Right now we have a Class A Winnebago Adventurer with a 50 amp service which runs everything plugged in or with the generator. We are thinking of buying a Jayco Altante 31V which is a smaller RV 32' but only has a 30 amp service. It has two 11,000 btu air conditioners and want a convection/microwave installed as well. Will the 30 amp run both airs and the convention over at the same time? Will it only run one air at a time? The sales people say yes, but we all know how that goes. I can't find anything on it really. We have been full-time since 2002 and our RV is breaking down and want to trade for a smaller. The Alante drives nice and love the floor plan, but the 30 amp is a concern. Also will a Ford V10 320 HP engine have trouble going up hills while pulling a car?
Maxine, my rig is rated at 30 amps. I have a converter plug that converts the 30 amps into 20 so I can plug it into the plug at my house (which I believe are 20 amp) so I can keep the batteries charged at full capacity. This I understand. I plan on going to Baja for a few months next year. Because of possible issues with electrical surges, I bought two surge protectors. One 30 amp and one 50 amp. The most I can pull is 30 amps because that is all my rig's system can handle. Even if the campground box is 50 amps. If this is the case, was it a mistake to have purchased the 50 amp surge protector? Do I even need it? My main electrical cable that runs from my rig to the electrical box is 30 amp rated (I'm assuming) Both ends are rated at 30 amps. (I'm assuming) The female side that I plug into the van and the male side I plug into the electrical box. If the electrical box is 50 amp and my rig is 30 amp, do I need to get a 30 amp to 50 amp convertor, or can I just safely plug in my 30 amp cable into the 50 amp box without any problems? Are there any other converter plugs I should have or any other surge connections I should have besides what I mentioned? I want to make sure I have everything I need, in the event I run into any problems. Thanks for the help! P.S. I wasn't sure where to put this post. If it would be better somewhere else, please feel free to move it, or duplicate it.
