Roof A/C's

Can I run my roof a/c's off something other than unreliable generator?

You need a reliable, clean AC voltage source to power your Air Conditioners (or anything else AC). The two options are shore power or a generator. What did you have in mind?

I have no idea, just wondering. Thank you for your response.

If your generator is 'unreliable', you should probably get it looked at.

The question should be why is your generator unreliable

You may be able to use a portable 3000 -4500 watt inverter genny. There far more to chose from now .
There tons of comparison and review vids. Generac just came out with 3000 watt that's supposed to be quieter and better surge support than the Honda. Heard one as walking by it at camp several days. It''s indeed very quite maybe less low putt putt exhaust drone than Honda or Predator honda clone . Generac has slightly more fan like hush sound.

Supposedly you can run them off a 4000 watt solar system. (But it costs about $10K).

Best answer other than shore power is a reliable genset.
