Hopefully, you can try running the airconditioner at home with the generator before lugging everything to the boat. My Honda will run the 4500 BTU airconditioner but will not run a 7500 BTU airconditioner. I had planned to use the airconditioner on the boat but there are too many vents to plug up so the fumes would not enter the boat. We found a wind scoop provided enough air in the cabin at night. We ran the airconditioner at marinas but found it made the cabin too cold and turned the unit off in the middle of the night. This was in August South of Tampa.
