Generators vs. what they will run

I have two 2000EUi Honda generators daisy chained together, but they will not run my 15,000 A/C on my 1990 29' Holiday Rambler Alumilite 5th Wheel.

I hear different opinions regarding 4K being enough. I

n my case, I could only run the A/C on low. What is causing it to only work on low? Other items are not in use at the time either (i.e. microwave, fridge/freezer, hair dryers, etc.).
Breaker box?

No offense, but I prefer an expert electrician or electrical engineer reply.
The rest of us have tons of opinions.

Thanks, John

Welcome to the forums.
No offense, but if you only want an electrical engineer to reply, maybe you should seek out an electrical engineer, and pay him for his advice.

Assuming that your unit is manufactured by Dometic, and is relatively new, 4000 W should be plenty of power to run one 15,000 btu AC unit. At least that is what Dometic says:

https://www.dometic.com/b97fb7b3-584...758792f7.fodoc

I little investigation might help us narrow down your problem. What happens when you go to Med. or High speeds when running the generators? Do you trip a breaker? Is the breaker on one or more of the generators or is it in the trailer? Does anything else happen?

Other thoughts:

Are you able to get up to Med. and High speeds when connected to shore power?

Are the eco-throttle switches on or off during your testing?

Are you confident that your cord isn't damaged, and that any "dongles/dogbones/adapters" that you might have connected to it aren't showing signs of overheating?
