I generally perform my due diligence on any purchase I make and feel that I have been suckered on this one. My bad. (Hard start, time delay fans, etc... I know)
Just venting,
Well it might run the AC and you just have too much other pull from accessories. I know my converter pulls quite a bit. I have been successful running my AC on a 2200, but I throw every breaker but the AC. I then start the fan and let it get going, then turn on the AC. It has no problem starting when I follow that sequence. Hope that helps....

Just picked up a 2000 Yahama for a friend and it seems like it can be paralleled. Asked a dealer about paralleling with a Honda, which I have, and they said it wouldn't work. Friend got a great price, $888 for the 2000 inverter. Probably won't run his AC, but will take care of everything else.

I just picked up a Yamaha e2400ishc and it does start/run the 13,500btu A/C unit in my TT. While the A/C is running I'm drawing about 14A total with a couple of those amps draw from the TT when idle (microwave light/timer, stereo, Co2 detector, etc.), so there isn't a lot left to run anything else while the A/C unit is running. I did turn all the TT lights, the frig and stereo on while the A/C was running and the generator didn't go into overload mode.

I'd also add that the Yamaha 2400 is about the limit of what I feel comfortable lifting and moving solo. I'm no Spring chicken so the 70lbs is about the most I can handle without concerns about screwing up my back. If dollars were no issue I would have gone with getting two smaller/lighter units that you could parallel together to start/run the AC unit.

As Terry mentioned, if your 2400 isn't starting a 13,500btu AC I would check to see what the load on the generator is prior to turning on the AC to insure the generator isn't being bogged down by other loads other than the heavy load when starting the AC unit.
