Fleetwood Bounder Air Conditioner Size?

I have a 1997 Bounder 36S with two rooftop ac units. The units appear to be 13.5K BTU each. Does anyone know if these are the factory sized units for my coach.
I ask this because each unit pulls a little over 16 amps and I only have a 30 amp service, so I can never run both units at the same time in order to cool down the coach enough in the hot Summer months.

The system uses an Intellitec main control unit and thermostat. When I run both units, they'll both run, but the compressor only runs on one of the units. I know it's supposed to cycle between them somehow, but it doesn't seem to ever cycle the compressors from one unit to the other.
Knowing that the current draw from the two units exceeds the total rating of the motorhome is why I began to think that the rooftop units are not the factory size and maybe should be a couple of 11K BTU air conditioners instead.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I believe they should be 8,000's Mine are and they work great. I have the same system in an 04 Fleetwood Flair, 34 ft. I can run both airs and converter some lights and a tv with no problems.
