50A Service

I have a question for those that have 50A service in your camper. How many 120V AC circuits are wired in the camper? Hopefully, the answer is more than 2 circuits.

C'mon...somebody throw me a bone!

You should be able to tell looking in the breaker panel for # of circuits marked GCFI.

DH says two. Our third AC has its own power cord that is 30 that can cheat to a 20

There are 2 50 amp 115 Volt AC circuits. Check out the diagram and article below.

I'm about a month away from answering your question, because one of the first things I'll do is identify what each breaker controls.

If I'm not happy with the way they have installed the system (mainly receptacles) I'll be adding some double breakers (if necessary) and running some more romex.

I also do this so that we can run a space heater without having it doubled up with other items.

Ahh are you asking how many circuit breakers there are in the rig? If so, I believe we have 9 circuits across the two 115 Volt feeds. But it is snowing and I have broken my foot so taking a trip out there is not going to happen right this minute.

We have a WFCO panel for the AC panel circuit breaker.

To wa3pnt - don't pay too much attention to the labels - the circuit labels in our unit do not align to what they control.... I was going to figure those out once the temp warms up a bit here. Washer/Dryer circuit controls the Fridge.

My rig is in my sig line...

4 breaker slots, 3 of which have double breakers, 1 full breaker for a total of 7 circuits. 2 AC's in the unit and 1 breaker for the water heater leaves 4 other circuits.

What I'm trying to determine is the number of 120V circuits for the duplex plugs for coffee maker, heaters, etc. Our camper with 30A service has 2 such circuits...I was wondering if a camper with 50A service (100A @ 120V) has more than 2.

If the labels are correct, looks like I would have 2 duplex circuits and I have a 50 amp service.

Disclaimer: I have not checked this by turning off the breakers to check each circuit.

I'll look tomorrow. I'm guessing two that go to plugs.
