Third AC on 202 Sierra 330RL

Has anyone installed a third AC in the Living Room Vent on a 2012 Sierra 330RL?

Thanks

Hello, and to the forums. As your question, NO. You don't have the power capacity to run 3 AC units. If 3 AC units were to try and start compressors at the same time, it would be 60 amps or more. Now add microwave, television, water heater if electric, and there is no way a 50 amp service will handle it. 50 amp service is the max you will find at a campground.

Most places that have a 50 and a 30, and a 20 amp hookup, aren't designed or wired so that you can add them all up and get 100 amps. The plugs are parallel, and the most you can get out of the pedestal is usually 50 amps, or 60 amps, 30 per side of a 220 feed. Maybe you have been lucky, or don't camp in super weather, or don't run a lot of other electric stuff.

Smoo are you willing to pay extra for your site? You are paying for a 50 amp site not a 50 and 30 amp. You are stealing from the campground when you rob extra power. The owner has to make a profit and if everyone did what you are doing the cost of camping will go up in order to off set the costs.

If you are using more then one plug on the electric post you are stealing power. The post is wired for all three but this does not mean you can plug into all three outlets. When you register for a site you are asked if you want 50, 30 or 20 amp service. You are then charged for the service you choice. When you plug you unit into the 50 amp service and then plug into the 30 or 20 amp you are stealing hydro from the campground. The only time I will use more then one plug is if i am on a meter and am paying for all the hydro that I use.
