One for each and the gen's need to "see" the ground and neutral tied together, you can do this with a plug. RV's don't provide this, a house has them tied together at the panel.

Just to clairify your post you mean an Easy start for each A.C. unit but only 1 Neutral ground bond plug for the two generators from the way I read it.

There should only be 1 N-G bond in any electrical system and the generators are connected via the parallel cables. I just don't want someone getting confused or hurt. I had to reread it to make sure I understood.

Right.

Update: While the gen's now run the AC I feel they do not respond fast enough when the compressor cycles (as it does often). I am going to go by the warranty center (very close to me) and talk to the tech about it. I will update again when I do.

Update again: After further use I have found the gen's do respond fast enough. The problem is after the throttles kick up under load, it is the decrease in throttle that is the problem. The speed decreases too much, it goes way too low. I need to check with the warranty tech to see if this can be corrected. As it stands I would not recommend these generators to run a 15k AC unit. I bought them for backup only so they will be fine in a pinch. If I were looking for something to use often I would go with the Honda's, especially considering the new 2200 watt models.
