That is total amps though??? 50 amp rv service is 50 amps per leg...so actually 100amps total. So op would probably still have some restrictions with a 10k genny, right?
My 6500 genny only has a 30 amp (twist lock genny 4 prong) service outlet on it and so that's what i installed on my house that we use it for. Can't do much with it being total electric in the country (water well and all) but its better than nothing!!
