It wont work. Electricity does not work like that. you can't double the power just by doubling the watts or amps. there is a lot and lots of other things involved.
I would rewire you camper so that half is run be one generator and the other half by the other generator... SO lights and fridge on one and plugs and heater on the other maybe...

I have a coleman model 8333A8664 a/c unit on a fleetwood camp trailer and was wondering what watt generator would be needed to run it properly?

Because it won't be powering just your AC, I would recommend 5000W. It's that big amp draw when compressor kicks in that will pull it way down, if not strong enough. Take for example the fact that a dedicated 20 amp breaker and cable are the norm for RV's to use for AC now. Double check also that the generator your purchasing will take a momentary surge draw of up to 20+ amps without tripping breaker on generator. I say 20+ because once RV is plugged in or wired to generator, it will be powering any other hydro operated appliances, lights, converter etc that the trailer has on board. I bought a cheapie rated at 4000W, and 3000 running watts, but it kicks out the breaker just trying to start my portable air compressor, rated at 15 amps.

I have an old duo therm in a 1969 15'x8' travel trailer, How many watt gererator will i need to run it and maybe some lights? how and where do i check the watts or volts on it?

Lights take almost nothing to run, however, an A/C takes quite a bit to operate. It would help to know more details about the A/C unit you have, such as the amps it draws, how many Btu's, etc.

Another issue is how much noise are you willing deal with related to operating the generator, as some camping areas have limits on generator use and the noise levels.

That being said, if you're looking for a really good and quiet generator that will run your A/C and some lighting, I'd have to say you can't beat a Honda rated for at least 3500 watts minimum running watts. But those are pricey compared to other brands, which make slightly more noise when running.

If you can get away with more noise, then you can get a nice 5000 watt unit for around $500 +/- that should handle your needs.

Here's some info to help you in your decision making as to what you need to run your devices and you can decide what brand you want to purchase.
