30 Amp Male to 50 Amp Female Adapter
15 Amp Male to 30 Amp Female Adapter

Yes, I have a pop camper and I want to make sure our ac is working before we go camping. Since it is a 3 prong, I wanted to see where I could get an adapter for this so I can plug it into my 110 outlet. I had one but lost it.

Thanks

ANSWER: Hi Lou thanks based on your description it sounds like your Camper has a 30 Amp plug. You will need a 15 Amp Male to 30 Amp Female Adapter (Pictured at the top of this page) to plug your RV into your home electrical system.

If you had a 50 Amp connection on your RV you would need a 30 Amp Male to 50 Amp Female Adapter (Pictured at the top of this page)and you would plug that into your 15 Amp Male to 30 Amp Female Adapter.

Just a reminder, you will not be able to run a lot of your appliances all at one time, due to being connected to 15 Amps. You could run one Air Conditioner but not two. You cannot use the Microwave at the same time as the Air Conditioner as you will trip the circuit breaker in the house.

I also would not plug anything into the house electrical circuit you are going to have your RV plugged into.

As long as you understand these electrical limitations you will have by plugging your RV into your home circuit you should be fine.

I hope this information has been helpful to you.

Split your shoreline system for more flexibility
by: Anonymous

This is excellent information for people running shoreline power. For reasons detailed in the article we suggest splitting your service in to two separate 30 amp systems where possible.

As a manufacturer of Specialty Vehicles it is not always possible to have a 50 amp circuit available. With split systems you will be able to run all of your accessories (or most of them)by plugging in to two different 30 amp circuits.

This may not be a simple change for RV's but for those of you using your vehicle for work, tailgating or other non RV related purposes a split system is the way to go.
