This is true, so the real question is not just a generator question, but a generator / inverter combination question.
The Honda 2000 will run the Danhard AC system fine, ...but it will not start the Danhard AC by itself. The Honda 2000 when coupled with the right inverter where it allows powersharing from batteries can also start the AC.
We have the Danhard for the very reason that it can run on batter alone for a while.
We have the Honda 2000 and a Prosine 2.0 inverter so that we can run the AC for an extended amount of time.
