Husky 5000 watt and Flying Cloud 25?

Can I run my FC 25 with a Husky 5000-watt generator? The FC's plug does not fit the main receptacle for the generator, and even if I get an adapter I'm not sure about plugging it into a 240V, 20amp socket. Here are the specs for the generator, attached as a one-page PDF. I would appreciate any advice.

Is your FC 25 wired for 30 amp service, or 50 amp service.

Usually 30 amp will have one air conditioner, and 50 amp service would have two air conditioners on the roof.

Heck NO! Your trailer is 120v, not 240v. You can only use the four smaller sockets for electrical. You'll need a dogbone configured like this:

Or, an adaptor like this:

You shouldn't use your Air Conditioner when attached via the 20 amp plug unless you have also installed a Micro-Air 364 to reduce/manage the AC startup amperage load.

If it's 30 amp you will only be able connect half of your generator to the coach, which will limit you to 20 amps, or half of your generator capacity.

Plug your 30a trailer cord into one of the 20a outlets on the generator, or one of the 4 receptacles on the 30a power cord that came with the generator.

If you want to use the other 2500 watts of your generator capacity you will need to run a cord from the generator directly to the appliance you want to use. For example, you could run an electric skillet on the picnic bench.

warning - 240 volts

Check the comments above on this. Your trailer is NOT 240 volt.
