Questions on dual a/c on greyhawk

Hello, I am currently looking at purchasing a 2018 Greyhawk 31fs and was considering adding the dual 11k a/c units. I am wondering if it is needed and if anyone already has this system that could tell me how much other appliances that can be used while running both a/c as it is still only 30 amp. First post and hopefully many more as my wife and I are looking for our first RV. Thank you. Also on a side note should I opt for alloy rims?

Congratulations on shopping for your first RV and welcome to the forum.

Lots of friendly folks here and with lots of helpful information. I'm sure Greyhawk owners will be along with information for you.

I'm in Texas but I will tell you this....We will never own another RV with only one AC. At least not in this part of the country. And with AC units the bigger the better. These RVs are not, for the most part, well insulated.

I would not even think twice about it, for just over 1k I sure would add the second a/c unit for all the reasons others have stated and a great resale option.

We have the same system. We got the Alante as the Greyhawk was too far out of our budget, and had a bunch of extra "stuff" that we didn't want.

The automatic electric control system balances the load. As an example, if both the ACs are running, and somebody starts the microwave, the control system shuts down the compressor on the rear AC. Pretty neat!

Ok, great! Thanks for the info! I feel more comfortable about going with the dual ac unit now.

we have the big Greyhawk with one AC. Never again. Even in the high 90's in the midwest, the coach would be unbearably hot.

go for two

Ok, thanks. My stupid dealer tried telling me that I didn't need 2. He even acted like I was dumb for even asking about it. He told me he had a 2017 Greyhawk 31fs and the one ac did great even at 100 degrees! I figured he was just trying to sell his on lot 2018 model to me since it only had one ac. So glad to hear the comments on this forum!
