Shore power at home.

Anyone have a 30/50 amp outlet installed at home for their rig? If so, how much was it?

I installed a dedicated 30 amp outlet next to my trailer pad before the concrete was poured for my trailer pad. It is about 50' from my house electrical box. The breaker, box, outlet, wire, conduit, and post cost about $75. My labor is cheap when I'm working for myself.

About $80 for box, receptacle and cable. This was 30 amp service, plenty of capacity at home.

I bought a 30 amp RV outlet box at Home Depot for $30 and paid an electricIan $100 to install it. It's the same as this: http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...x-30-amp/20811

I installed a 30 amp one for around $60. The wire can be a little pricy for the correct gauge. I installed it myself so that was no issue.

We had 50 amp shore power installed here at home...about 10' from the trailer.

Had to run it about 80' from power supply.... (his revered *shop*!)

PVC, wire and box; $275.00

Labor: 2 boxes of golf balls

His golfing buddy is an electrician.

I installed a 30 amp service for my FW. With wire,conduit,outlet and breaker cost me around 350.00. Outlet is about 80 ft from the house did all the work myself. Its nice to be able to run at least one of the A/C units when fiddling in the trailer when it's hot outside.

969,
We could run one of the a/c units on our 50 amp TT, at certain times of the day, on a 20 amp circuit...just depended on how hot it was that day. confusing, eyup

With our new 50 amp shore power, it can now be a man-cave...running everything in it, if he wants to...or just a getaway if he wants to watch the Bucs, and I wanna watch the Saints.

It's nice to be able to back it in and hook it up after a long trip. That way I can take a day or two to fully shovel it out.

We got home from this last trip late Sunday night and didn't do the final button up until Wednesday night. Kept 'er running 24/7 until then....stats set on 82 degrees.

Only problem with that is that every time I'd go out to take more stuff out, our dog Fred thought it was *time to go again!* and tried to beat me up the steps.

Just wanted to see what everyone was shelling out. I just put one in our garage just on the opposite side if the panel for around $150. But I think half of that was the extension cord from the garage to almost halfway to the trailer.

I installed a 30 amp service
I used 10/4 with a ground. I dead headed one of the leads at the main breaker box and at the outlet box. The reason I did that if I ever get a new RV with 50amp all I have to do is change out the breaker at the main breaker box and the outlet.
