To add even more confusion to db measurements, while 10 db is 10X the sound pressure level, loudness is subjective. If you ask 1000 people to turn up a sound source until it is twice as loud, a sound pressure meter on the A weighted scale (one that matches hearing frequency response) would indicate a measured 10db increase. 1 db is about the smallest difference a trained ear can detect. Aren't logarithmic scales interesting?

Even though I have a decent understanding, I still say NO!
Good explanation though, Jon.

Honda 3000i Handi. 77 lbs. dry. The AC needs 2400 watts to start, a 2000 won't do it. Works for us in our 19, but I've only needed it twice.

Another soft start option that might help

"I contacted Micro-Air and asked them about their soft starters, and which one would work with our RV A/C units. I was told: The EasyStart 3T will provide a minimum of a 50% decrease in the Locked Rotor Amp (LRA), bringing the A/C amp spike to (or below) 31a"

Inverter Generator information: youtube/LongLongHoneymoon, this guy has a link and has tested numerous IG's Real time tests, sound testing, load testing, moveability, you name it,
his site is worth looking at.......check it out, and remember is you want clean power for your electronics don't use construction type generators because they are not "clean"..

Hi: All... After camping for 4 days at Boot Hill Country Music Jamboree I really got to dislike Gens. Every one around us had one running most of the day. Phew!!! Smelled like I should have been home cutting the grass and most were cheap noisy units too. Alf
