This will be a learning experience for many.
Some things I can to conserve power while plugged into 30 amp while in Goshen.
1. Will only use 1 AC and now way run 2 AC.
2. I have a AC and Propane refrigerator and will use propane only.
3. I will turn off all 120 volt devices and lights when not needed.
Just doing a few things can help everyone and conserve power.
I'm also the fairgrounds has done this many times and knows its electrical capacity and if needed will take additional steps to keep our lights and AC's on.
Relax and enjoy the rally and don't worry about the small stuff.
Meet and make new friends and invite your neighbors around you to site around the campfire and exchange stories. That is what FROG rallys are designed to do.
See you all soon.
Oh come on my place. I will be in the Forest River Rig.
(USAF Combat Controller Speak for we WILL be there
This is going to be the BEST FROG Rally ever (Oh, except for Bamaganza '15 - you KNOW you want to come down to Alabama in October, see the leaves change, eat catfish one night and BBQ the other )

For those of you who haven't done much dry camping. We carry plastic dish pans to put in the sink. We catch the water and dump it in the black water tank. Jim
No one will have to dry camp at the Goshen Rally. Everyone will have at the very least a water and 30 amp electric hookup. Also one free pump out service mid-week will be offered for those who need it.

one more thing that you might want to bring is a "Y" adapter for the water line in case two units need to hook onto the same water tap.

Do you think I should chance it without an extension? I think that I have 25 feet right now.
Is there priority given to coaches that use 50 amp service? Also, does anyone know how well a unit with two ac's will run on 30 amp? I don't think mine will without popping a circuit or shutting down the ac units.
You won't be able to run both ACs at the same time on 30 amps. You will need to close off the bedroom during the awake time and swap ACs at night.
I could be wrong, but I don't recall many 50 amp sites (even the full hookup ones). BRING POWER ADAPTERS. 30 amp campers should be prepared to use a 50 if there is one and you get put there.
