Generator Voltage Question

I have an AC Voltage Meter plugged into an outlet in our 2015 Precept 31UL.

I use it primarily to see the shore power voltage but recently noticed that when I run the coach's generator, while in the safe range, tends to only show about 115-116 volts with a load (A/C primarily) vs the 120 I typically get with shore power.

Has anyone else monitored their generators voltage output, and if so, what is your normal reading?

Sounds to be in the acceptable range. My previous unit was a class a with a 6.5 generac. It was around 121 VAC unloaded and ran around 116VAC with the Air. Generators will all vary, the main thing is it in range of what is expected.

My 35UN has same genny as McGarrett50 has. I see same 114-116 volts with both A/Cs running. I can turn several more things on and still hold this voltage though. Sounds normal to me.

The acceptable utilization voltage per ANSI standards is 110v- 125V.
