I can't imagine they'd need electric for anything in a camper being that it was 100 degrees this past weekend. I wasn't sure if the newer campers had air units that drew less power or what. I was under the impression you had to have 2 of the little ones and hook them in parallel to run an AC unit. Thanks in advance.
You are correct: One
little Honda will not run the factory AC. I have not heard of newer AC units needing less power.
However, there are other, lower-power, ways of cooling besides the usual factory installed AC that might
be able to use the power of one little Honda: Fans, Evaporative (aka 'swamp') coolers, smaller (room size) window air conditioners, and portable air conditioners.
