A/C Power..110 or 220

Ok this may be a dumb question here, but I wanted to put it out..... On my TT for the A/C power hook up it says 110..... I have been told that you can also run 220 to it.....Now I have not run 220 because I dont want to burn the TT down. Will the TT take 120 and 220 ? Or is the person that told me that full of crap. I did tell him that the power imput said 110 only, but he said you could 220.

No, the plug on the 110 is different then on a 220 it will not fit. If the camper sticker says 110 then you must use 110. However as far as amps, your camper requires 30 amps, you can hook up to 50 amps but you have to use an adaptor to adapt down from 50 to 30 but you are only going to pull 30 from the 50 any way.

There are no dumb questions on this forum.....everybody here has had to start from the beginning with their RVn'. You were smart to ask the question before attempting to do that hookup.

But to the guy that suggested hooking up to 220......buy him a diaper....geez.....he coulda got you in a lot of trouble. I would mark him off of your Christmas list.

Use only 110V. It should have a standard 30 amp plug on the end of the chord. There are adaptors for sale so you can go down to a 15/20 amp plug. But never plug into a 220v 50 amp receptical.

Here's the difference when looking at a 50 amp receptacle.

Typical RV 50 amp Receptacle. Basically it's 2 (120 Volt) legs of power with a neutral and a ground

50 amp 240 Volt Receptacle (Typical for a Electric Range or Welder) No neutral, just 2 legs with a ground.

This is a picture of a standard 30amp 120volt receptical found in most camping situations.

Hope this helps.

You should of told the guy, lets try it out on yours first to see if your theory is correct. I stick to what voltage the product is rated for. Anything else will damage the product and cost money in the long run. Just my 2 cents. Happy Holidays.

Thats what I was thinking...LOL. I would not hook up 220 to a 110, but I wanted to throw the question out there. I do know some equipment will do both.... Happy Holidays to all....
