We have 34FTfifth wheeler and obviously need a generator that is quiet and powers air cons etc.Can you please tell us what size or kva we need. It is all very confusing when different generator people give you different answers.
Thanks for your help.

more info required such as watts input for all items you need to run/operate at any given time...

eg a 3/4 hp aircon will not require same size generator as a 2hp etc etc

lights and other apliances add up as well

A 2kva will do the job ok, but a 3kva Honda would do it with ease.

You say 'air cons'.

How many and what type. You may need a large RV type.

Not bad but we need the Watts or KW. Also see is if lists the start up watts or amps.

Have you got only one a/c fitted ?

There are two air cons. One in the bedroom 13500 BTU but this one can not be run at the same time as the primary air conditioner. I guess that would be with battery power. Unfortunately the rig is still down at the Tweed so I dont know as yet what the kw,s are and dont know how to convert if possible. I believe we also need another battery. This is all very new and confusing and certainly nice to know I can contact an expert on the whole electrics thing. I will endeavour to ask the guy down in NSW.
