Weber Electric Grill

I am considering a Weber Electric Grill for our camper. It looks like it pulls 13 amps on high. I am assuming the exterior outlets on the campers are rated at 15 amps. So this should work....correct?

As long as nothing else is drawing on that circuit, sure will.

Weber Electric Grill

If running the A/C put your hot water water on gas while cooking. You can also get a 14 gauge extension cord and plug directly into the pedestal, if a 15 amp outlet is there.

I use a webber electric grill, connected to heavy duty extension cord from the power pedestal on the 20Amp circuit. I always check to make sure the cables do not get hot. Have not had any issues. I do not like plugging it into the camper.

I ended up with their small gas grill and an adaptor for the camper propane tanks.

A 15 amp circuit is only rated for 80% of that, 13 amps... I would never plug anything in that uses that high of rating into a camper.. You are better off using a 10 ga. extension cord in the power ped. Some of them have 20 amp receptacles in them and that would be so much better. Besides if you blow a circuit, you are better blowing the campgrounds and not your RV's.
Just me personal and experienced opion.

Been there, done that! High amp electric "stuff" is not family friendly in an rv. I finally went back to my small Weber charcoal grill. Throw it together 20 minutes b4 cooking and works like a champ.

Our TT is only 30A so this Spring I plan to add a 2nd 30A circuit that will power a 2nd A/C and 20A outlets for indoor & outdoor grills. It's going to have a 30A plug & 30A wire going to the pedestal. I will then use adapters at the pedestal depending on whether I have 50A/30A or only 30A/20A... This way the weakest point in the circuit is at the pedestal & not my TT...

Turbs added a 2nd circuit & posted pics somewhere on this forum...

good choice. I've had one for a few years now and love it. Sometimes I use adapter and tank, sometimes I use the disposable cylinders just because it's easier. Cylinders are cheap at Walmart.
