If your going to do it do it right. I had my electrician install 20 amp breaker than he ran a wire to a junction box to side of house and wired in the 30amp connector so now I just take my 50amp/30amp and plug in. You only need to run one air any way. Later RJD

We can have a long talk about this at the rally.

As mentioned, yes you can.

As for A/C, I used a heavy duty extension cord. It's 50' and costed something like $50-75 from Home Depot. I run my A/C as long as it is the only thing running. Even with my surge protector, it didn't give me low voltage or any warnings doing it.

I personally would ALWAYS use a surge protector if I had one. In fact, that's why I put a hard-wired one in.

You can run your charger and fridge on a 15amp circuit. you have to be sure your hot water heater doesn't come on or you might trip the GFI if you have one.

But at home depot:

50 amp outlet $28.00
50 amp breaker $10.00
#6 Wire $0.90 per foot
Piece of mind...Pricele$$

and you can run both AC's the Fridge, the charger, and will not need any adaptors

I just use direct 50 amp to 110 adapter. Works fine no 50 to 30 to 110
But like others say for fridge and charging

We had an electrician come and do several things to the house for us and one of those was to put a 50AMP plug out by the trailer and we love it.

We on occasion have house guests who stay in the trailer and it sure makes it simple.
