Just Purchased 94 Dodge Sportsmobile; generator advice?

Was wondering how big of a generator we need to purchase to run the Starcool AC system.
Also, is it difficult to charge the Starcool system with new freon?
Thank you!

I was told at least a 3kW generator but it might depend on what version you have. Mine is a Starcool III.

Do a search on Starcool, there are posts wrt generators. You could also call or email SMB they may be able answer on generator size. My van was from Texas so they have all information on it. They answered my question about adding propane after I emailed them underside pictures they asked me to send so they could see if there was an area available to mount the tank and also emailed & sent me manual pages. Sounds like you need the manual pages, which include describing the Starcool system.

It uses check valves tied to the van A/C system so charge would be via van ports.

Also Danhard made the Starcool system. I got some good info from them as well. They can answer your question about the freon.
