Two a/c units in a 27' MH! Ya gonna hang meat
Actually it would be a lot easier to install a 15000 btu unit (assuming old one is 12500)

While you are at it. Get a 15K heat pump one.
Still less money then a Generator.

The Onan 4.0 puts out 33.3 AMP and has a 30 AMP beaker on it.

So it will be the same a hooked into a 30 AMP shore box.
The 15K A/C will use 12.9 AMP a 13.5K uses 12.1 AMP.

You may have an issue with blowing the breaker if both Compressors srtart at the same time. Starting Amps will be higher than running amps plus any other loads you have on
