Sounds like you have made your decision. But if not, I am another guy recommending to get the 2nd AC unit. Considering the minimal added cost at time of build and the fact that you are in FL I think it is pretty much a no brainer.

We haven't even used our AC unit yet seeing how we only got to camp a few times this fall after we purchased the TT (most of the time we were using the heat), so I can not give you first hand info. Being in MI I am sure we will get by just fine with the 15K BTU unit. But, had we ordered ours instead of buying it off the lot, you can sure bet that would have been on the option sheet.

Your gonna love the BHBE!

Redundancy is good, especially in hot\humid climates. You do not want to be without, should you have problems with one or the other.

We are in SoCal, so it does get hot in the summer, but we camp over half the time near the ocean. Due to weight limitations with our TV, we opted for the single 15k unit and Thermal Package to keep the rig insulted. I'm also wondering whether our 3kw generator will be able to handle the additional 1,500 BTUs.

It will be close, but possibly not. What is the peak/starting watts? Running it wont be the problem, it will be starting it where the possible issue will arise.

We purchased a Generac 3250W unit this fall to run ours (3750 peak) and it starts and runs with no problems.

To run our Keurig machine, i had to make sure everything else was shut off or it would trip the breaker. The thing i kept forgetting about was the dang fridge. Dont have it set on auto, as it will automatically go to electric when you turn the geny on.

We were able to pick up Cabela generator, made by champion 3500/4000 peak with remote start on a Black Friday left over for $309. It runs our 15K a/c with no issues. It will not run both a/c units at the same time but that is fine for us. Watch their ads you just never know what deals come up.
