bb32, it sounds very unlikely to happen as the power need will just increase with additional charger-batt-inverter lose, unless you take more from batts than you replace it. I run my Vector Turbo 12,000btu from my 2000eu for one year now, and I'm ready to dispose it on a garbage. The Honda is really good charging batteries and running our freezer, but when we run the AC, it scream so loud I use it just when absolutely alone on anchorage, and unity siting on dingy at least 10' away. Charging batt plus freezer, runs 14 hours on a gallon, but AC last 3,5 hours on each tank. Since it gasp and sometimes goes dead, we set temperature the lowest possible as not to cycle on/of. I'm looking for a more powerful generator for my needs and now considering Onan, Kohler or NortherLights.
