You might want to check out the Champion on the following thread. It is on sale until tomorrow and will run everything you have. I posted on the link that I personally tested this against my Honda 2000i and they are extremely similar for sound. Only downfall is the weight of the Champion. I have listed my Honda on Craigslist and have already made the order for the Champion.

I have no idea but it is their statistics so I can't suspect them. I crank mine monthly and use it to power a electric weed eater. I pull it around in a wagon. I have forgot it was running on several occasions it is so quiet.

EX. don't run the mw and coffee pot at the same time. Hide the hair dryers!
Will a 2000 run a 8000 watt AC?

Jim maybe someone on here that has a 2,000 watt can answer your question .i have a Yamaha 2400is that I experimented with and could get a 15k btu unit to run at an elevation of about 950 ft above sea level.and it was struggling ! Once it started it was fine . Most items that have motors takes double the wattage to start. A 2400 might be a better choice for power and still keep the weight down.for a 8k btu unitThe 3k is great just way too heavy for an old guy like me. Maybe someone on here that has a 2k on here can help.

I researched this last year and never found a good answer. Then ended up buying a Yami 2800. Though its not too big to handle I would like a 2000 if it would work.

When testing out the system I was able to have all the lights on and run the AC, MW and furnace all at the same time without even hearing a flicker from the generator.
