I run the generator and the roof top air conditioners. I turn the back ac cooler than the front and that way the noise of the ac stays in the back.

When it is really hot we run both. Keeps the DW an driver cool as well as the kids watching TV on the couches.

On warm days when the sun is just heating the wind shield we just run the dash. By the time we figure wich will save us $5 at the end of the day we probably should not be driving a barn on the interstate.

We set the bedroom AC fairly low(68*) and the front at 70* and the gen on auto. We also use the dash fan only to help circulate the cool air in the aquarium that we ride in LOL. This works very efficiently for us. Our gen is rated at .4 gallons an hour under load and I think that's fairly good. The reason we run the bedroom AC cooler is because when we stop, the heat off the diesel heats the BR pretty good.
