Just an observation based on my experience. I have a 7CKM21-RV which has two 120V breakers. I connected the output from those two breakers and fed it into my 30amp panel. Seems to work fine. It will run two roof airs.

But I've noticed the voltage regulation isn't very consistent and have heard that complaint about these older 7K Kohlers. Seems like the hotter the ambient temperature gets, the lower the output voltage gets. I know how to adjust the rheostats on the regulator but it will run all day at about 123 volts until things start getting hot; then the voltage will work its way down to about 108. Of course the current increases as the voltage drops. I usually only run one AC with it and seem to get by.

FWIW - Fred

Fred, that's what I decided to do. Being as the two hots are joined and jumped before the breakers. Speaking of breakers, does any one have a lead on replacements the two on this unit are shot. 25amp, thanks Wink
