1996 Itasca Suncruiser 34' - V10 Ford - Generator Question Roy 7-17-17  
We are looking at a 1996 Itasca Suncruiser, however, it has 30 amp service and a 5500 or 5000 Onan Generator.

Should a 5500 Onan Generator be capable of running 2 roof ac units at the same time?
Will a 30 amp service run two AC units at the same time?

What would be required to correct the issue?

Thanks

The hitch is the 30 amp service

5500 generator should just barely run two SMALL AC units but not start both at the same time.

5000 Probably not

The 30 amp service will not, it will run 1 at a time and the rest of your RV

So you need 6000 or more watts and a 50 amp service.

This requires the generator, new transfer switch and power center wiring and so-on. With out genset a couple grand.

Good Luck
