Electrical for RV storage and use

Just finished building the new storage building for the RV but have a question on future MH.
If a MH requires 50amp service (110 vt ??) what do I need to to tell my electrican so he knows how to wire the correct hook up.

I'd give him this picture.

50A is usually fine to wire, but 30A is what some people can't grasp.
Make sure he DEFINITELY puts a ground wire too.

Tell him you need a NEMA 14-50R receptacle. He'll know how to wire it if he follows code. I'd also put in one or 2 household type 20A receptacles as well for utility power for things like compressors, lights, and common extension cords. NEMA Plug and Receptacle Configurations
