Remote generator

What kind of generator should be used to run AC in 2019 JayFlight BHS?? Iím not sure a Honda 2000 would do the trick..

After looking for months I went with a refurbished Champion 3100-watt inverter, and I'm real glad I did. Mine came in a factory box without a scratch on it. The remote start is really nice... start it from inside the TT day or night. It's a little heavy, but I can load it at my age.

Thanks Riverman - if I understand correctly, did you mount that gen into your trailer? I’ve thought about doing that as well only the cost of the install would be quite costly. And I suppose I’d have to go with a 3000 watt to run the trailer AC system, etc. Deserves some research..

Keep it in the back of my truck under a cover.

I have a 28BHS and it has the 15K air conditioner. I knew I wanted the Champion Inverter Generator and I knew I wanted remote start. The question was between the 3100W and the 3400W. I decided to go with the 3400W because I have the larger air conditioner (15K vs 13.5K) and didn't want to take any chances, and also the ability to have extra power available for other things while it's running. I have no need for the dual fuel option. The noise difference, weight difference, and cost difference was small to none, so I went that route. It's been great.

Hey thanks much! That’s exactly the route I’ve been looking at, that same generator (3400) for the same reasons. I appreciate the feedback!

I also have a Champion 3100si with remote starter. It's a great machine and has no problem powering up anything in my rig. It's fairly quiet. I agree that it's a little heavy (96 lbs) to lift into my truck bed but I usually have someone around to help. They are reasonably priced and very reliable. To me, it makes a lot more sense than buying 2 Honda 2000 to run an air conditioner.

I have the champion 3400with remote start. Love it only drawback is small fuel tank. Otherwise love it. I have 2 air conditioners in mine. Only run one at a time. Use at high altitudes all summer in Colorado.
