Portable gen sketchy with A/C
Looking for a little input. We have two air cons on our 1999 coach. I can't say what size they are, as I don't know. They are ducted. Is there somewhere that they all list the amperage draw that most of them list it?
We have a propane generator, which runs everything fine. But when we go to the race track, there is no way that the propane will last all weekend running the air. So I have a Champion 3100 inverter gasoline unit. So far I have loved it, but sometimes we come up just a little short.
Generally if the air is running (one unit) non stop, we are golden. But if it is cycling, it will sometimes trip the overload on the generator. Then I get to get out of bed and turn off the gene, and restart. (That seems to be the only way to reset it). I have taken to leaving the fan on all the time, so that the startup current isn't as great. But still sometimes it trips. I don't know how much the single door fridge pulls, and the converter. We turn off the inverter.
Any suggestions? Maybe run the fridge off of propane, as it won't eat up that much propane, and will lessen the load? Just thinking out loud.
