Your vehicle won’t be able to support both air conditioners on such little amperage. If you absolutely must use a 30-amp circuit on a newer vehicle, then you’ll probably only be able to have on one air conditioner at any given time. You’ll have to switch between the two to cool the entire RV.

Do horse trailers get hot?
Radiation: Heat is lost into the environment because of a difference in temperature between your horse’s body and the surrounding air. When your horse is loaded in the trailer, his body heat goes no farther than the trailer walls. Simply put, there’s nowhere for the heat to go.
How cold is too cold to haul a horse?
Horses are most comfortable in 50-60°F (12°C), so a cold horse is less of a problem than an overheated horse. If you have an enclosed trailer, heat can build up quickly triggering sweating leading to dehydration. Air should be circulating throughout your trailer, but try to keep from direct air flow onto your horse.
