Roo 233S - 30A or 50A

Hi again!
So I am searching all over the web to find out if this unit has a 30A or 50A system. I cannot find anything on the FR site, nor on any dealers spec. information for an inventory model. I'm actually going to see a model this weekend and I'm sure I could find out then...I'm just kinda curious now.

If it is a single A/C it is most likely 30 amp. 50 amps in a Roo is a bit overkill.

30A. only bigger RVs have 50A systems, most having 2 a/c's which require that much power to run both.

Yep. Definitely 30A.

Here's a picture of a common RV pedestal that offers (from left to right) 50A, 30A, and 20A

You can see the differences in plugs. The Roo will have a male electrical cord that fits the 30amp, which is the only one with diagonal plugs so that will help ID.

The only units that come 50 amp have two air conditioners, or can be upgraded to to two air conditioners. Everything else is 30 amp.

Smile Always Ask One More Question

Hopefully, you'll get to "see" actual models. We bought a 233S 2012 Roo sight unseen. There was one 2011 Roo located within a 100 miles of us out of 12 RV dealerships in that 100 mile radius. The '11 Roo had too dark an interior for us and we began custom building our Roo online with the help of a "sight unseen" salesman we connected with at Orlando's RVOne. They offered the best price in Roos we could find in the South. After "building" the Roo from pictures and the saleman's help, we paid a down payment. As the camper was being built, Forest River began producing '12 models. We paid '11 prices, but received unpaid for upgrades going from '11 to '12. TV, U-dinette, battery shut-off switch, and other changes came with our '12 camper. We had planned to add our own tv, had wanted a U-dinette (but it wasn't a '11 option), and like the hickory cabinets better than the oak, we had ordered. We have tent camped (20 years/5 different tents), spent 12 years in a popup, and 3 months in a Roo. With 3 beds, my wife, my dog, and myself all sleep well. Of course, when the granddaughters were camping with us last month, I sleep under the camper. Enjoy your looking...take your time...ask a million and one questions and you'll do great.
