Running on 30 amp?

You will not be able to run the stovetop since it requires 220. You may or may not get electric heat to the Aquahot.

You can run ONE AC compressor on 30 amp. Set the thermostat to low, and turn the other AC unit off. My experience was the both units set on low would trip a 30 amp breaker.

All of your 110 plugs will work. All that happens in the 30 to 50 adapter is that both legs of the 50 amp circuit are now combined and fed by one leg of 30 amp. The nomenclature is confusing. When you are plugged into 30 amp, you only have 30 amps available, TOTAL. When plugged into 50, you have 50 on each leg, for 100 amps total. Meaning that when you are using 30 you add both the amp meters together to see how you are using power. When on 50 amp, service you look at them individually to not exceed 50.

Next week I will be in Kissimmee FL at the Mecum auto auctions. While the temps are cool this week, the next week forecast is in the 70’s day time, so I may need some AC during the day time. Originally, I was dry camping and going to use the generator when needed. However, my neighbor in Destin offered me his RV site with power. It was not till after I committed that I found out it was only 30amp power. Thus, I am trying to figure out if I can use the power or if I paid for an upgrade for naught and will end up using the gen anyways :-)

Thanks for the details!
