Invertor/Generator...which should I buy?
I am new to the game, and just purchased a Baja 12E. We will be going to a lot of places that do not have hook-ups, and we live near Houston, TX, so going without AC is not an option. The dealer installed an Airxcel 48000 AC unit, and I cannot find any specs on the unit as to BTUs or energy needs. However, I did hook up a Champion 4000/3500 watt generator yesterday, and it handled the load from the AC no problem. However, that generator is LOUD. If I use it at a campground, no one will like us on day two. So, I started looking at inverters like the Honda and Yamaha, but the 2000 watt systems will absolutely not handle the load, the 3000s will also likely fail (from what I've been reading...and they sure are expensive), so some folks seem to hook up two 2000s using a parallel kit. Sounds good, but I cannot see where the outlets on the 2000s have a receptacle that will work with the Baja 30 amp hook-up. I'm also concerned that even if I used adapters, the existing receptacles on the 2000s are not intended for pushing that kind of power through. Can anyone help me out on this? Any ideas on how to make the 2000s work in parallel with an RV hook-up? Or any other ideas on what I can do to get the power I need for the AC without upsetting the neighbors? Thanks!
