Adapters You Need to Plug RV Into Home Electric Systems

by Lou LoFranco
(West Palm Beach, FL)

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.


ANSWER: Greetings Lou thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

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 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 and you would plug that into your 15 Amp Male to 30 Amp Female Adapter.

That being said, you will have to understand that you will be limited to the number of appliances that you will be able to run at the same time when your RV is plugged into a home electric system. For more information on these limitations you should read the answer I gave to Can I Plug My Fleetwood RV Into Home Electric?.
