My sob had the 2nd generator leg tied soley to the rear air. The 1st gen leg ran the front air and the rest of the coach. Nothing fancy, start the gen and the rear air worked. The 6.5 Onan worked fine and ran everything. To get rear air at the campground I installed a standard 110v outlet inline on Gen leg #2 and a standard 110v plug on the circuit that continued to the rear air. With the two plugged together everything worked as the manufacturer intended. At the campsite I unplugged the rear air from the gen and hooked it to a heavy duty extension cord that was plugged into the 15A campground outlet. Air in the bedroom and Momma is happy (which allows everyone else to be happy...)

HiHoAgRV has it right! You could use a magnetric or an electronic relay instead of the manual changeover plug, but you have to prevent 'shore power' and genset power from being on the same line at the same time. The place to do this is at the 'extra' breaker box location, under the rear curbside closet on a 310. Use #12 wire, too. Be safe.
