Your AC runs on 110 but typically requires a 30 amp circuit, household plugs are normally 15 amps unless they are for a stove or dryer...the voltage is still 110. When plugged into a 15 amp circuit you can not run AC. Your fridge can run on 110 or on propane but requires 12 VDC from battery to operate the controls. The adapters that you can use allows the 30 amp plug from your trailer to physically plug into a 15 amp plug...

That's what I thought, but I didn't know you need the battery to run the controls. Thanks.

So I unbolted everything and plugged a power strip with an on/off switch. Now I can keep it off until I'm actually ready to use it and have a few extra receptacles to boot.

I want to run a 30/50 amp wire to my breaker box also with a camper plug receptical. Not hard to do, but must also have the higher fuse in the box than the 15amp. Just don't seem to that the time.

Did you get a small adapter that you can use on your camper cord to go from the 30 amp prongs to the 110 prongs? Get a couple of these, only a couple of bucks each. There will be a day when you will not be able to get 30/50 amps and will have to plug into a 110. This let you run everything but the AC.

I also have the outdoor Kit. Love it. On my fridge there is a cold/colder knob at the top inside of the fridge. by turning it all the way to the 'hotest' side mine shuts off the fridge.

The buttons at the top of the fridge are 12v. this way the fridge can work fine going down the road when you are running it on propane.

It you want, google how a propane/electric fridge works. Very interest and simple design that has changed very little in who knows how many years.

Be safe.

I do have a dog bone drop down. I use it way in the back yard where I park the camper. As far as the outdoor kitchen fridge, it's controls are on the outside back if it. And it's bolted down. I wonder what they were thinking when they picked this fridge.
