your BatteryMINDER, you'll charge your system much faster by simply connecting your generator to the trailer's shore power inlet and let the trailer's converter charger your batteries. Make sure your battery disconnect switch is in the On position to ensure that your converter will charge your batteries.
