AMP draw of 2001 Palomino Sabre

I have a 2011 Palomino Sabre 31RETS with one AC 13,000 watts. Does anyone know what the total amp draw is for this 5'er? We are going dry camping and need to get a generator and need to know approx. wattage needed.
5'er has a 50 amp plug.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated and needed.

I also have a 2011 sabre and we dry camp several times a year.

We bought an open frame generator that is capable of providing 30 amps.
It is loud but where we dry camp it's not an issue as many others have loud gennies running all night.

I guess you have to decide if you want to run everything or just battery charging.

And if noise is an issue.

This is a pretty common chart for average usage.

Correct the year in your title from 2001 to 2011 and you might get more "current" involvement.

50 AMPS is approximately a 5500 watt generator.
30 amps is approximately a 3500 watt generator.
Generally you can run a 13kBTU air conditioner off a 2000watt genny...but 3000 watts would give you room to run some other small stuff at the same time and put you close to a true 30amp capacity when dry camping. Some of the generators can be daisy chained so you can start small and add on capacity if you find you need it.
