Yamaha 3000 with boost

David,
We too were looking for a generator to handle our 13,500 BTU Dometic AC along with other appliances. After combing all the forums here and elsewhere we decided on the Yamaha 3000 with boost, to handle the start up of appliances. We haven't received it yet but when it comes it will be retrofitted to be a propane/natural gas generator. No more stinky gas or monthly start-ups. We know it will weigh more than a couple of 2000s but the trade off for us was worth it. Hope this gives you more food for thought.

I own a 34 Limited with the Dometic 15000 A/C with a heat pump. I also have a Honda eu3000 that have used for AC for 4 years with no problems. With a prevoius AS I had the Coleman 13500 unit and the Honda worked fine. I trun the fridger to gas when running the air. I also do not use the auto throttle mode when using the Air. I love the Honda. It is very quite and fuel efficent.

Sinemaster 3000

I picked up the SINEMASTER 3000 on Ebay. Paid a little more but seller was one of the few that had the unit in stock ready to ship. You have to be real careful on this one. Kipor markets similar units under the heading Camper-Mate. The Camper-Mate series don't provide a clean enough voltage and may harm more some sensitive electronics equipment such as the satellite receivers and ham radios.

I purchased a Honda EU3000i and have not looked back. Your neighbors will appreciate the quiet running unit as well as the added feature of being an electric start engine. As prevoiusly mentioned, the 2 EU2000i's in parallel is a great set-up in my opinion.

Good luck,

Actioncraft

I just bought a new eu3000 honda generator and a brand new 13,500 btu low profile air conditioner. Everyone told me the generator was big enought to run the air conditioner. When I turn the air conditioner on it may start and other times it will overload the generator. When it does start it may run for a few minutes to an hour and then it will overload the generator. Someone said they make a device to start it easier. Does anyone know what this device may be? thank you

hi newt'

the "device" is a hard start kit (really should be called an easy start kit)

this is described in many of the genset/ac threads or gAgoooogale it.

IF the water heater, fridge, microwave, battery charger or other high draw items are running...

3k is marginal at best for a 13.5 a/c.

cheers
