Generator usage

I have a Sabre 31RETS - it is a one AC unit. I have a Cummin Onan generator Homesite 5550. We will be doing some dry camping, will this generator work with my TT?

I have a Generac 5500 Generator and it runs my trailer fine. I can only use 1 A/C and I keep the water heater on propane everything else works fine. Had to get an adapter to plug into the Generator cost me about $50.00 but worth it.

I see no reason why it wouldn't work. Just to be safe try it out before you go. I did with mine 2x before i went to the beach (Assateague Island National Park) & never needed it for the AC. We had perfect weather cool when we were at the trailer & hot on the beach. It helps you remember to pack a funnel for refueling etc.

If 5500 is running watts you'll be fine.
