Predator 3500 generator

Anyone have any experience with the harbor freight predator 3500 inverter generator? Wondering if this would run travel trailer ac. Trailer is 50amp and ac’s are 13.5 and 15k

3500 watts should run one of the AC units but not both at the same time.

Check the generator, most have start up power but running is a bit less. I bought a Champion 3400 Inverter from Home Depot, quiet and will handle a 15k rv a/c with no problems

Predator 3500 is great. I love mine. But, it won't run 2 unless you have a load manger like Grand Design's Momentums have or a product called a Easy Start. Or you run 2 with a parallel kit.

Will run one, not both of the A/Cs.

Easy enough to check. Volts X amps = watts. So if your a/c pulls 12 amps at 120 volts, it should run on 1440 watts. Start amps are going to be higher, so your gen will probably need 2k watts to start the a/c. Another thing to check is to make sure the gen output rating is running power and not surge power. If you are running the gen at near max power, it may last a day.

I borrowed a 4k (don't remember brand) and it wouldn't run mine, single 15k AC. Bought a 5500 and it does great.

I know a lot of guys using them on the competition bbq trail and the run 1 ac no problem. They are a good buy, and will last a good while if you keep the oil changed. They have an air intake glitch so look up the video to fix it.

When they go bad throw them away and buy a new unit.
