Two 2000w inverter generators with parallel kit.
Honda, Yamaha, Champion, Generac, Smart Tools to name a few.

The Honda inverter generators are very quiet and very dependable. X2 on a couple of 2000s with the parallel kit.

I was in our local GOING OUT OF BUSINESS Gander Mountain tonight. Clothing was 30% off, but most everything else was only 10%, so I don't think they're really serious about getting rid of stuff yet. Another couple weeks and they'll drop stuff some more.

Anyway, they had 3 2000W Hondas there, but I couldn't figure out if they were 10% off or not. I would ASSUME so, but you know what assuming does.

In any case, if you're looking for a Honda and you've got a Gander Mountain nearby, you might want to check it out.

2017 Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite Generator

If op is looking to run BOTH ac's, shouldn't they be looking at some 3100 champions that can be paralleled?

Here are some refurbished units by manufacturer: half the price of new

Your post is unrelated to this thread about a generator for a Rockwood.
This is called Hijacking or Piggybacking.

Numerous members have responded to your other thread in the Welcome Mat section.
Some asked what year/make/model you have.

So members are trying to help you.

I agree... the two, 2k Honda's (in parallel) are a little light for BOTH A/C's at the same time.

It might work if both compressors in the A/C's never try to start at the same time.

I have same Fifth Wheel but with one A/C. I have a Honda 3000. However, it is very heavy. Two 2,000 and run paralleled will be ideal. Now, I don't know if you can run both A/C units at the same time. When I dry camping, I also have to turn the electrical heater off and run it out of propane, so I can have enough "juice" from the generator to run everything else (A/C, lights, TV, refrigerator, etc., no microwave and A/C at the same time)
