This is what he said and this is what I was referring to. I did not need any special gas caps or suck fuel from a separate gas tank to run all night.

So, the 2000's will run all night. So ..............back up.

Sorry about the miss understanding of your question. The 3000is is heavy and if I still had my TT it would be either front or aft mounted. A front tower rack would be the best option since the rear can really bounce. How did u run your 2000 all night not in econo mode to power your ac? All the ones I have seen in campgrounds that run in full mode have the cap with the gas tube to suck from a back up tank. I borrowed one from work and it was a crap shoot to start my 1.5k a/c unit. It will work on a smaller ac but not my 1500 btu. Also if u have a heat pump unit it draws slightly more power

When I called Camping World In Harrisburg to see how much they would charge to install a hard start capacitor, He (service manager) said he heard they burn up the AC motors.

Gens In Wyoming

Hello all,
I have run my 2 Honda 2000 gens hooked parallel at 9000 plus foot elevation and never had issues running my a/c (13,500 unit, I know its not the 15,000 that I now have), microwave, water pump and led lights. I personally like the portability of them. I mostly (99 percent of the time) dry camp. I run my gens an hour in the morning and an hour in the evenings to top off the bats. But, I do run them sometimes longer for the a/c to cool off during the day time if I am in camp.

Also, check out Micro-Air - Products. This reduces the start up current. Great for dry camping with smaller gens!
