Honda Handi3000i generator

Thinking about buying. But will it handle one of our air conditioners? We have two ACs in our 2015 FC28. Input anyone?

A 3000 watt generator will be more than enough for one AC unit. If you don't travel in the "deep south" or "southwest" in the summer, a 2400 watt generator will also be fine.

I don't know what the specs are for the Handi 3000 or your air conditioner that you want to run. So,, I'll have to just tell you that I have a Yamaha 3000 w/boost and it runs my 15,000 btu air just fine.
Check out the specs for each ( air conditioner and gen) and see if they match up.

The Honda EU3000i Handi will usually handle ONE standard 13,500 BTU rooftop A/C system just fine. Some older systems maybe not, and under extreme conditions (high elevations, above 95 degrees, etc.) maybe not. Ideally, try and test your rig with a demo unit at a Honda dealer to be sure.

The Handi will NOT run two A/C systems at the same time. No 3,000 watt generator can do this...the loads are too large, especially if you fire them up at the same time.
