Temporary Shore Power
Picked up our Sandpiper 35Loft yesterday, in snow/sleet/freezing drizzle. First time towing any fifth wheel, or anything that big. Yay me, and thank you God for Your help!
At any rate, as we rig out for our fulltime trip over the next two weeks or so, I'm going to want/need power out there. Plus the kids want to sleep out there. The house is for sale, so I don't want to make any huge permanent changes.
I have a spare punchout on my breaker box. Can I have an electrician install a 30 amp breaker there, and run some appropriate cable outside for a temp shore power installation?
Our washer is on a dedicated circuit. Could I, if the washer breaker is at least 30 amp, use the appropriate adapters to my SP cable and run just from that plug when the washer is unplugged?
Could I just attach a regular battery charger to the house battery? I know I'll only get 12v that way, but I really just need lights and heat.
Related question: We have a house-type ceiling fan. Should that (and the Konka TV) be AC only?
