I do heat my water with the air running, but I "cheat" and use load support with the Magnum inverter/charger. Generator is the Yamaha 3000 iSEB.

Fair point, I am not running them both st the same time, that would certainly be way too much. The struggles related to the ac was bc I was feeding house, then power strip then extension cord during hurricane power outage. Ran extension cord direct to ac and it ran fine on eco mode. Hot water heater problem was bc I inadvertently had large wine cooler connected to gen in addition to water heater. Usually, just the water heater by itself for 30-45 min works great. It draws somewhere close to 2000 watts
