microlite 23FB power Cord

Hi all!
New to site and about to but a new Microlite 23FB.
I have a new carport and would like run power to it and mount a Camper Receptical. Could someone tell me if this camper is 120 volt 30 amp or 50 amp? I assume it would be a 30 amp, do to small size of camper but not sure. Any help would be great.

30A. You'll rarely see 50A on anything with one AC unit on it or residential fridge, washer/dryer, ceiling fans, etc.

Look in your panel for the main breaker, 30 or 50 amp. However a 23 foot should be 30 amp. You can also look on the power cord plug, will be a 30 or 50 amp.

Unless your running the a/c you can buy an adaptor to plug the 30amp cord into a standard 15/20 amp receptacle. We have plugged ours in to run heaters, lights and charge the battery.

Thanks for the good info.
It might be nice to get one of those adapters to keep on hand for emergencys when there are no 30 amp recepticals.
I have already purchased a 30 amp camper receptical that also has a duplex receptical in the same box.
If I ever want to camp in yard on those hot summer nights, I will have AC

Be careful when wiring up the 30 amp receptical. Many electricians make the mistake of wiring the outlet for 220 volt. They wire the outlet as if it were for a dryer.
