Thanks. So to be clear, the genny REALLY bogs down. On of my firends actually thought it might stall. I think he was exaggerating, but you get my point.
I've been using generators and power equipment for decades, so believe me when I say this is more than a minor RPM drop. The fan in the TT actually kicks off briefly when the compressor is kicking on, whereas on shore power there is no problem at all.
The Yamaha 3000iSEB is a 2800W genny with a 400W surge, so I think that I am right up against the top of the power curve when the compressor kicks on. I'd rather find a solution (even if it means a bigger genny) rather than push the Yamaha hard all the time and have it crap out in the middle of nowhere.
