Hi, I just bought a pop up camper with an A/C. I have no idea about generator specifications. What would be a good small portable generator powerful enough to run the A/C on a pop up camper?

Thanks for the information. I just didn't want to buy a Generator to small to run the A/C. Had to read up on the inverter generators. I never heard that term before. I am guessing the Honda and Yamaha generators are inverter types based on there size and noise level?? Would a 3000K Honda or Yamaha be sufficient to run the A/C?

I know for sure that the Honda EU3000IS generator will run a 13.5k BTU A/C unit all night. It will run a decent amount of time on a tank of gas and is very quiet.

Unless you want to get up in the middle of the night to either put gas in your generator or answer the door because you are about to get a whuppin biggrin.gif for your hardware store generator then both of these features are worth the cost.

For sure chickenpants knows his generators. I'm pretty sure an investment in an Honda or Yamaha would be a good investment.

From my experience many people would turn to Honda. I it's only ,well mostly because of their reputation with trustworty products at cheap prices. But, from my experience and research, the better generator between the two of them is the Yamaha. Reason number one is because the battery life of a Yamaha doubles the Honda. Reason number two the warranty on the Yamaha's warranty triples Honda. Honda's warranty last 24 months, while Yamaha's last up to 6 years. Check out the full comparison here.
