Just fantasizing about how it'll be when we get the Mini Lite at the end of this season.)
You can easily just turn off the water heater on electric (if equipped) when drying your hair....then turn it back on when done. The water heater has a thermostat on it, and the electric element will only energize if the water falls below a certain temp. There's a good chance the element won't even come on while drying your hair....................or you can also just use the propane side of the water heater...and don't worry about the electric heating element and the amps it uses.
If your RV comes equipped with a Suburban electric/propane water heater, this may help.
Suburban's electric switch and much more
The microwave may be another one, to make a note of not to use when using the hair dryer.
It's just a little learning curve what you can have on, and what you must turn off...at the same time. You'll master it quickly.
Dang it, now I'm a liar. I said I wouldn't hijack this thread anymore. LOL
