It was just a friend. I knew the guys on here had the knowledge to say whether its correct or not. Just glad I asked. I printed out the info from the above site and will be giving it to the electrician.

That pdf and much more useful information can be found here:

RV Electric

And just for a FYI thing, we keep a copy of that pdf in the FAQ section if anyone needs it:

I used to be addicted to time travel, but that's all in the past now.

All of the responses are just further examples of the value of following this forum! Like others, I had a dedicated 30 amp installed. I converted my barn to storing the 'toys', so had the electrician bring in the service. I know the cost will vary widely by area, etc., but my install cost around a hundred bucks for his work. I added the breaker box myself (now set up with one 30 amp breaker and two 20 amp, and several available for expansion), ran the proper gauge wire, and added high intensity lights. My total bill was right around $175, and worth every penny of it. I had him verify that all my work was to code . . . he's the electrician, and I saved bucks by installing the simple things.

I used the .pdf as a reference when I was getting a quote from a local electrician. It was very helpful for both me and the electrician. Since my gangbox was on the other side of the house, my quote was pretty outrageous ($1250). For me to do it myself it would've been fairly expensive; the materials at Home Depot would've been about $350. I think I'll live with this 100' extension cord for a good long time.

Of course I'm not running the A/C on that cord.
