What he said. I live in NM and have two 15K units in my 5W, one will keep it comfy. If your ordering I'd get the 15, if it's on the lot with a 13.5 I would not discount it. Maybe a hybrid owner will have more on what the heat does in a that type unit.

I was confused as I thought I had posted a reply and found the question twice ...once w x17z and once w/o

Mod note: this thread title was in 3 different locations. It is now combined into one.

Welcome to JOF. Sounds like either one will do the job. It will likely run most of the time when it's hot out without the Gizmos and they may not help to much.

Our fist TT was about 18' and the 13.5 did the job, but it was working when camping in 100 plus temps. For the few extra bucks I'd go with the larger unit.

I am in a similar position. Small upgrade cost from 13.5k to 15k but what would the upgrade mean is regards to the generator requirements?

Plugged in to shore power the bigger AC is an easy decision. Running the bigger AC off the generator is the question. It seems like 13.5k BTU is the high end of a lot of generators. I'm looking at the Champion 3100 and most reviews say it will push a 15k AC unit but may struggle at higher elevation.

We have its big brother the 23b, with a 13.5K ac. On issues with it keeping it cool. We have been out in 194 degrees, within an hour of setting up, it cool and very comfort.

Not to smart of a smartphone, must have been auto corrected, because I'm never wrong.

104 just felt like 194 in the sun.
