Cool Cat AC

07' LTV on Chevy platform, why does my Cool Cat AC work well w/ continuous cooling when plugged in to AC but when on generator power compressor keeps short cycling every few minutes loading down the generator. Desired temperature not met.

For better advice, post make, model of generator.
Post model of Cool Cat.

07 generator is no longer capable of supporting the A/C
07 Cool Cat is drawing more power than it did years ago

A/C may be tripping overload when trying to start. There is then a delay of a few minutes before it will try again.

Overload circuit breaker is probably in the A/C system. An overload in the generator would probably have to be manually rest.

Generator voltage or frequency may be low and needing adjustment.
Low voltage can cause a thermal overload to trip in the A/C.

Loose or corroded connections can cause low voltage that will trip an overload breaker.

Any combination of above conditions.
