I think my Onan is a 5.5BGM so delivers 5.5KW, does not have electronics but uses a mechanical governor system. I also have 2 transfer switches, one for shore power and one for the genny OEM. The A/C also has a manual household type switch which selects front or back A/C units when on shore power. When genny is running the transfer switch selects both A/C units.

Progressive Industries makes about as good of one I know Of. I didn't have one until a few years ago and that little mistake cost me several hundred dollars. I use the portable Progressive Industries but many like the Hard wired ones.

TWICE last summer my surge protector ($290 from CW) saved me. Once the pedastal had NO ground (open ground) and the other time the voltage showed only 105v. Easy enough to move to another site compared to blowing out stuff on the coach! Money well spent!
