Hi all,

Does anyone carry a generator that runs their aircon? I'm looking at buying one, but there is so many on the market.

Thanks

Mark

You need a big one to run an aircon, at least 2KW, maybe more. It's not the running which is the problem, it's the extra power required to start it up.

I don't think the extra weight is worth it and a lot of people camping hate generators so expect a bit of flack.

I bought a Honda handy 3KVa unit - I found the 2KVa just a touch to small.

I would guess, as in the topic, an airconditioner  ::)

I have a 2019 Topaz with a Truma aircon, I have since been advised a 2.2kva generator will do the job.

Thanks

If you check the thread location, we are in the Topaz section. The original poster has a Topaz listed as his camper as well.

Hey mate, bought mum a portable aircon to put in the annex for those long trips around Xmas. She doesn't use it a lot but when she does need it, it's their for her. The 2KVa was just a tad to small, the 3KVa handy is just a perfect fit for the front box on the MK111 and easily runs the aircon and any thing else she needs. Cheers
