Thanks B and B but from what others said above it needs to be 2 110 and a 1 220 otherwise I could fry a lot of electronics? From the picture what did they install as I can't tell what each would look like?

Sorry not that great with electricity.

Here is a pdf file from myrvus.com website that shows the proper wiring needed for the split phase 120/240 outlet required for a 50 amp RV.

http://www.myrv.us/Imgs/PDF/50-amp%20Service.pdf

I also recommend reading a lot of other informative stuff they have there. It is a very helpful site for everyone either with a 30 or 50 amp RV.

RV Electric

Make sure to search thru the tabs on the left side of the link above, as it explains many things with the electrical systems, including how to test outlets.

If those are the wires going out the bottom left of the box in your picture going to the outlet in question then you do not have a neutral wire. Should be easy to add. If the car charger plug is not wired for the neutral line then it should work fine as a 220v connection and you can still use the same outlet for both.

Do not plug your RV into the 220 outlet it could damage it. The Car probably uses true 220V while the RV actually uses two legs of the 220 configures as two separate 110V circuits.

I think we're to late for that but not sure.

If it was mine and you needed 220 volt as wired for your car and 110 for your RV. First it probably takes to different plug configuration. I would put a small breaker sub panel outside and wire that to 50 or bigger depending on max amps each pulls. 220 v with a neutral and ground to the panel. Then have two 50 amp breakers put in the sub panel. One breaker go's to the car charger outlet and the second breaker go's to the RV outlet. To do that you need 4 wires to your sub panel. Then you have the correct plug configuration and voltage to each. If you plug both the car and the RV in at the same time you might need a bigger main breaker in your panel depending on FLA (Full loaded Amps), incase both came on the same time maybe. That is the correct way to do it IMO, and I just dirtied your water I know. You won't have to worry about what is plugged in or coming on is then over. Good Luck....

Sounds like maybe late for not plugging in, does the op have a volt meter?

This sounds redundant, to me anyway, 220 is two 110 volt circuits, if you are saying that the coach uses two circuits of the same phase then that would be to much of a draw of amperage off of the panel buss, unless there is a appliance that uses 220 on the coach, using 220 volt 50 amp two pole circuit breaker for the coach is the way to go, a 4 wire configuration, 220 volt with neutral with ground, jmho,
you can not get 220 on a single branch circuit. the only way you could get other than 110 volts to ground on a single circuit is if you have a three phase delta system, then you would only get the maximum
of about 180 volts to ground or neutral, and then that would pose a real problem.
unless your in Europe
