Would 13.5k AC work on one Honda i2000?

For the small upgrade price, the 15K is a must have. I don't know why its even an option. Seems to me that the standard should be a 15K, but you can deduct price and order a 13.5 if you want.
If that is the case then there would seem to be a significant difference in the two units. It just does not seem like 1500 BTUs would make that much of a difference though but it must. On mine it was only a $100 option so the 15K upgrade was a no brainer.

On my 23MBH if the outside temps get above 90 the 13.5k a/c can't keep up. I wish I would have gone with the 15k.

In my opinion spend the extra $ on the 15kAC and the thermal package.
There you go. Perfect real life comparison.

Look at it this way, a 15K can do anything a 13.5K can do. So there is no downside to going with the 15k other than the very small cost increase. When it's 100 outside you will be glad you have the extra 10% capacity.

My opinion. If they offer bigger, get it. If they offered a 20k AC, I'd have it. ALWAYS better to get too much than not enough, and ALWAYS cheaper to get it from the get go than to have it installed later. If you live in the south, a 13.5 AC should be outlawed. 15k ac should be standard, if not 2 or 3 of them depending on rig.

Thanks everyone we will go with the 15k but there is no thermal package option for the SLX line.

We set our thermostat such that it will run the fan constantly during the night. We only hear a slight click when the compressor starts or stops. We have a 26BHS 2014.

Same here. I like the white noise throughout the night (especially with a 3 year old and almost 1 year old) and the moving air is more comfortable to sleep in.

Having a 2006 29bhs in Michigan we surely appreciate the 15k air conditioner on those 90 degree with 90% humidity days so I would certainly go for it. Also keep a small fan running to help keep the air circulating It really helps
