Adding 120V/20A line

I saw a mod on another forum where they added a separate 120V/20A line and plug to run other things like their heater, etc. This was separate from their normal 30A plug so that 30A breaker would not blow. Has anyone done this? If so, how is it wired in the trailer?

20 amp. ckt.

It would be totally separate from everything. Look at it like adding an extension cord through a hole somewhere. I did that and it worked with a heavy duty cord and only one heater on it. Cord cost me over $100 smooth at Home Depot. Finding the hole is the problem.

I added a dedicated line to my 5ver. Used an outdoor electric box and my power cable goes thru that(which plugs into the separate plug on the pedestal)....snaked the power cord thru my storage compartment and under my cabinets and wired it to a separate GFI outlet. Works great if I need an extra heater or using some of my NuWave cooktops.
