Nearly all caravans these days have a airconditioner built in, so when travelling around this great nation, particularly up north where the climate is hot you are going to need a generator to run your caravan air conditioner along with all your other appliances found in your caravan. Selecting the right size generator to run your caravan air conditioner is crucial as the air conditioner will most likely be the biggest drawing appliance in your caravan, and on a hot night you want the right size generator to be able to run it.  With all the different air conditioner brands on the market today the average caravan air conditioner draws between 1000 to 2000 watts when running continuously and when it first starts up can draw between 2000 to 3000 watts to get it going.
