RE: Why 30 amp and not 50 amp

Why not build all RV’s with 50 amp service ? With AC, microwaves, electronic water heaters plus numerous other electrical appliances we take with us it seems to make More sense to have 50 amp You do realize that so-called "50 amp service" is in fact 100 amps total - right? :W 30 amp service is delivered on one leg - 120 vac x 30 amps = 3600 watts. 50 amp service is delivered on two legs - 120 vac x 50 amps x 2 = 12,000 watts. BIG difference, so why pay for 50 amp service in the construction of your trailer if you have no need to draw anywhere near that amount of power?

RE: flojet macerator questions

Trying to decide how to set up Flojet macerator pump. I need to make an extension cord and it looks like I will need 10 ga wire for a 15 ft. run. Any suggestions on what type of connections to use? I ran 12 gauge zip cord from the battery back to a 7-pin Bargman connector mounted next to the waste gates and wired a matching Bargman to the macerator. https://i.imgur.com/HDN94qpl.jpg

RE: inverter to AC outlet!!

Probably the first thing you need to figure out is how you would get the wire to the outlets. The inverter should be near the batteries. You could also possibly drop the wire straight down through the floor and back up where you want the outlet. but you still need to protect the wire under the trailer. All of which is illustrated in my own inverter installation detailed 2 posts earlier. ;)

RE: inverter to AC outlet!!

So I just purchased a GoPower 700W pure sine wave inverter plus all the install goodies for our TT. Initially I powered our trailer "whole house" by simply turning off the converter and plugging the trailer's main service cable into one of the inverter's 120 vac outlets. I later refined this by installing receptacles dedicated to the inverter output alone - one outside, duplex receptacles on each side of the bed, and another at the galley. I mounted the remote in one of the bedside cabinets so if we lost shore power for some reason I could just turn the inverter on without even getting out of bed and the 4 receptacles would be powered. Pics start here, click on "i" at the top right of any pic for a text description. Inverter Wiring
