There were other campers around with loud generators also which got to be annoying after 4 nights of listening to them. The champion would NOT run both a/c and when only running one a/c it struggled when turning the hot water heater on. Im still searching for a generator in the meantime.
You will be hard pressed to find an acceptable 'camping' generator that will run both a/c. Also, why don't you run fridge and water heater on propane? While I prefer 2, 2000 units, I have several friends that run their 15k a/c, converter, lights, and TV with a Honda 3000. Of course if you want to use a coffee pot, or blow dryer you have to turn off a/c with the 3000.
