ACE 30.2 50 amp running on 30amp

We are going to take our first trip in the RV in mid June. Our ACE 30.2 is 50 amp with 2 AC's. The first campsite has 30amp only. Does anyone know what to expect? Are we good if we run only one AC unit? Our doggies are going with us and will be in the RV most of the day. Any info is greatly appreciated.

Our last coach was 50 amp with 2 ACs. Connected to 30 Amp, you can run one AC, but not two, you may not be able to run the microwave with the AC on. You'll find that hair dryers pull a lot of amps, likewise with small heaters.

When you flip a breaker, you'll know you overloaded the system. You didn't say where you are going in June, but if it is hot enough that you need 2 ACs, you could unplug and run your generator, it can handle both AC units at the same time.

Enjoy the journey!
If all else fails, read the directions!!
