What he said-- if you have a traditional power pole at your site, you
should have a big 30 amp socket that you're plugged into and a duplex
outlet much like you have on the wall at home.
That outlet is on a separate breaker so you can plug an extension cord
into it and have 2 heaters!
As mentioned be sure and use a heavy duty cord!
After the heater has been on for several minutes feel the plug on the
heater and the extension cord where it's plugged in. It should only be barely warm.
If it's hot, that's a sign of a weak plug on the heater or a weak socket on
Also feel the face plate on the outlet inside your trailer where your other
heater is plugged in. That should NOT be warm.
Be careful out there!
