I too have a 12k BTU A/C, and notice the starting wattage vs maintaining wattage is north of 2000. If I get that Honda, it would stress out the little guy unless I had two running with the connector cables...and like Cam said may be too much.

Can you let us know what happens when your A/C kicks in to the Honda? Does it shake, drop or rev up? Does it shake? Conch out...?
I've also read comments from folks here that the H2000 will not run a 12k BTU A/C. As it runs mine fine with no indication of hesitation, I always wonder why...
I should mention that it ran fine both before and after I installed a soft-start cap in the A/C which I got for free and thought it might help when other stuff was already drawing from the genset.

I assume you received my PM?
