Will this Generator Work for AC?

I am looking to run my AC off this generator. Its a 5000 continuous, 5500 peak. It has 4 110v adapaters and 1 twist lock adapter. It also has a 240 / 120 switch, I know I cant run the camper on 240, but was wondering if I was to buy an adapter for twist lock to 30A style if that would work?

Once you have determined what electrical devices you will be powering with the
generator,connect these devices according to the following procedure:

1. Plug in each electrical device with the device turned off.
NOTE: Be sure to attach appliances to the correct receptacle (outlet). Connect
standard 120 Volt, single phase, 60 Hz loads only to the 120 Volt receptacles.
Connect 240 Volt, single phase, 60Hz loads with a 240 V plug only to the 240
Volt receptacle See Figure 11 tbr a depiction of each of these receptacles.

2. Move the voltage select switch to the 120 V position if you are connecting 120
Volt loads. Move the voltage switch to the 240 V position if you are connecting
240 Volt loads. NOTE: The generator cannot run 240 Volt and 120 Volt loads at
the same time. You must choose one or the other using the voltage select switch.

3. Switch the appropriate circuit breaker to the "on" position. For 240 Volt loads,
switch on the circuit breaker marked 23 A. For 120 Volt loads, switch on the
circuit breaker lnarked 46 A.

4. Turn on the connected electrical devices in the order of the amount of power they
require beginning with the device with the highest rated wattage requiremem.
IMPORTANT: The four 120 Volt receptacles have a total capacity of 46 Amps. However,
the capacity of each duplex plug, A and B (see figure 9) is only 23 A. You will not be
able to draw more than 23 Amps out of one duplex plug.
CAUTION: Do not connect 50Hz or 3-phase loads to the generator.

Having trouble seeing the small pic. What does it say the output is on the twistlock? My guess is yes, it will work just remember a lot of those 5000 generators are very noisy and dont put out the cleanest power.

Please make sure it is not a contractors generator like they sale at the home repair stores. They are very load and disturb people at campgrounds. If you are camping near no one else then have at it.

Looks to me like the twist lock is 240v. I'm thinking (usually leads to trouble when I do) that it's not gonna work. Just my opinion.
