3rd A/C in larger 5th Wheels

I am interested in the North Point 387 rdfs. I notice that it has the option of a 3rd A/C unit in the living area. Living in the hot climate down south, that may be something to consider.

I do have a question about this option. Can all 3 units run at the same time on 50 amps?

I have a 2018 Seismic with 1 drop-in A/C unit in the garage, 1 heat pump A/C central unit in the family room and 1 A/C central unit in the master br. I am able to run all 3 at the same time on 50 amps.

Are you able to run all three with the on board generator?If so what size is your generator?Much additional noise from the AC,s.

I recently saw a TH (non-Jayco) with 3 A/C units recently and it had a 50A cord and a second power cord (20A?) that I assumed was powering the 3rd unit. The connection appeared to be factory. I may be wrong about the use of the 2nd power cord but it's the only use I could figure.

I wonder if it is possible to drop a third unit into mine.

I have the same unit. After spending 2 weeks at Myrtle Beach for July 4th this year we would not have needed one. Our 2nd AC is in the bedroom. We stayed very comfortable. I would doubt you could run 3 ac’s with the residential fridge.

Agree...our 2 A/C' in our 40' 5ver are enough in the warmest weather we've been in and that's the low 100's.

We have a 2018 Designer 42 foot 5th wheel with 3 ac units and residential fridge. Unfortunately I donít have a direct answer for you. We were out camping recently in on 90+ heat and didnít feel the need to run all 3 units at once if that helps. Granted Weíre were in the Chicago area and the sun isnít quite a strong this time of year. I would try it but we dropped it off for service. We only have a 50 amp plug.

I'd probably get it. We have two AC in our smaller unit and they run all day when the desert temps are over 100F (in direct sun all day). When it got to 105 on day the inside temp was over 80.
