BTU's to WATTS or Amps
I have a new camper.
It has a 13,500 btu A/C and I need to know how big of a generator I need.
I was gonna go with the 2.5 kv and it only has 20 amp plugs on it.
Thats fine as long as my AC doesnt draw more than about 15 amps or so. I can put a 30 to 20 amp adapter on it.
I know if the amperage gets too high I could melt the plug.
I aint gonna let that happen.
I just dont know how to convert BTU's to Watts or amps.
I know I could just run it and take a load check with an amp meter, and I may have to do that....
But theres bound to be a formula...
