I added an additional outlet to the dedicated 20 amp micro circuit for my primary electric heater. We seldom use the micro and would never have a need to with the heater going. Feel a lot better with the heater on a 12 ga. wire.

Another thing we do is buy several RV antifreeze at a big box to use for hand flushing. Allows the DW to use the toilet, every hour, without adding water to the tank.

As I tent camper, I have never worried about amp power feed. I just looked up the power feed at Indiana Dunes SP. It has 50 amp service. So, I assume the key is that it should be 30 amp service or higher, correct?

They usually list the higher amperage available. Most have 30 amps and many have 50 amps. If they say 50, there should be a 50, a 30 and a 20 amp breaker available.

In addition to all the comments, you should be able to use your fridge without any issues, it won't take a lot to keep it cool.

Have and will use my A126, with generator powering the heat pump, no problems. Don't plan on winterizing the camper or the boat until the last second-- don't even like typing or saying the "w" word!

I have been doing some cool weather camping, 40-50 night time, and I have found that I am getting condensation on the interior of any enclosed spaces that have access to the exterior. Like storage places with an exterior hatch. The condensation is on the alu frame that penetrates the shell and on the thinner hatch door itself. I wipes these off in the a.m. or open the hatch during the day to allow drying air to pass thru.
