Will the 2100 model handle an air conditioner in a RV ??

Asked by: Marchaleeo
Depends on the BTUs of the air conditioner, what else is drawing power (like your charger/converter), altitude... Generally this size of Genny will struggle to start a 11500 to 13500 BTU Air conditioner but some folks have had luck, especially if they have installed a Hard Start Capacitor system on the AC.

Will this unit run a Trailer AC 13500 btu It’s rated at 1500 watts when running but wondering about startup

Asked by: Spencerr64
Hi, The W01781 is rated at 1700 running watts. You can do a quick calculation to determine the wattage output of the AC unit. Watts=Volts X Amps. I recommend moving up to our 3000 watt generator, possibly model W03083 which has a nice remote start. FIRMAN Friend

Can it operate a 15 amp wood splitter/

Asked by: Samuel56
This generator would be at the very top of its running watts. 120V X 15AMPS = 1800 watts. It would be best to move up to our 3000watt inverter

How long will this run at full usage?

Asked by: Cheetah625
Truth is most users never pump this bad boy at full load, it's usually getting 10-12 hours for majority of end users - it does depend on the application but the feedback so far has been very, very positive. Thanks for your questions - Big Country

Whisper Series Gas Inverter Portable Generator - 1700/2100 W is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value inverter generator I bought this generator to power a 1500W heater and lighting during power outages at home. Usually starts after 4-5 pulls. Built quality is OK but the sound output is slightly louder than Honda eu2000 units, the only other inverter generator that I have experience using. Definitely a value buy at half the cost of Hondas and Yamahas. The included cover is a nice feature for storage in my dirty garage.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from As the saying goes, you get way you pay for. I bought this generator on sale and it seemed like a "no-brainer". However, the unit I received had some over torquing on several screws for the case, which made the unit appear used. During operation, it surged or hunted in the RPM range when any load was applied. It was also quite loud at high load (90% or so). I couldn't overlook the surging RPMs, so I returned the unit. These problems could have been isolated to my unit as reviews seem very positive for this generator.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Starts easily, and o too heave I bought the generator to use with our travel trailer Nd wanted a generator that would be east to start and not too heavy. ELL this one took care of both my wants. After putting the oil in and gas in the tank I thought I would pull the cord to start it slowly to get the lubricant circulating. To my surprise it started on the second pull. So I’m off to a good start with this little generator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Value - Free Cover! Quiet, quiet quiet and a powerful little Inverter! Bought this gen the beginning of summer used it for a couple fishing trips, 7 weeks ago pulled it out for a power outage, bought the 3300 - connected them together and have been running them non-stop ever since - part of Halifax that got hit with Dorian and have had spotty service ever since, so we have been basically livng in our camper until we get a steady stream of service - This Firman has been a steady, reliable, and incredibly quiet stream of Power - their tech support team is the best, I was a little nervous connecting the two gen together - shouldntr have been - they walked me throughy it in 2 minutes and was off an running - with these two together could run what I need in my home but we are kind of enjoying the camper and maybe its a little retirement practice - im getting close - closer with these firman's running everything I need and more.... a/c now the heat (of course), fire place, microwave, we have a heated toiled and floor - yea thats great and it runs all that and my snore machine and cleaner, shoot - with eveything we have plugged in, has not slowed down for a hot second!
