Do I need both 30 amp and 50 amp? We are headed to a place in a few weeks that offers both 30 and 50 at sites, what's the advantage of either?

Your electric cable that comes with the camper will either be 3 prong (30 amp) or 4 prong (50 amp) play it safe and get a 50 male to 30 female adapter or pigtail and you'll be set. You can also get one that reduces down to 110 to use at home.

Most important things, good sense of humor, patience and some basic hand tools. Remember, camping is supposed to be FUN!

Whatever is wrong, it isn't the end of the world. It can be fixed.
