Oct. 1 delivery, Escape 19 needs your help

Forum has been very helpful in making decisions, esp DonM's plea that you advise him how to spend his money. :-)

We need input.
#1. Since a day is not complete without TV news and Big Bang Theory, where do we put TV arm in 19'?

#2. A month in Fl in March can get hot & humid.
Need first hand experience from folks who run AC with 2000 watt generator.
How well does generator run either the Dometic 11,000 BTU or the Polar Bear 9,200 BTU?
How well do either function on generator or plugged in at the county parks we frequent?

Have spent 45+ years with umbrella tent, pop up camper, backpack tent, 27' 5th wheel.
Now downsizing. Can not go with 21' as can't get good nights sleep in smaller than queen size bed. At our ages, making up dinette every night too much of hassle, much less need to have his body warmth for my cold feet!

Appreciate your input.

My Polar Cub operates off my 2000 watt generator. No info on the bigger unit but they may have a soft start installation available.
My tv is in the front dinette area of the 19', I had the wall reinforced during build and can mount it anywhere on the wall.
