18.33 surge amps and 16.9 running amps. Please look at the rating on your a/c to see if its in those criteria, 13000 BTU is probably too large for this little unit but it depends on the current draw.

Generac’s iX Series portable inverter generators are designed to not only quietly operate, but to provide power to a multitude of sensitive electronics. The iX2000 is rated to provide a continuous output of 2,000 watts, and 16.7 amps at 120 volts. We would recommend contacting the manufacturer of the loads that you wish to apply to the unit, to ensure that those loads will not exceed the inverter’s ratings.

The iX2000 will come with one (1) 120v 20A 5-15R duplex outlet. We do not recommend to modify the unit to add additional receptacles; however, an appropriately rated extension cord with additional outlets is acceptable, as long as the amperage rating for the unit of 16.7 amps is not exceeded.

maybe,the initial startup load on a power washer is similar to other high inertial loads like air compressors.inverter generators don't supply much dynamic headroom in their output,dissimilar to conventional generators.if the initial startup current exceeds 16 or 17 amps,no it will not operate the power washer.

We do not recommend using any type of auxiliary tank. The only tank that should be used is the on-board manufacturer’s tank. In addition to these recommendations, it should be noted that the use of any auxiliary tank will likely void an end user’s warranty, in nearly every instance. All units are required to be checked for oil periodically for usage purposes.

Question

Grounding the ix2000?

Some say you have to ground the ix2000. Would grounding really have a negative effect as far as 'portability'? I mean, who wants to run around with a couple of grounding rods and a roll of 10 ga. wire, pounding it in wherever you use, then going through the hassle of removing everything?

Generac requires that the iX2000 inverter generator be grounded according to the National Electric Code, which is always subject to interpretation by the local inspector. Local electrical codes may also require proper grounding of the generator. We recommend that you consult with a local electrician for grounding requirements in your local area.

Generac’s IX series portable inverter generators are not manufactured to be tied into another generator for additional power. Moreover, we do not have any recommendations pertaining to connecting one portable generator to another, as doing so would be considered a product modification, thereby voiding the unit’s warranty.

Because there is no industry standard for testing sound levels on portable generators, we do not currently list a decibel rating for any of our portable generators. Furthermore, as a we do not test for these ratings, we are unable to compare the sound output of one portable generator to an alternative model.

Per the unit's owner's manual, Generac's IX2000 portable inverter generator, model number 6719, should be placed on a firm, level surface when oil is being added. The oil level can be checked by removing the oil filler cap; the oil level should be at the bottom of the threads on the oil fill pipe. Do not overfill the unit with oil, as this can cause high oil pressure that can cause premature engine wear and damage. Please note that any issues incurred to a unit due to negligent service will not be covered under the product's warranty. If you do not have access to your product's documentation, it can be obtained online by using your product's model or serial number for searching purposes via the following link: http://www.generac.com/service-supp....
