Washer/dryer hook up and converting from 30 amp to 50 amp

What all would be involved from converting our Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite, Model 8312SS, from 30 amp to 50 amp? We're thinking of taking out the bunk beds in the rear, and installing a washer and dryer. Our outside kitchen is right there at that location, so both hot and cold water lines are real close by. I believe we would need the 50 amp capacity. Any thoughts, or ideas, would be greatly appreciated.

Unless your power panel can be converted to 50 amps, you'll need to replace it, and you'll need the larger shore power cable. The biggest problem is probably going to be routing wires from the power panel to the washer/dryer location if you want them hidden.

If you can handle all that, then it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Are you wanting to upgrade from 30 to 50 for a washer/dryer combo or for two ACs? The splendide combo doesn't need extra ampacity and you could run it from a standard 120v outlet.

Wanting to install 2 separate appliances, and not the combo. Probably the stackable type
