Agreed, 50 amp. You can never have too much electricity, not enough, not good. I know an over simplification, and technically not right. But you get the idea.

I ordered mine with 50A and the second A/C. Living in South Carolina, with a 36' camper, we needed the second one. Not only that, but the main A/C decided to blow warm instead of cold in NC. So glad we had the second A/C and a box fan to push it into the main area from the bedroom. I listened to a wise man when he told me 50A and 2 A/C. May not need the second one, but what if you do????

I always see people writing this but we have never tripped a breaker in our RV. It's 30 amps and I use the AC (all day) and the microwave at the same time. As we "speak" I am running the ac and a convection oven to bake cookies. We are also able to run two space heaters at the same time without tripping a breaker.

That said, I'd get the 50amp option. You don't have to use the 2nd ac (or additional electrical power) but it's nice to have the option and at resell, it might be worth (a little) more money.
