Recommended Inverter/Generator for AC Unit on 26 Travel Trailer


Inverter/Generator i have read some reviews and my question is without going overboard when using one of these the main purpose is to keep the A/C unit running i have a 26 travel trailer the running watts are what a guy needs so what is the best bang for the buck along with a good warranty which also means someone will really be able to fix it if its broken not just pay for a warranty that gets you no where if you follow me. Thanks for your help

Running watts definitely plays a big role in determining the correct inverter/generator, but one other thing you need to look at is starting or surge watts. When you start up your AC unit (and other things) there is an initial surge of power needed to do so unless you have a start capacitor that lowers the starting watts needed.

The best generators come from Firman as they have great warranties and options for their generators, but if you're looking for a lowered priced option with a good warranty then the etrailer generators are hard to beat.

If you have a start capacitor for your AC unit then I recommend the 3,200-Watt inverter/generator which is available as a remote start # 333-0003.

If you don't have a start capacitor for your AC then I recommend using the dual setup which is available with a remote start as part # 333-0003-2-0007.
