Roadtrek 170 with no aux. Generator

Advertised is a 2003 Dodge 170 with a 5000W inverter and 3 coach batteries. Is this a 2002 since there is no Dodge in the 2003 brochure? Is the large inverter and extra batteries a factory option without a generator? If so, how does it work out for dry camping? The ad says you can run the A/C from the batteries, is this correct?

I have NEVER heard of an A/C unit being capable of running off the house batteries. I long ago learned to never say NEVER, however, I'm extremely skeptical. If by some miracle you could run the a/c off the batteries, I'd guess the total run time would be between 2-3 minutes!

Run the A/C from the batteries.....highly doubtful.
