Generators, AC, & 30 or 50 Amp power

I do not know much about generators. We purchased our 2015 FC 27FB with 2 AC units this spring. Can a generator power both AC's = 50 Amp in the Texas heat of summer? What size, recommended type should I look for? Are their places to plug in the 50 Amp or 30 Amp shore power cord into the generator?

Okay, I'll try again...

50 amps at 120 volts is 6000 watts. That is a lot of generator. Theoretically, you could parallel a couple of 3000 watt inverter generators and be good to go. A couple of hundred pounds and lots of space taken up in the bed of your truck. Not to mention many, many US dollars.

Me, I think I'd spring for a campground with 50 amp service.

Most of us run 30 amp service with a single A/C so a couple of EU2000i units work fine.

Try one of these! EC6010DR

Seriously.. mount in the bed of truck... wire to your outlet... you will have enough power to run your AC's and all your family electronics... (including hair dryers)

Of course they also make other more 'docile' models.... and monster ones, too.
Peace and Blessings..
