Okay a few questions( understood everything for process you said)

30ampson two legs (iirc) do not know what this is?

Can this 6.5kw run two roof ac at 15000btu with modifications?( this is my ultimate goal for air conditioning and if not what recommendations would you propose to run 2 roof ac units?

And lastly what is the converter you speak of technically called so I can google image it

Actually it should be approximately 30 amps on "two" legs. In other words your generator has two circuits each with it's own circuit breaker. One circuit feeds the house 110 ac system just like shore power. The other circuit feeds the rear ac. At least this is the way my old 310 used to work. I believe the earlier coaches may not have had the transfer switch for the generator to control the rear ac.

Yes although if you have the rear ac transfer switch no modifications are needed.

Univolt.

Somewhere on Airforums I have wiring diagram sketches of the AC wiring on Airforums of my old 310. They would answer most of your questions.

The attached sketches are for an 84 310. They won't match exactly what your 82 has but at least you should get an idea of what to be looking for.
