Park Wiring 30 A Pedestal

I see lots of posts about running more than 30A by taking advantage of the 15/20 A standard outlet in the box. Most Parks are wired as below.

Large service Panel which feeds several 300-500 A sub panels. The 300-500 A sub panels then have 90A breakers each of which feed 3 30A site pedestals. If the two sites which share your 90 breaker are using all 30A then your pedestal is in fact limited to 30A total at both outlets. If the other two sites are vacant or using much less than 30A, then you can use more than your 30A by using the standard outlet,

I think you will be fine with your plan. We did 22 degrees in a pop up with furnace, electric heater and heated mattresses and was almost too warm at times.

We do use PUGs that I made that wraps around top and sides of beds. Which will help.

you'll have no trouble keeping warm.

I'll also recommend running the furnace at home prior to taking it out if it's the first time using it. We didn't do that on our maiden dry voyage and the smoke alarm scared the crap out of us (of course at 3am). I rallied the family and made them wait outside for about 30 mins while I inspected everything and finally chalked it up to the furnace burning whatever new particles were in there. Wife was not pleased, but hey, anytime is a good time to practice a fire alarm drill!
