Harvey and Susan
Hello Harvey and Susan,

Noticed that you have well over 250 days on your G'town XL. Would you mind to share on how do you like your coach (obviously you do!), have any issue and how many upgrade you have done to improve your experience.

Thank again for your help.

Basically good advice all around. I would recommend not using your AC while hooked up to 15-amp service. You are very likely to trip the circuit breaker, and then all your power is lost. Charging the batteries and running your fantastic fans should be OK, but make sure everything current draw is shut down if you can.

Why not just use an extension cord and plug your converter straight into that.
This is what I do when I have my coach in storage
It keeps the batteries charged and runs the residential refrigerator
This way not costly adapter cords.

Thank for your advice.

I think it would be straightforward to plug the 50Amp cable to the 15 Amp power source since the adaptor only cost $25 bucks. This way I will have power to all sockets, plugs, lights, refrigerator, fantastic fans, and even AC if I want to run (which I will not). It may work fine the way you recommended too, but for $25 bucks, I went for it.

Quick question for the experts. I do this routinely but have a hot ground. Would the adapters cause this?
