20amp & AC

Where I will be storing My Dream when she gets here, has 20amp service in my stall.
Can I run the AC on the 20 amp? I know it's supposed to be there to cool off the fridge, but....

A/C, fridge, and battery charger will just about max out a 20 amp circuit. Do not try to run the water heater on 110, microwave, vaccuum sweeper, etc. while the A/C is on and you should be fine.

And DO use the ETI provided power cord not a "normal" extension cord.
