Of course an 8KW generator running whilst going down the road will power 2 rooftops also

And to me, this is the best suggestion of all.

You can also run the microwave and coffee pot and anything else including the TV if desired. Personally I would have hated having to rely on the bus alternators and an inverter for all my travels. How many times did I stop at a rest area or a Flying J for an hour or so? With the genset, I just left everything running, and when stopping overnight at a WalMart or rest area or wherever, I always had A/C.
If I had to choose between a genset and the inverter/alternator setup, the genset would win, hands down.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, a good Reisling in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming:  WOO HOO, what a ride

Richard,

I've been running about 4 yrs now without an alt. I've been using either the gen. or the invert. I still have my OTR air and it works great. So now with the truck 24v alt i'll get back to normal?? I now need to know... 140a or 160a?

Sorry but I can not advise on that. I think either one would be sufficient to operate your OTR air and I believe that should be the main consideration.
