    WHAT SIZE GENERATOR FOR RV

    How is the generator going to be attached? Is the trailer 'generator ready'? In that case, it should specify what generator(s) are appropriate. Are you going to just plug the trailer into it? In that case, it depends on what the main power rating of the trailer is. For instance, if the trailer is '50 amp' (which it probably is with 2 AC), then you would want a generator capable of putting out 50 amps, or about 6KW. I'm unclear how you would connect the 4 pin 50 amp plug to a generator, though...
