Thumbs up Honda Eu2200 runs Air Conditioner

I just hooked up my new Honda EU2200 generator to run the AC. My Flying cloud 30 (2015) has 1350 and 1500 BTU AC units. The new Honda will start and run either one! I tested this at Sea level. I am using propane with the Hitch Mountain conversion hooked to the Airstream low pressure port. My inline ammeter showed 1,580 watts runing the 1350 unit. The fan drew about 500 watts and the AC motor bogged the generator for an instant before rpms were right back up. I was able to run with eco throttle on and the engine ran at less than full throttle. The Honda is rated at 1,800 watts continuous. Interestingly, the 1500 unit drew less—1,550. Go figure? Apparently the standard Dometic soft start is satisfactory for this combination. I am very pleased with this.

50 AMP Dual AC
AM Solar 570 watts
