Hello and welcome to the Forum,

You have asked a question that is a good one but we need a little more information. What are you trying to run with the generator? Do you need AC? What about other things like TV or space heater/ fireplace.

Looking to assist in a solution

Cheers

You will require at least 7kw Generator to run 2 15k BTU AC units

That will just work, you did not state built in or external. Sorry about that. If you run propane as fuel expect to use a lot to keep 2 ac units running.

Just thought I would weigh in I have a Diesel 6000 Onan and it works everything, two ACs and TVs not sure if I tried the ACs with the microwave, I will try that next time I go out.

All the Diesels are the same size so at least I know they will fit, I bought this one used and had it gone through,

Is your rig wired for a Generator ?

Just Diesel I figured my Truck is Diesel so I carry some extra Fuel when we are traveling, can use on either one.
The Diesel Gen will run almost forever on the take I have.
