Nice comparison chart. Thanks!

Same price as Amazon if you count shipping, and I can't tell what they have in-stock.

I don't know if it's happening in all states, or just some like Arizona where Amazon has a distribution warehouse, but I now (starting this year) have to pay tax on Amazon purchases.

That makes the RV Upgrade unit $349.49 with shipping, and the Amazon unit $377.23 with tax. So for ME, the RV Upgrade order would be best.

In our trailer (50 amp) electrical panel there is room for 12 circuits. Only 6 breakers are installed. 5 are dedicated breakers, microwave, wtr. heater, AC, converter, and fridge. It seems that only 1 circuit is left for counter plugs and all other AC outlets. I don't know if this is fact although looking at the elect. panel it appears that way!! It could be that the dedicated labelled circuits share a load with something else?? When it gets warmer I will do some investigation into the wiring. I want to run a dedicated circuit to the rear of the trailer for the entertainment system, TV, DVD, possible satellite receiver, etc. powered from a 1000 watt PSW inverter.

It's a shame that they wire it that way...the service is the same as most houses. You'd think they'd at least run two circuits for split plugs in the kitchen.

The way our camper is set-up with the 30A service is 2 circuits; 1 circuit for the kitchen and 1 circuit for the rest of the camper that also has the converter on it.

You know 50 amp might be nice, but I venture to guess that we will only have 30 amps 95% of the time! And that 50 amp cord is an anaconda as someone here once said. And you're right they could have done a better wiring job.

I made another power cord using 10/4 SO that is 30' long, and still weighs less than half of the stock cord. When I am not using two ACs it is more than adequate. And a heck of a lot easier to handle.
