New Generator, New Question

Just bought a generator for my 42' 5er (2015 Wildwood, 356QBQ) It is rated at 4,000 watts surge, 3,250 running watts.

Anyway, I am wondering if this will run BOTH my AC units, if I start them at separate times?

Has anyone had experience with this?

No, you will only be able to run 1 AC at a time. If one is already running the start up amperage on the second one would overload the genny.

No it will not.
Dometic recommends minimum of 3500 running watts for one a/c.

That gennie puts out 27 amps @ best.
