stressmaster,

I use the 30 to 15 when I need "extra" power for running the block heater--or perhaps for cooking at a picnic table. Cheapest source for dogbone adapters is Walmart.

Pick 3% for voltage drop.

I've also got a "fancy pants" break out box 50 to 30 and 50 to twin 20 amp outlets with circuit breakers.

Where I camp it can get to -40. I am able to heat 100% electrically--but my peak load is 7100 watts and the average is about 5400 watts. It works out to about 129 KWH per day.


Regards, Don
My ride is a 28 foot Class C, 256 watts solar, soon to have SiO2 batteries, 3000 watt Magnum hybrid inverter, Sola Basic Autoformer, Microair Easy Start.

Are they safe? YES
But be aware you are very limited

A/C can take 13-15 amps
Fridge *RV type 3-4
Microwave 10-15
Converter, up to about 10 if the batteries are hungry
Water heater 12.5
On a 15 amp circuit. with full batteries pick one I'd run the fridge on gas.


Home was where I park it. but alas the.
