Mine trips the 30 amp breaker with everything on electric. I think these rigs should have been wired 50 amp as standard.

I agree that it should have been 50 amp because they definitely need a second ac. They are too big for only one.

We just spent several days down at gulf shores. Mid 90's not much shade and the single A/C worked but rarely turned off until about an hour after the sun went down. So yes if it had the second it would be much better. And as we discussed earlier w/ the 50amp wiring we never tripped a breaker even with coffee pot, ac, water heater, Resi fridge - everything running and no issues....

Camped this past weekend and had a power issue ourselves. We have the residential refrig that runs off an inverter as we are driving and it had been plugged in for 24hrs at home so I know it was cold. We got to the site and set up, plugged into the 50 amp plug, turned on both A/C and left to play with the kids. Came back several hours later to open the fridge to find that it was warm and not blowing air but the light was on in it. The freezer was cold as ice and blowing strong. Turned off the second air and the fridge came back to life. So I put the water heater on gas to save power and didn't use the second ac again. Called the dealer they said it sounded like the power to the site was bad. Checked and it was 115 on one leg 119 on the other and 233 across both, think I did it right? The camp ground did say they had some power issues across camp were one of the underground legs was bad but that should have not effected us they said. Anyone think the numbers are off enough on to cause a problem? This was our first time using second air so I don't know if there is a problem or not there.

Just a guess but you may have been pushing it. Converter would have been drawing a bunch of amps to charge your batteries after running the fridge. I bet if you leave water heater on propane you would be good to go. Just a guess though

When we hooked to power we turn the inverter off. The inverter is only on when not plugged into power. It converts the truck power to 120v or the camper battery if dry camping to 120v.

We are currently at a site that the water pressure is pretty poor. Anyone think it would hurt to run my pump out of fresh tank with the city water hook to boost the pressure just for showers

The are separate systems so that won't work. But do fill and use your pump from the freshwater tank if it has better pressure
