Shore Power

2014 Mtn Aire does anyone know when I hook up to shore power with a 110 adaptor to a 20amp circuit what all in the coach will be hot.
Also will it charge the batteries through the inverter?

You will have the same outlets as you do with 50A service BUT you will only have 20A or less depending on the size and length of your extension cord.
The inverter will power up to charge the batteries.

Should be able to run about everything except the air conditioners. Not all at once as it does not take a lot of things running to get to 20amps and tripping the breaker. The batteries will charge.

Everything will be hot and normal in the coach. The difference is you only have a total of 20a to use at one time. This is of course in comparision to the 100a you would normally have plugged into 50a (which is actually two 50a feeds).

So, you must be very conservative in your use and only one large elec appliance at a time.

The inverter will always charge the batteries as long as it has 120v. I expect your first time on 20a will allow you to take many trips to the pedistal to reset the breaker until it becomes clear what you can get away with

You should have an EMS that will keep you under control. I believe that any EMS has a button to select between 20 & 30 amp connections since electrically, they look the same to the EMS. So, you shouldn't pop any pedestal breakers if you make that selection.

This will explain the 12v battery system in your coach and this will give you some idea of 12v wiring in your coach.
This and more can be found in the QT's links in my signature.

Your inverter will also kick in to add power when needed for short burst.
