Rusty,
Just have a little guy.. 30 amps.

My point was that since RVs have no 240Vac appliances the rig is looking for two 120Vac circuits.. 120/240 is ok.. 208Y/120 is OK and if one uses adapters, boxes and special cords just two 120Vac (same phase) will please it.

I use 50 amp on occasion, when that's all there is or there is an issue with the 30 amp (like not there sometimes) or every Fall at the festival of crokpots where we run 50 amp to a 30 amp #10 cord to a quad 20 box..

We can settle this with wet cocktail napkins and dull pencils while we eat Madam's Utz chips at the Dollywood Rally..

It also states that an RV spot must not be less than 30 amps, there is an exception for tent campers, but in order to be called an RV spot it must have greater than 30 amps.
That's what I've been trying to say.. 120/240 is not required.. 208Y/120 is OK.. but as stated above two 120Vac feeds will keep the RV happy, see original post.
