2016 Berkshire with 6000 watt gen

Looking at purchasing a 38a-340 but concern about the generator being enough.

Bought same coach two months ago. 200 hours on generator. Today the campground is upgrading power panels so we're without hookups for 7- 8hours. Sitting in the coach now with with generator running in Arizona with both AC's, 2 TV's, washer & Dryer running all while my wife is cooking breakfast using the microwave. Only thing she could do more would be to turn on her 3500w hairdryer! All systems running strong and at 119-120v! Only time the genset revs up is when compressor kicks on or microwave fires up.

2016 38a

We have a 2015 38RB with the 6k Onan, no issues running both ACs, lights, microwave, etc. Seems to be plenty of power.
