There have been several threads asking about which generator will run which A/C unit. I thought I would start a thread to consolidate that info into one thread for the TCU Thread.

Please list your:
1) Generator model.
2) A/C make and BTU/hr rating.
3) And the maximum altitude at which you have operated you’re A/C with your generator.
4) Whether your generator will run your A/C in "econo mode".
