Do we need to install any sort of soft start on our AC unit for our 2023 Scamp 13 in order to run off of a Honda2000 generator?  What are other people doing?

Honda 2000 and A/C

My Honda 2000 will run my 2005 Scamp A/C or my microwave but it will not run both at the same time.  Therefore I sweat for the 3-5 minutes it takes to cook my dinner.   ;>)

Yes...

The start up peak exceeds the generator capacity. You will need the soft start. Once running,  the generator can handle it's lower running demand.
