Question about Dometic 57915531 Air Conditioner
A Duo-Therm 13.5BTU Brisk Air unit will pull 14 - 16 amps on average in High/Cool mode. Depending on the ambient temperature. Since the unit is 120VAC, then we know that the unit is going to need at least 1920Watts to run. There are other things in the unit that will affect the generator as well. TV's, Microwave and Converter all pull amperage on the generator. It is safe to say that if you are using a 4000Watt Generator, then you will be fine. If it is just for the AC and nothing else, then a 2500Watt generator is more than sufficient.

Your A/C unit is 13500BTU/hr which converts to basically 4 Kw/hr. When running a A/C unit from a gen you need to over size the gen to handle start up of the compressor. Go about 50% higher on your gen wattage. About a 6Kw-7.5 Kw will work for you.
