Can the etrailer 6,000-Watt Portable Inverter Generators Handle Two Air Conditioning Units

Question:

I have two a/c units on my travel trailer, one 15k btu and one 13.5k btu. Will these have enough power to run them both?

The etrailer 6,000-Watt Portable Inverter Generators part # 333-0003-2-0007 should be enough to power the 13.5k btu and 15K btu air conditioning units on your travel trailer. They have a 6,000 watt starting output and a 5,500 watt running output.

The average RV 13.5K btu air conditioning unit pulls 2,750 watts while starting and 1,250 watts while running. The average RV 15K btu air conditioning unit pulls 3,500 watts while starting and 1,500 watts while running. Therefore, so long as you do not start both units at the same time you should be able to power them with the above generators.

I would however check with the manufacturer to obtain the exact specs on your air conditioning units beforehand.
