Apparently this was not correct. I am sure if I had both units running running in tandem that I would not have had a problem.
Thank you again for your help!
You can run everything, just not at the same time. Not long ago, we hooked a Honda 2000 up to a trailer (neighbor at the race track back in November) with a 13.5 A/C and it started and ran the A/C. Now he couldn't run anything else but it ran the A/C.
You will have to try different appliances to see what can and can't run at the same time. The microwave will most likely not run with anything else, same for A/C when only using a 2000 watt inverter. Even a standard coffee maker will draw more power than the microwave (Kurig works though).
Like already stated though, restart the generator and make note of what you did. I've shut our trailer down more than a few times...live and learn! :-)
Congrats on the trailer and enjoy!
