Just an FYI that might get you if you don't know. The Honda 2K is only rated for 1800 W continuous. The Honda 2K can run some small recent manufacture A/C units. The Honda 2K will not power older or larger A/C units. If you have an A/C most people report better results with the Yamahama 2400. If you are going to power an A/C it is important to research carefully. If you are going to camp in the mountains, be aware that generators loose power and capacity as elevation above sea level increases.

Consider asking a buddy if you can borrow a generator you are considering purchasing to do a test to see if it can carry the load of your camper + A/C.

The numbers are not precise because the variable in the situation is the TT's converter. It's always on, and will take current to charge the batteries if they are low.

For the record I have a Honda 2K and Honda 3K.
