More pics to follow.

As a side note they had a fishing derby the weekend before we arrived ... the winner caught a 18.5 lb rainbow...

Does the A/C kick the overload breaker on the generator when it tries to start?
There is a fix for that if you want or need the generator to power the A/C.

Sundancer 87.....good comments....I knew when I bought the gen.it wouldn't have enough capacity to start the AC unit....I have looked some options...I will need to remove the existing capacitator in the AC unit with either a soft or hard start capacitator..not sure which...my thinking is to buy a parallel kit with another 2000 Watt Champion gen set..then I would have lots of juice to start and run the AC unit.
Is this what you were thinking about?
Appreciate your comments

I was thinking about the hard start capacitor. I installed one on a buddy's of mine. He was trying to start the A/C with a Yamaha generator and just couldn't do it until we installed the hard start.

They are much cheaper of course than another generator and you don't lose the room any where.

For my money I'd try the hard start first and then go with another generator.
