Hi Bob. I also have a trailer with 50a.
In a 30a site, I find that I can't run both air conditioners without special procedures (see below). And, I can run any two of:
- Air conditioner
- Electric water heater
If it's hot and all I can get is a 30a site, I have found that I can run both air conditioners, as long as:
- I run the fridge on gas
- I turn off the breaker for the converter
- I leave the rear A/C fan on low
- And don't run anything else, like the water heater or the microwave.
After dusk when things have cooled down I shut off one of the air conditioners and turn the converter back on. The batteries can carry the 12v
load in the meantime.
