how do I plug in to my house?things look pretty good 34 ft Itasca suncruiser

Well I think it is a good unit made it home only a 2 hour drive but the snow and ice load on the roof made for a slower speed with lots of finger crossing can't wait to go rving took 3 days in a heated shop to get it unthawed lol
Wondering what to do about hooking up power from my shop can i just make a jumper cord to my welder plug or 15 amp outside plug?

What ever you do DO NOT PLUG IN TO YOU WELDING OUTLET.
The welder is 220 VAC with no neutral.
The RV requires 110 VAC.

If your welder plug is 220, DO NOT CONNECT TO IT.

An electrician installed a 30A "RV" receptacle w/weather protection cover on the outside of the house. Went right from the main CB box to the receptacle. Cost $50.00 total.

Good advice from everyone. Don't plug into the welder outlet, as it's most likely 240V, and you'll fry everything in your new coach.

Please provide more information on your coach. I'm assuming it's a 30A 110V service.

A good electrician could put in a small breaker panel on your welding service, and break off a 30A single pole 110V service with the proper plug. It would be legal and safe, but it needs to be done by a qualified electrician who understands a 30A RV service is only 110V.

your probably not aware that a 50 amp Rv service is infact 230 volt. That doesnt mean you can plug inot anything that 230 volts such as your welder. Proper phasing configuration have to exist and most important the common neutral has to be in the right posistion

You can use an adapter to connect your power cord to the 15 amp wall socket, just realize the power available will be limited. Should keep batteries charged and fridge running. If concerned check voltage in the RV, don't use if it is less than 108 volts.

Here is info on how RV wiring has to be done. A regular 220-240 plug (welder/dryer etc) will fry your RV wiring.
RV Wiring

And congratulations on the new rig...enjoy

Congradulations on your rv purchase! You did the right thing by coming to the forum with your question. May have kept you from frying your electrical system with 220 volts. That would have been a bummer

I had a 1994 30 amp could only run 1 air at the time. I hooked up a double pole double throw switch coming off genny made everyone happy.
