Both Roof A/C units on same leg (Raptor)

Have a Keystone Raptor bought new. While using it boon docking last trip and running on the generator for 3 days one side breaker on the generator tripped. First time I had that happen. I realized both AC units stopped. I reset and all came back on. I looked at the electrical panel and they put both roof AC units on the same side. Is that normal? I was thinking of swapping one to the opposite leg with the WASHER/DRYER breaker. That seems better. Am I wrong in my thinking or is that the normal setup to put both AC on one leg?

High Amp Load Circuit Breakers should be staggered ---fed from different buss bars

Breakers/wiring was not done by an 'electrician' but by a floor jockey being paid piece-mill

Yes, typically air conditioners are spread across the two legs. I'd change it.

I have 3 HP's so 2 need to be on the same leg.

It's caused no issues so far.

That's what I was going to say, if anyone has 3 units, then 2 have to be on the same leg

Oop's, just re-read your post.

Tripping gen breaker. Us with 3 units have at least 10KW generators, so, likely larger breakers.

Thanks all.

Thank you for the advice. Load wise I knew it shouldn’t be like that but wondered if there was a particular reason they did it that way.

They probably have all the other major electrical draw appliances put on the other other leg so then it equals out
