I have never had a problem with my Rockwood 8317SS. The older air conditioners did pull more current and caused a problem. It can also make a difference what the wattage on the microwave is. My guess is that a newer camper won't have as much of a problem as an older camper.

It can also be the campground. If the campground wiring is not sufficient, then the lower voltage will cause your appliances to pull more current. One way to help prevent this is to stay at the "big rig" sites that do have 50 amps but plug into the 30 amp circuit. They wire the 50 amp sites with a larger gauge wire which helps keep the voltage from dropping to your trailer which, in turn, pulls less amperage.
