Heat Pad Question

I have a switch in the bathroom for heat pads. Does anyone know if I can turn this on while plugged into 20 amp (120v) service?

I believe must pads are 12 volt. Should be fine.

Turn it on. If the breaker trips You know it can't be run on 20 amps.

Heat pads can be 120 volt or 12 volt or both. If the switch looks like a 120 volt light switch it's more than lick 120 volt units. you may also have a 12 volt switch. Check with coach manufacture.

Another option is check the fuse panel. 110 and 12 fuses look way different
