The Adventures of Airstream Mikie

Generator blues...

Hired a professional electrician to check out why my Yamaha 2400 generator will not start the Airstream air conditioner even though other Airstream owners claim that it works for them.

Still don't know why it works for others, but we know that it will never work for my Airstream air conditioner because it draws more juice to start than the generator puts out.   The unit needs 48 amps to start!  However only 24 amps will run everything simultaneously.  That's good to know.  So if I got a generator that put out 3,000 watts continuously it would cover normal operations, but still not start the air.
