Most RV rooftop A/C units require 1700-1900W to operate in hot weather. Are you wondering if your 2000W generator will be able to start and run your A/C with EasyStart installed? Unlike the Honda EU2000i, many generators call themselves 2000W, but several do not have the steady-state capacity to sustain output power above about 1700W. Even the Honda EU2000i can sometimes suffer performance issues due to carburetor issues, spark issues, bad gas, or even high altitude, thus resulting in it even being unable to sustain 2000W of output power.
To help our customers answer this question, Micro-Air has often prescribed the use of a combination of test equipment and a special pigtail that allows you to tap into the current being drawn from your generator. We have assembled this necessary test equipment, along with this test pigtail into a new kit that is now available.
- Multimeter with probes (to measure live voltage)
- Clamp-on Ammeter (to measure live current)
- Special test pigtail for 120VAC 20A generator receptacle
