Considering you'd probably not use the a/c while also using the block heater " different seasons" this is a good possibility.

I can check that. After I shut off the block heater breaker the second AC unit still worked. Also, does this mean that the block heater is also powered by the generator and or shore power when plugged in? I thought the block heater would only work if I plugged in a cord to that pigtail?

Just plug the block heater pigtail into the adjacent outlet.
