We've decided to keep our trailer at a new location in our yard that is closer to the garage.
But, I do not have 30 or 50amp service available there and plan to install something. Our trailers have always been 30amp as is our current Flagstaff Shamrock. The trailer will sit 25' from the box.
One more thing that may help: We do not plan to upgrade anytime soon to a larger 5er or MH that would need 50amp (although that is a distinct possibility 10-12 years from now). Who knows if we will even own the house.
So, my questions are:
- Do I just go with the 30amp because that's all we need?
- Would there be any benefit to having a 50amp for my current 30amp trailer? (I don't think so but I've been wrong before ...)
- Is there a big cost increase between installing a 50amp instead of the 30amp? This is not something I want to do on my own and I will have an electrician install whichever one for me.
- Assuming we go 30amp now, is it hard or expensive to add 50amp to the same box in the future?
