Any time I've run just one AC on 30A my plug/ receptacle has gotten at least warm (even with new trailer). I have to wonder how often this would actually work.

It works quite well because only one A/C runs on the 30 amp outlet, with the other one running independently on the 20 amp outlet.

Not real clear in the OP. Or the post title.

I would like to give appropriate credit for the picture below, but I do not remember who originated it. My thanks to them anyway!

Dutch, That's a picture of the 7K Onan on my 95 Bounder.
In the original article, I included a wiring print. It was originally posted on the Yahoo/Bounder Forum. A copy still resides in the files section, under a different persons handle.

this should really be clarified
its (2) A/Cs
one on the RV 30a, one on the Pedestal 20amp ciruit

it is a 30amp RV

it is NOT (2) on the 30amp breaker

Same circuit can be created with a small automatic transfer switch if preferred.
