RE: melting plug

in the past 14 months i have had to replace the 30A plug that plugs into the rv parks box at least 3 times because 1 of the prongs overheats and melts my plug. need ideas on what might be the cause OP has not been back in like 8 days, if same park, bad pedestal outlet. Different parks likely too much draw. How do you draw too much without tripping the parks breaker? From what I have read over the years...outlets are rated at 80% continuous duty or 24 amps continuous for a 30 amp outlet. Maybe someone has the NEMA link. I agree with this in the boat article linked above: :The max continuous level at which you want to load any shore power circuit is 80%. Keep in mind this is when they are new and with clean tight connections. As the connections age corrosion can set in and this can create high resistance, especially with the highly susceptible 1938 twist-lock standard. I generally don’t recommend loading a NEMA L5-30 30A circuit to more than 70% of its face value rating, especially in the marine environment. This means approx 21A on a 30A circuit. If you want to push it to 80%, and feel safe about that, the number is 24A. As a marine electrician I do not feel safe about that with the 1938 NEMA L5-30 plug standard."

RE: Ram box on short bed - ill-advised for towing a 5th wheel?

I see lots of people don't know what a Ram box is...it's the tool box built in the sides of the pickup bed which makes the inside of the pickup box narrow side to side. The answers is yes, it is a problem with a 5th wheel...you'll need a Side winder pin box (or similar brand) on your trailer to have clearance inside the pickup box for turning....This would also give you clearance for tighter turns with the short pick bed and the cab. Two different issues "Ram box" and Short bed.

RE: SRW vs Dually

This one is easy. DRW if you need the carrying capacity because you need it. If you don't, SRW because they're better in every other way. Except! if a tire blows out towing a trailer...SRW not better :)

RE: Using Dryer's NEMA 14-30 outlet for RV shore power

sounds like you are on the right track, just remember that you will need to be able to turn the power off to connect and disconnect....sounds like the outlet will be below the panel...so that should make it easy. here is one of the three 50 amp outlets I have installed at my property :) https://i.imgur.com/HYjOlv1l.jpg

RE: Using Dryer's NEMA 14-30 outlet for RV shore power

With that many normal sized breakers, it may be less expensive to tandem four of them into 2 slots and then install a standard 50 double pole breaker. Have you pulled a breaker to see if they will support tandems? yep...that was my first thought too..double 15 or 20 amp as applicable. https://www.amazon.com/Square-Schneider-Electric-HOMT1515CP-Single-Pole/dp/B00002NB47/ref=pd_bxgy_60_img_2/135-3827543-6686262?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00002NB47&pd_rd_r=0d7d39d1-899a-4b95-aa46-d1ef4c5d0827&pd_rd_w=zeRot&pd_rd_wg=hVyB3&pf_rd_p=a2006322-0bc0-4db9-a08e-d168c18ce6f0&pf_rd_r=FMAKJK0XEZJ46R8579HF&psc=1&refRID=FMAKJK0XEZJ46R8579HF

RE: Using Dryer's NEMA 14-30 outlet for RV shore power

As I said in post #2 do it right and add the circuit. The double 240 or if you have some single 120 CBs you can get those in double to make space for another standard 240 breaker. :)

RE: Goosebox vs. fifthwheel

the only negatives I have heard with the Reese Goosebox is... having to add air to the airbag often, you have to raise the trailer higher when connecting/disconnecting to clear the ball and a litter harder to line up when hitching. If your truck has the optional air ride...like on the Ram...you can use that to lower the truck to make hitching easier. I'm sure there is more....just wait for it :W
