There seems to be a lot of erroneous advice on this topic. Get a real electrician. Paying someone to hook up your wiring does not make them an electrician.

Linkie works if you select the appropriate box after the link loads.
It then selects a pdf page.
Works for us - FYI

Yup. Turns out I had scripting for that page turned off.

Thanks for letting me know so I could start looking locally at my security settings.

In bad weather, I just unplug the motorhome from shore power just in case of power surges etc.
Same here, except our weather isn't bad enough to need to unplug the RV.

Hey Pop

We'll be picking this guy up on Sept. 26th in Madison SD. Great excuse for a Road Trip

Four-month-old Paxton?

Good-looking Tri.

Are you going to show him?

Be sure to do at least SOME formal training with him, even if you don't show him.

Thanks for all the great comments!
I've gone to Lowes and gotten the correct box. It's going to be located right near our panel, so virtually no run at all.

It does get hot where we live, and the coach may be a "guest house" at times, so running all the zillion electrical appliances is a strong likelihood so 50amp is the way to go.

Thanks for the suggestion of the multimeter ~ I'm shadowing our electrician and make sure he gets it right the first time!

The hardest part is that I won't have a rig to plug in to test for a while, so I want to get it all right the first time!

Again, this forum is awesome ~ thanks to each of you for your help!

Mark
