AC1 is a 1500W electric heating element that will function when plugged in or on generator, AC2 is also a 1500W element. With both AC1 and AC2 on I have had no problem taking a long shower in my 2016 DS.
If you only have AC1 on I think you will find that a problem. It is just not enough to keep up under most situations.
What also can happen is if you had AC1 work at one location but at your next stop had problems, you may find that the water pressure is greater at your second stop. Or also the water temp could be lower requiring a greater temp rise. If you are hooked up to the parks water supply and it is at higher pressure it will of course have more GPM at the shower head and put more demand on the heater and, with just AC1 on it, may not keep up. Put both 1 and 2 on and you should be good. Or you can put the diesel burner on and take a shower for days if you wish.
