How do I know if my 1997 Southwinds has a 30 or 50 amp service?

ANSWER: Hi thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page

The easiest way to tell is by looking at the plug on your RV. Take a look at the pictures at the top of this page and it will soon become apparent whether your RV is 30 or 50 Amps.

Since we are on the topic of RV hookups this would be a good time to share a video that I found on Youtube by RVgeeks that gives an excellent explanation on properly hooking up your RV at an RV Park.



Here links to some of the items mentioned in the video. Dog Bone Electrical Adapters, Freshwater Drinking Water Hose, RV Water Pressure Regulators and slunky sewer hose support.

Another item that is not mentioned in the video but I believe every RVer should have and use when hooking up to power in an RV park is an RV Electrical Surge Protector. For more information on how important a Surge Protector is to your RV you should read that answer I gave to Does My RV Need a Surge Protector?

I hope that this information has been helpful to you.
