I saw a motorhome yesterday with FOUR A/Cs on it, but it's a specialty type RV, a bus RV like the stars have built for themselves. This one is for charter trips to Brownsville, TX and beyond for hunting trips.

I imagine four are needed for that area.

Well it's 106 here in Northern California valley with no breeze at all. I was really wondering if our 50 amp system would run 3 ac. If I could move I would but we will be here all summer

Several guys in the Sandpiper and Sierra parts of the forum have put a third ac unit on their rigs. Put them over the rear bunkroom where the vent was and ran the wiring to the outside and either put another 30 amp or a 20 amp plug on the outside.

In my Cougar 5th wheel I had one AC and it was a 13,500 btu. Not good! Went to Lowe's and bought a 12,500 movable unit for 1/2 cost of roof unit. I had to make a 3" hole at location of unit to vent outside and install a male plug to outside to power it up from camping electricity connection. Worked great , better than crummy roof unit.

A 50 AMP (which is 2 x 50 AMP) service would easily support 3 AC's with lots of capacity to spare but I like Golfmedic's and Loren Turner's idea too, no need to cut into the existing wiring.
