AC in new Lil Snoozy

With the northeast US having 90+ degrees this week, I was wondering how long the AC in the Lil Snoozy will run with a Honda 2000 generator. Anyone with the current model Snooze have some practical experience? Thanks

Well, it will run until the generator runs out of gas. Actually, the 8000btu a/c unit draws about 6 amps times 120 volts = 720 watts. So with this draw and according to your gen specs, it should run about 6.5 hours before the generator will need refueling.

Thank you...this is exactly what I'm looking for. Just enough to get us through a very hot night. Also, I'll be sure to fill the gas can before we stop!

Diane, if you are a member of the Lil Snoozy Owners . Com, you will see my posting of a couple days ago on how to improve the cooling ability of the AC unit.
Best of Luck

They make a modified gas cap for the Honda 2K that you use a portable boat gas tank and hose. Even with a 3 Gal. tank you should be able to run it for 24 hours straight. No need to worry about making it through the night with that set up. With extended running times you might want to take supplies for an oil change if needed.
