Adapters You Need to Plug RV Into Home Electric Systems
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: 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.
