2017 Hurricane 29M Second Air Conditioner Install

Seeking any kind of information that anyone can provide on the installation of second air conditioner over the bed. Can I assume (yeah, I know) that the opening will support the weight? Is there any chance that this model is pre-wired for a/c? I have read that when adding a second unit in a 30 amp RV it will need its own 20 amp breaker and separate cord to plug into 20 amp outlet.

If anyone has already done this, I would appreciate any guidance you might offer.

Thank you.

My coach was wired for a fan in the bedroom. You can remove the surround for the vent and check for the wires. Mine were 16 ga. Not to much trouble to pull 3 - 12 ga wire down the chase and over to the power center. I converted the coach to 50 amp with a Parallex Power Center (5365), transfer switch and Progressive Industries EMS-HW59C. I had Iron Horse RV here install a Coleman Mach III PS so the 4000 watt Onan could run both A/Cs. Wrestling 95 lb A/C on the roof is too much for a 79 year old. Now I can run both A/Cs, the water heater and the microwave at the same time.
