Elevation 2810 portable generator

I bought a used elevation 2810 that the previous owners removed the on board generator. I'm looking to get a portable generator to use but I'm not sure what size (wattage) I'll need . Any guidance you can give would be greatly appreciated.

I like the two 2000’s Honda generators with a parallel kit which hooks them together for 4000 watts. Or you can just start one to charge batteries. I like them because you can lift one at a time instead of lifting one heavy one. Of course your looking at about $2000 for both. You also have to decide where you will use them because some are quieter that others and some campgrounds require quieter generators. Here’s a video that might help you decide the size you will need.

Short answer: You'll need 3500 Watts or so if you want to run a single AC.

I have had three 5 ers with generators
I needed to install a new one for my Redwood Sequoya.
I bought a Onan 5500 from Norwall and.
I paid less for it than I would have paid for all these portable that you have to double up with to have enough power.
You rig should already be wired to fit the Onan.
Plus you can start it from inside the trailer.
Make sure you get one with the 20 amp circuits.
You will thank me when you start it from inside when it is pouring rain outside.
If you like, I can look up the part number for the one I bought.
Shipping was free when I bought mine.
I t is the generator that the rig came with, and the install is pretty easy.
Let me know if I can be more helpful
