Question Turn off Charger/Converter to run AC

I just installed a MicroAir EastStart on my 2005 SandPiper Sport. It has a Parallax Electronic 7300 power supply. I need to turn off the converter/charger built into this power panel to run my AC with a Honda 2000i.


Can anyone suggest how to do this?

Any and all advice and experiences welcome.
Thanx,
Joe

There should be a "charger" listed in the menu, which offers the on/off selection.

Smile Breaker Located (General)

Oddly enough I went back to look at the pics I took of the panel box during installation. Apparently I was too exhausted with the 100F heat that day to notice the blue tape I placed on the "General" labeled 15A breaker. I wrote "Inverter" on the tape a couple years ago, forgot about it, and was too tired to notice it til tonight.


Thank You for your replay. It prompted me to look at the pics I took yesterday.



What Ive learned so far.
Using my new Honda 2000i for power. Running the AC alone, with General breaker off, and nothing else running on AC. My AC pulls 11.4A at 120V. I can run it on ECO but it revs to about 80% of full speed. IMO that is not good for my new gen, so I will likely run the gen with ECO off. Going to run a full 8hr test of my AC and Gen tomorrow. If anything else learned I will post it here.


P.S. The Honda can pull 13.3A full time.
The EasyStart makes AC startup sooo easy.

With ECO off doesn't it just run at full rpm all the time ? All the ECO setting does is lower the RPM when not under a load to save fuel.
