Can I wire my gen for full power out of the 30 amp twist lock. If so how. I cant find a schematic. Its a temporary gen Im using while building coach. Coleman powermate 5500.

Doubt you can easily pull more than 30 Amps out of the 30-amp connector. But the manual does clearly say you can use the other 20A outlets in parallel, up to the total generator capacity. So your easiest solution for construction may be to run one of your AC's off a temporary cord.

Be sure that you use a 12 AWG extension cord on the duplex outlets if you are going to max out the power draw on the outlet. Do you have your AC distribution panel installed?
