Generator invertor

I want to get a generator invertor. What size do I need for a rock wood signature ultra lite 8315ss. Will a 3000i be good to run ac and some other things?

Welcome to the forum Sbob, I see it is your 1st post.

As a new forum member I must ask if you did a search for the answer to your question?

This topic is discussed almost daily on this forum and there are literally thousands of threads on this subject and literally thousands of opinions.

If after searching you don't understand or cannot find your answer, please let us know.

You'll need to have an idea of what you want to run when on the generator so do some research on your rig and determine the things you want to power up.

Keep in mind a 30 amp shore power connection provides 3600 watts.
A 50 amp shore power circuit provides two circuits of 6000 watts each for a COMBINED 12,000 watts of power.

As was said there are thousands of threads and posts here, asking the same questions.
But you need to tell us what you want to run, how heavy of a generator you want, what price range you want.
A 2000w inverter generator will easily run everything except the a/c and only weigh 50lbs or less.
