Can you safely run your air conditioner on a 20 amp, 120V outlet?

AC on 120/20

A few days ago our magic black box rejected our electrics when I turned the AC on.
I checked the read out and it showed 114 volts instead of the usual 119 or 120, since it was 102 degrees outside I guess we were trying to have a brown out. The first time I've used a volt monitor and I guess it worked. Usually the AC works plugged into a 20 amp circuit.

IF the circuit is dedicated - nothing else on it and assuming your power cord is good for 20 amps. (The 25-30' ETI cord is fine - I am referring to any additional extension cords.) And assuming your batteries are not too low. Yes.

Probably OK to also run your fridge on 120V.

BUT don't run the microwave or the water heater on 120V at the same time. Or much else beyond lights.
