Sometimes we run with just the windows open, sometimes just the cab A/C, sometimes with both the cab and roof A/C. It has to be pretty hot for me to use both A/Cs, but I do it for the dog in the back.

Yes the generator runs off the gas tank until the tank get below about 1/3 empty, then it shuts down. That way the generator will not run you out of gas, you have to do that yourself.  :lol

The RV ac is powered by the generator. I see you are looking at the longer models so this wouldn't apply but I believe the units built on a Sprinter chassis have a propane generator... diesel truck, propane genny. The Ford is gas truck, gas genny.

PURCHASE  AWAY FROM HOME  welcome,,   We purchased our PC2350 out of Seattle (we live in Houston)  I think you could get someone from the forum to go check out a vehicle in the area. I went and checked out a 2551 at our local Camping World for someone,, they sent me a $50 gift card from Starbucks,,,  covered my gas..  time was no problem was fun.     Both RV's I have purchased  were used... The first one I paid a local  RV shop to inspect I did not have enough experience....  There are some dealers who will pay you to fly in and purchase... you can really get some good deals on used,, I would love to buy a brand new unit but money rules haha

Take a look at a Thor RUV. Nice size, but not made as well as a Phoenix.
