The GMG (Davey Crockett model) can be powered by plugging into a 110 volt (using an AC/DC adapter) wall outlet but I understand that it pulls up to 60 amps to get started. Since my TT is 30 amp, I assume that I cannot plug into the outlet on the camper since it will probably blow a breaker? What about the 110 volt outlet at the campsite?
It also runs with a 12 volt battery so I guess I can use the trailer battery to run the grill or even use my vehicle since it will also plug into the cigarette lighter. Will running it on the TT battery cause any kind of issue?
Something is goofy with your load amp ratings. If it could draw 60 amps of AC current that would translate to 600 amps of DC current during startup. Looking at pics of the assemblies looks like a 15 amp supply cord maybe 6 amps of startup?
The DC components are much smaller and may draw 5-10 amps current. Guessing here cause I couldn't find specs. No house current appliance draws 60 amps at 115 VAC, would be a 220 volt application.
