I think what some have done before in this situation is to add another, separate 20 amp line dedicated to the 2nd AC.

if you don't have 50 amp service, its hard to see how it would be much of a benefit. You are aware that it takes 50 amp service to run 2 AC's at the same time.

Yes, I am going to run a separate 30 amp line just for this unit. Otherwise I don't think it would work. I've seen several online, ranging from $450-880. Has anyone had luck ordering from AdventureRV.net?

Just an fyi you don't have to run 30 amps. You can do it on a 20 amp circuit. I ran a 30 amp cord to a seperate 20 amp breaker. I did it because i already had a 30 amp cord so it worked out cheaper that way for me. If you are starting from scratch then you could just run a 20 amp circuit and use the breaker on the pedestal as your protection. My brother had a 2nd a/c installed on his motorhome and thats the way they did it. Check around locally on buying your unit before ordering one. You might find it cheaper through a local supplier than having it shipped. Good luck with your project. It really is not that hard to do once you get the wiring done.
