I don't think that I would leave your coach on the street, you might as well get used to backing it up in your driveway or a camping site.

If you run 30 amp service for 75 feet you might want to run bigger wire due to amp drop every 25 feet.

Seasons greetings, James

@ ahicks---I think I will do as you suggest--have the dealer re-winterize and watch how they do it! I am concerned about icemaker and water heater.
@ nitehawk--Very good idea just what I needed to hear!That would work fine for us.There is really no need to even use the toilets because I know I will be stopping at every rest area to check equipment!!
@Jimooo--I was wondering about the loss of amps I'll bet my neighbor will have that already figured out!
Thanks all!!

Your electrician should know about amp loss with distance, if he uses #4 wire the estimated loss would be .065 amp loss per 25 feet but of course that would vary depending on the voltage in the grid circuit .

Happy RVing , James

Re: watching them re-winterize. Suggest you really make them show you how? That means it's your hand turning the valves! Your hands hooking up the bottle of anti freeze to the pump! Don't let them touch a thing - just tell you how to do it, and supervise while that's being done. The water heater is a no brainer. The ice maker can vary. Some of them you just make pink ice cubes! Take some notes for later when you get done while it's still fresh in your mind. Doing it right is a simple process, but it almost has to be done in the proper sequence?

Best of luck with the new toy! -Al
