He has also made several somewhat dubious assumptions on some of his other posts, but does his best at posting what he knows about.

His posts should be open to discussion.
Posts to the FAQ are pre-screened for factual information prior to being uploaded. His FAQ is quite correct. There are two 50 amp circuits in a 50 amp service (a total of 100 amps available to the camper).
