Help me understand two ACs

I'm buying a 26U FC.
I know if you get the 30 amp service you get a single A/C.
It says it's a 15000BTU.
Then, If you get 50 amp service, is one A/C 15000 and the second 13500, or are they both 13,500?
Specs are vague.

Asking because a 3000w. gen. will only run a 13,500 unit.

It seems to vary. Our 2015 came with a 15,000 and a 13,500. Some here have reported receiving two 15,000 units. I have not heard of anyone receiving two 13,500 ACs in any recent Airstream. Joe

On two AC unit Airstreams, is the 15,000 btu always the front (hitch end) unit and the 13,500 the rear one?

Are you sure a 3000 watt gen won’t run a 15k ac. It should. And with an micro air easy start a 2000 watt will run it. Just asking, because I don’t know.

Are the two A/C's run from a common thermostat?

If you only have 30A service will one A/C not start automatically or does it have to be turned off?

I will be getting a new GT with two A/C's in several weeks.

Thanks!
