What size AC? A Honda 2000 will run a 7,000BTU unit. A 10,000 BTU unit can run on that Honda with a "hard start" capacitator installed.

Let me know if you are in the market as I have sold quite a few Eu2000's to fellow OSO'ers.

My 2000 will start and run my 10k unit. Also runs the micro once the AC is running.

A buddies 12k unit won't start on his single 2000, has to parallel 2 units
