It's like having a 30 amp motorhome all over again. Two big watt appliances at a time or one big and lots of small.
30 amp will give you approx 3500 watts give or take a hundred watts.

Here is a pretty good wattage chart from honda:

Yep... the things you need to watch for are the A/C units, microwave, electric water heater, etc. We had to spend two months at my FILs little farm last month on only a 15 amp circuit and had to learn to conserve. Switching our water heater and fridge to propane helped a lot.

Hi edxl370,
Any appliance that will run on propane, make it so. Only one A/C at a time. If it is a good 30 AMP service then an A/C and the microwave is okay.

I didn't see what rv you have, if you have an energy management system built into your rig you should be ok, it will shut down whatever it needs to in order to not exceed the power available.
