Hyperlite 2815 generator questions

Anyone know if a 5500 Onan will fit?
I know if you order the generator package it comes with the 4000.

4000 is 173 lbs, 30 x 19.7 x 14.4
5500 is 279 lbs, 33.6 x 22.2 x 16.7

The reason I ask is I can get a very low hour 5500 for less than the 4000. And I may be adding the 2nd AC unit.

My book said my 5500 will only run 1 ac because it takes from 2500 to 2900 to run so you might need to go bigger look to see what your ac takes

Those are Start Up numbers to get the compressor going on AC units WITHOUT a soft-start. Running numbers for a 13.5 btu AC is around 1,250, a 15K btu AC is 1,500. Some newer RV's come with a soft-start installed, you can buy one for $200-300 and you would need one for each AC.
