This is from ABC Campground in Branson Mo.

"Full Hookups with 50amp Electric. We offer full hookups on all of our sites. There are some 100amp sites available."

Yes, there some all-electric coaches that use 100 amp hookup.

Please tell us what RV you have/are considering that will not operate on 50 amp RV power???


I have seen some Bus chassis motorhomes with 5 AC’s. But even they are served by a 50 amp spit phase 240 volt pedestal. Other than “other than motor home needs” like an Electtic vehicle or portable grow op I can’t see the need for 100 amp service. Our townhouse is only 100 amp service and we have an electric range, electtic dryer, central air and two electric vehicle chargers. 100 amp would be a lot for a Motorhome.

We had a site with two 50 amp hookups, Sarasota Lakes resort. Ours was a park model, one 50 amp for the house, one for the electric range.

I should add to my coments above
I said I have never seen either a 100 amnp (twin 50) Site or coach

I have read of them.. Just never seen one.. Reason follows

Very few of either exist so if you have a 100 amp (Two 50 amp cords) coach you are going to be paying for two sites at most CG's

And if you wired your CG for two 50 amp feeds at many sites.. You spent a lot of money for nothing


Now some folks might be tempted to "Cheat" and use the 50, 30 and 20 amp outlets.

The park I'm in now has a burned out power feed to some sites. seems the wires were overloaded.


Home is where I park it.

100 amp service is common for a residence, but rare for a MH.

We were at Route 66 RV Resort a couple years ago. It was brand new & our site absolutely had 100 amp service. I assumed this was to accommodate bus conversions. Regardless it definitely is not for two RV's at one site.

Do the all new Prevost/Newells etc electric coaches require 100 A service? Perhaps Mr Mark can chime in, I think his Prevost has a huge LI battery bank making his coach pretty much all electric.

FWIW - outside of winning the lottery - this is an issue I likely will never have to solve for.

No, nearly all of them use a 50 amp setup which provides 100 amp service to the coach. That's 50 amp service available on 2 separate legs wired into the coach.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?
