I have found great deal on a JD3200.
Any experience to share? Does it pull an A/C fine? Need it for boondocking.
Thanks

We need more information to comment. An internet search for JD3200 results in circuit breakers, and large industrial generators costing over $10,000.

I imagine this is the one he's talking about.

I don't know anything about this particular generator, but it does have a decible rating of only 58.1, so it's not a loud commercial unit. Plus, since it's an inverter generator, it should provide the clean power necessary for sensitive electronic equipment.

Sorry for not posting enough info. LindaH's link is the one I am referring to. I went ahead and bought it. Hour meter shows 1.2 hours, unit looks new, paid 900.00 for it.
According to ( www.deere.com - follow workshop link) website it will run a 15 btu A/C,Fridge, and microwave, i assume all at once the way it was written. Does this sound feasible? I mainly need it for a 8k btu a/c unit, which it did great with.

Sounds like you bought a good genset for camping! Continuous amps is 23, adequate to power a 15k A/C easily, with about 8 amps to spare. Watch out though, start-up amps for your A/C unit are near 20, don't have any large appliances running when you start the A/C. This appliance/amperage chartis useful for figuring exactly what appliances you can safely power from your genset.

When boondocking, run your refrigerator off propane. That leaves the generator free to power your A/C and perhaps your microwave...whether you can run both at the same time depends on the size of both. Give it a try to find out.
