Good points I have to agree, as I said up above there after he noted it took 13.5 amps THE GENNY MAY JUST NOT HAVE ENOUGH POOP LOL

My Onan 4000 starts my AC even if the Microwave is running, but its has more surge capacity I bet then some cheap big box store genny rated at the same 4000 I betcha.......

Im sure it either lacks capacity and/or some sort of an unloader problem, but being short on capacity moves right up there after his telling us it draws 13.5 amps........grrrrrrrrr

Fun chat yall

Does your Onan 4000w have only one 110v out?

My 3500 watt RV genny can put all it's power to one 110v outlet.

I'll bet the 5500 watt genny can't put all it's power to one outlet unless it's a 220v out. If I'm right, then he is trying to start a compressor with only 2750 watt genny. Won't work.

Yep, theres ONLY ONE hard wired 3 wire (Hot, Neutral, Ground) output that leads to a 120 VAC 30 amp grounding RV type receptacle.........

Fun chat George, looks like most of us here agree his genny may just not have the "poop" lol (unless a mechanical problem)
