The easiest way is to use a portable.. Or two
Honda, Yamama and several other INVERTER generators you can get optional Parallel Kits. two Honda 2000i's (The i means inverter) give you a full 30 amps with the parallel kit or a 2000i and a 200i-companion (the companion is more expensive but the parallel kit is cheaper as part of it is built into the Companion) You can also use them independent.

Honda's have the optional extended run tank as well Far as I know they are the only ones that have that feature.

You can store 'em anywhere you can store 'em Just be sure to lock them down both in use and storage so they don't grow legs and walk off,

I don't think you understand on board gensets. They are all about convenient power. There are no gas cans to deal with. There is no set up. No cables. No storage or security issues. No carrying or handling.
No walking off.
There is just push button convenience. Want power just press a button and you can run both A/C units or anything else.
Yes you pay for that convenience,however with a on board genset your RV is ALWAYS self contained.
@ the OP my suggestion is contact a genset specialist or service company instead of an RV dealer.



Also mom likes the ability of pressing a button on the wall and having power, I enjoy not having to worry about packing, unloading, gassing up, someone stealing it, having to run cords, and the ability to run it down the road or at a rest area for lunch. So yeah different options for sure.

I did debate about solar as well, and an inverter,solar,converter combo but I camp in the woods often and batteries are $$$ the onan option is actually cheaper.

I was debating on having a box made for me... just wasn't sure what all was in this box.
