The easiest solution is to be sure the converter is on its own breaker & shutting it off when running the AC. I'd be concerned about the starting surge, which tends to be the biggest problem with running ACs on a generator. The ratings on most generators are peak. For example, the Honda 2000 is called a 2K generator, but actual long term rating is 1600 watts.

In addition, as you gain altitude it takes a larger generator to run the AC. What works at sea level may not do the trick at 5,000 ft...
