Why skimp on a generator?
Wouldnt a properly sized one be trouble free and last longer?
It seems to me my standard Honda EU3000is is as small as I
would want to go in the summer time. When my 25yr old
13k air con kicks in it initially puts a full load on the Honda engine.
I would not want less HP.

In case anyone is planning to buy a 2800 sight unheard, IT'S LOUD AS HELL. My Yamaha dealer hates that thing because it is labeled an RV generator by the Marketing Department, but is nothing more than a construction grade generator.

If you don't have an A/C built in the last few (3'sh) years (that already has a start capacitor), you can have one installed. That's not only good for your generator, but for the A/C compressor motor also.

Do you have specs on the cap and how it should be wired in, or who would know?

This will give you an idea of what's involved. A good dealer that is qualified to work on A/C's should have some experience doing this.
