About all I can help you with is that 30 amp is typical for most size travel trailers. As they get larger some manufacturers will put 50 amp service in them. I do have an adapter that I attach to my trailer cord so I can plug it into a standard outlet at home which is 20 amp. I only run lights occasionally and the refrigerator at home (extra cold beer in the summer when at home working outside) so 20 amp is fine for that.

As for the rest, as long as everything works when I plug it in, I'm happy.

Lot of questions there Wild. As my son said when I asked him to name the provinces of Canada, "Do I look like Google?"

Here some links though. Guess I am Google after all.
