it uses two 110 legs which essentially is 220 but it just seperates them in the camper - am I reading this correct?
correct. just like the L1430 plug on a generator. most midsize generators put out 30amp-220vt, but you can get a cord to plug into the 30 amp socket which splits into 4-110vt receptacles. a higher end RV which has a 50amp input will split the current into 110vt circuits internally,
an RV which has a 30amp feed has a cord that WILL NOT FIT in a 50 amp receptacle,so you cannot plug into it by mistake.
