The August issue of Trailer Life has a article about installing a "soft start" on the AC.  It covers the topic well.

I agree with your actions and assessment 100%. It gets to 90's here, and I have verified your conditions. If and when I can't pass my test I will apply the easy start. Until then I'm fine. AC is a low priority to me. I have other things I want a small genset to do, that's why I stayed small. Appreciate your input.

And I agree with you 100% on multiple uses for a smaller generator.  I never lift more then 50 lbs anymore, one herniated disk surgery was enough for me. For me, when it was clear my existing generator wasn't going to be able to start the a/c, it was a choice between getting a second Honda 2k to nrun in parallel and the easy start. That choice was pretty obvious from both a cost and weight basis.
