I have an 8500 watt generator that I use in case of Hurricanes (it got a lot of use after Irma) that should be able to run both. They are 13,500 BTU. Thanks!
Anything designed to run from 110-120V peaks at 1800W. Higher powered items require 220-240V.
So even the biggest Coleman units paired together would run from a 4000W generator, with room to spare.
