My rig is a 50 amp, 2 a/c units and wondering what I would need for a generator to operate 5th wheel safely when we are away from campgrounds and what brand.

Ok another question, don’t know if you deal with tires. My new 2017 Forest River Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite 5th wheel has Castle Rock ST225/75R15 tires and I read numerous postings that these are China tires and they call them China bombs and they are rated load range D. I am sure we are will be running heavy with all they new stuff. We should be ok with these tires for a while I hope. I am thinking about maybe American made Goodyear endurance tires load range E. Any thoughts.

The 5th wheel came with a grill to hang on the side of the slide out and it has a propane hose to quick connect to the rv, we want to use the road pro grill we have had for several years but I need to adapt from my auxiliary propane bottle hose we was using to our new quick connect on the 5th wheel to about a 15′ hose and fitting to the road pro grill, our road pro has what I think is a pressure regulator at the grill, so do I need this regulator if I am tapping into my new rv quick connect which I assume would be coming through the rv’s pressure regulator ?

On the slides measurements:
Left large slide 151″ outside edge to outside edge. (Has stove, refrigerator, couch)
Left closet slide 69 1/4″ outside edge to outside edge.
Right large slide 115 3/4″ outside edge to outside edge. (Has dinette set, tv, fireplace)

Thank you
Randy
