1998 National Seabreeze- air conditioner

Will the Air conditioner run on generator alone?
It will run when power is plugged in , but when we unplug it and run generator alone it will not come on.

An RV with a generator will have some way to select power from shore power or generator. On many, they have an Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) that detects power source and switches between them. If you don't have an ATS, then YOU have to do the switching. Usually it's done by taking the shore cord plug and plugging it in to an outlet that is wired to the generator. Check in your shore cord compartment for an outlet the plug will fit. When not connected to shore power, plug it in so you don't have to stop or go outside to use the generator. If the plug isn't there, look for a set up of outlet and plug near the generator.
