Buy 30 amp or 50 amp?

This also depends were you camp. We camp at provincial parks and I have never been at a site that has 50A service.

It looks like 50 amp is the way to go! Thank you so much for the responses. We were on the fence because there was a 30 amp in stock and it will take 4-6 weeks to have the 50 amp ready for pick up. I think it will be worth the wait though : )

Plus if you do some early or late season camping the 50 amp will allow you to use 2electric heaters in the unit while still being able to make your morning coffee.

If you go to campgrounds that don't have 50amp service but you have a 50 amp until you can get a dog bone adapter that you plug 50amp end into your rv cord and get a 30amp plug and 15 amp plug you can plug into campground peristalsis if available giving you 45amps. Not quite the same but a help.

Not all CG allow the 30 and 15 amp plugs. They charge the site for the amperage being used (15, 30 or 50 amp).

The 50 Amp. is also a "plus" when you go to sell it.

If you plan on running anything else while running just one AC, like coffee pot, microwave, water heater, curling iron then a 50amp circuit is a must, not to mention running both AC at once. If you spend time in the south, you WILL run both ACs. Go for the 50 amp.

The two head 45amp solution is iffy. If the post is GFI, it won't work. Just carry a 50 to 30 doggone and if all available is 30, only run one A/C at a time.
