Pets keep cool in 5TH wheel

We have two large dogs and sevseal grandchildren that travel with us. There is not enough room in the truck for both children and dogs. The dogs are in cages in the 5TH wheel.
Has anyone ever had the A/C on with a generator in the back of a truck?
I ran a seperate power cable from the braker panel for a 30 amp generator plug.
I have two Honda 2000i units.

guys on the skoolie forums do that all the time. only thing is the placement of the generator. needs to be not in direct wind or the gusts could starve the air intake and shuts off.

It is kind of RUFF for man or beast in a moving TT or 5th Whl.

Maybe the grands and the dawgs could take turns riding in the truck.
