Yes, some older unts, epically larger ones, (15,000) draw more power.. Some less.

Today by the way I was sitting there watching TV, Both the above running, and the TV, 2 DVR's 2 Digital converters and other background stuff.. Tripped the park 50 amp, the two A/C's are on different legs. 4th time it's happened in 2 days but last time I was cooking with electricity..

I know all to well you know this very well but you might want to take a peek at the connections along the 110VAC path. You know the screw posts in the transfer switch, CB's, and the plugs/receptacles come loose with vibration over time. No need to risk a fire for a simple check when things are tripping like that. Just a pleasant reminder.
