As my Uncle told me on my wedding day, "it is easier to get acceptance than permission".

Wise words!

I used to pull that trick early on in our marriage all the time when my wife left for a week to visit her mom. After a few days back she'd find out about the new 8mm VCR sitting in the home theater cabinet. I got yelled at but 20 years later we are still happily married. I bought her an Airstream to make for it all a couple of years ago

lmao!

Yes, it is a bit of a joke in our group of friends that I do this after 7 years of marriage. The best purchase while my wife was away was a Ford Expedition... the worst is the toy we now call "the divorce helicopter"....

When I bought our 3100W Champion remote start generator (that does power the 15kbtu AC on our 2015), she was home alone and had to drag it up the steps of our house... She was not impressed when I pointed out "well, at least I know you can carry it on your own".. *somehow stays on topic*

Better to ask forgiveness later than to ask permission now...

Last time I did this was about a year ago when I bought a certain trailer hitch (too controversial to mention the brand) while the better half was in Florida, she frowned a little, but all was better once we started towing with it. Turns out she loves the hitch...

Hope she feels the same way about the generator after we use it..

I know she was NOT impressed with my Champion Saturday night.

In my opinion a 31 ft airstream with a 11,000btu unit will be hard to cool without two air conditioners, which will take lots more than 2400 to run.

Admittedly it would seem insufficient, but it does a pretty good job outfitted and cooled as I mentioned above.

I just spent two months in southern New Mexico, the worst day, when it was about 105, the inside temp was briefly 84 in the worst heat of the afternoon.

For the most part the temp stayed in the mid to upper 70s in the hot part of the day. Not too bad for being in full sun parked on asphalt.

I forgot to mention that my wood interior likely helps avert a lot of heat transfer though.

I meant to do so as a disclaimer but I forgot. Click image for larger version

I was on that project, one day I even recorded the temps about every hour or so... But I lost my record..

Well, it turns out that my better half bought new living room furniture today, I told her how much I spent, all she will tell me is "I spent more".....



Guess I am off the hook...

We have the Yamaha EF2400iSHC. Would have had no problem with a Honda. The 2400 was just the right size and weight. Have also ran a Yamaha VMAX outboard and Yamaha Grizzly ATV for years with no problem so I was not concerned about the performance of the Yamaha. No regrets so far. OBTW, runs our AC with no problems.

I am seeing that it runs 11000 BTU Air Conditioners. Anyone using the Yamaha 2400 to run a 13500 BTU unit?

There are lots of reviews on Amazon that say it will, and perhaps as many as 10% that say it will not.

It is a gamble... Although maybe not so much with a hard start capacitor installed in the AC.

A person should read the reviews and weigh them before jumping in with both feet.

I gambled with starting a forty year old not so efficient unit and came out ok.

In the end I am glad I took the risk, although the unit was not entirely without consequence with my somewhat unique setup.

Update to follow!

Improvise, adapt, overcome....
