15k AC and 2000 watt Yamaha Hard Start Capacitor
We dry camp at high altitude and haven't needed the AC. Planning a trip to warmer areas and noticed my AC pulls 1450 watts steady while running, with fridge on gas and batteries disconnected. So before I dropped another $1000 on a second Yamaha 2000 watt generator, I figured I would try a hard start capacitor for $10 off amazon.
Well as expected it didn't work here at 4800ft and 90 degree temps. It is supposed to put out 1600 continuous at 500 ft elevation, so I knew it was a stretch....but the 1400-1450 watts got me thinking. I'll give it a try at Death Valley this fall at obviously lower altitudes and cooler temps and report back.
Now off to spend another $1000.
