Actually 50 amp service delivers 6000 watts of power, not 12,000 watts. If your rig is equipped with two A/Cs, your shore line power plug should be only compatible with 50 amp service which will run your two A/Cs.


50 amp service is 120/240 volts. 12,000 watts. And that's the way it is!

Most 50 amps are wired to provide 6000 watts per leg. That adds up to 12000 watts.

If it is a 30 amp RV, you might be able to add a load support hybrid inverter charger. If the AC units are 13500 each that may allow running both--and other items, short term. Such as a coffee pot.

It would be important to monitor voltage.
