Or did I misunderstand. Appreciate any advise.
Safe travels everyone
Last week we had friends using our coach as a guest house for 4 days/nights.
I used a homemade adapter to connect 2 12ga cords, (one each from two different "out of phase" 20a receptacles), to my 50A cord.
That resulted in only 40A total, which was enough to run both roof airs and the inverter but little else, (no refer, WH, microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer, etc).
A 50A campground receptacle usually/normally provides 50A for each leg, (100a total).
However I have found some COE parks with labels on the power boxes stating that the 50A receptacles are protected by 30A breakers...in that case only 60A, (30 X 2), is available.
