Thanks all! And I was mistaken about the size of my A/C unit. It's a 15000 BTU not a 25000. My furncae is 25000 BTU.

Anyway, it sounds like a 2400 or similar should do the trick. The 6500 I was looking at is quite heavy and not necessary from what I am hearing.

Thanks again!!

We went the route of two Yamaha EF2000iS generators. We've only had our setup about a year and have only used both once when we needed the AC. Other than that one gen seems to work fine to run everything else. The main attraction for me for these is how quiet and light they are. I felt the same about the Hondas just was able to get a better deal on these.

This is what we use! Love it and if your a good sam member you cant beat the price at Camping World. The beauty is if you get the extended warranty and have to trade it in with in 3 years, you get a brand new one on the spot and can add a 3 year to that. See where I'm going with this, lol. Its not that loud. It's price outweights the quietness of the Yamaha's and Honda's.

Please oh please, spend the extra couple dollars on a good quiet Honda or Yamaha genny...

I'm just back from Chicagoland speedway, dry camping in the infield. If I see another of those non-enclosed red noisemakers, I'll just shoot it! Or cut the fuel line. Last year, our next door nieghbor had a champion, a big one, and seemed to think he needed to run it 24/7... :(

Just a for instance... Friday morning, I'm sitting under my awning. My 8000 watt Onan Quiet diesel is going full bore, buth a/c's running. A Bounder next to me, same same.

Guess what? The only motor I could hear was a 3500 red open champion, 200 feet away!

A guy we ended up spending a lot of time with had something called a "kipor digital sinemaster" I think? it was around 4000 watts, and fully envlosed, looked like a chinese copy of a yamaha. He swore by it, and it ran non stop for 4 days, and is very quiet.
