2015 Windsport 34f cooling on 30amps

Just wondering what experience anybody has camping in hot weather when there's only 30 amps?
I have one A/C on low and and the other one with just the fan on low.

Anyother ideas before popping the circuit breaker?

Thanks

Start the generator periodically to cool the coach with both ACs.

You should be able to run one on high.
Put your water heater on propane and watch what you turn on.
I have a 15k and 13.5 in my 30.1 and can run both by running the fridge and water heater on propane and being careful.
Are you hooked to a campground pedestal?

I can run both, not sure if I kept them on low, and turn off the water heater, hope your refrig is already cool, dont cook, keep your hair wet, etc. Turn one on first, let it run for a few minutes, then turn on the second. I think I was drawing about 12 amps on each side within the coach so less than 25 to the source.

Get an Electrical Management System, and it will tell you how much you are using on each side of you coach circuitry (along with the protection it provides as its primary application). This one is popular, there is another option that may be slightly less money.

I also installed the progressive 30 amp surge protector hard wired. It provides a display inside so I can monitor the amp draw, voltage and any errors that may occur. Great protection product. Highly recommend. I have run both ac's on 30 amp but it's close. I ran a separate wire for the bedroom AC to my rear compartment so I can plug it seperatley into the 20 amp plug on the pedestal when needed. We used it while staying in Cudejoe Key this January.
