Yes, I can actually run my 15k btu dometic rooftop on Yamaha 2600 (which is not an inverter quiet camp friendly model).
I installed the easy start kit and tried it on my Honda 2000.
It starts ok. But with just my a/c and one interior light on and the 12 converter load built into my power panel, my trailer is pulling right at 13/14 amps on the 115v plug.
So the Honda (which is rated at max 13 point something amps running and 16 amps starting) shuts off after 20 min on overload.
I bet the newer Honda 2200 would work for me or maybe a new Yamaha inverter 2400.
But the heavier Honda 3000 or the much cheaper harbor freight predator 3500 can definitely both run one 15k BTU a/c, and basic lights, tv etc. (you would probably have to shut a/c while using microwave)
They’re just a beast to move around loading/unloading at around 100lbs.
