Adding a second a/c to a 30 amp camper.

Starting my thread with a little background and a few pics.

I have a 30 amp sabre 5th wheel that I'm adding a second a/c to.

Parts list to date.
Dometic 13.5k brisk air II non ducted unit.
Non ducted interior control panel.
20 feet of 12/2 with ground wire.
Black furrion 30 amp outside receptacle.

I decided to use my spare 50' power cable to power my second a/c .

I also went with the higher profile a/c as height will still be under dot height requirements.

How are you going to install a circuit breaker?

I'm going to buy and install a single curcuit breaker box in the basement near the furrion receptacle.

Won't you have a problem finding a pedistal with 2 - 30 amp receptacles?

Nevermind, you could use a 50 amp with dogleg for one of them huh?

Decided that a non ducted was the most straightforward easiest way to go since we are looking to buy a new unit next fall.
With one child left in the house the bunkhouse is no longer needed.

That's the plan!
All the cg's we stay at have 30/50 amp boxes.

Couldn't you use a 50 amp cord and split off the second hot lead into the second breaker box after it enters the RV? Or would it confuse Progresive EMS?

The second a/c will not run thru the ems.
