trailer. IF you connect 2 different legs to the SAME hot wire you have
a dead short and it will go BANG
If they are on the same leg you get 120v and maybe a tad more than
20 amps but you'd be breaking all sorts of electrical codes.
Like I said-- IF they are actually 20 amp 120v outlets AND you are the
only guy on a particular circuit, you CAN run your roof AC with the adapter
I show below.
My roof AC actually uses just a tad less than 15 amps. I ran it one day
and night at my sisters house when temps where 102 that afternoon.
I did not kick her breaker until she turned on the light in the garage.
That little shop lite was enough to push me over the line and trip the breaker.
We shut off the lite and let the breaker cool and ran the AC the rest of the
day. I can't swear it was a 15 and not a 20 but her house is 35 years
old and I bet it was just 15.
You say the track has 20 amp outlets, I say you will be OK.
Beyond that unless you strike up a real good friendship with the track
electrician and can con/talk/bribe him into installing a 30 amp 120v
breaker for you this is your only option in my opinion.
37 years industrial electrical maintenance and 10 years RVing says so.....
