if you are going to be mostly on 50amp 'full 100amp service' most of the time, at least in the 'hot' months, then YES, get the third AC unit... it will never hurt!

now, if you don't see 50amp RV resorts/parks too often, then NO, don't, since you won't have enough typical power to do anything else while running on the generator, and 30amp campground/park service won't be hardly enough to run two, much less three.

Why not get a portable ac unit and use that to do a quick cool down?

A proper install comes with a Power/Electric Management System which sheds loads if you start getting close to your amp limitation.

Without that, my hard-wired Progressive Industries display shows my wife and I what each leg is carrying. We keep each leg at less than 50amps. We did pop the breaker a couple of times at the campsite pedastal.

We recently needed to manage down to 30amps and do it the same way. We watch the EMS display and manage to that. We’ve been running 2 A/Cs without issue for a week now.
Thanks Doug.

I was actually wondering more about what happens when you adapt down to be on a 30a service so I'm glad you addressed that. Three are out of the question at that point for sure.

As mentioned, I suppose it really has more to do with where you use your R/V. Here in the North East, we rarely use one A/C let alone three and 50a services at campgrounds are like hen's teeth.
