Bigger rigs are set up 50 amp service, where there are 2 110 volt legs, not 220 volts !! I don't know why the previous owner would rig a 50 amp setup for a smaller camper. If you are not familiar with electricity, then you might want to get an electrician to check out your system.

On another note, a standard 30 amp camper plug could be mistaken for something different. Before messing with the electricity, why don't you post a picture with the plug here, for some advice on exactly what you have......but not by me, as I am electrical illiterate.

mtnguy, good point and thank you. I am 75% sure it is 30 amp, but I will heed the advice and get some pics and post them. We park the TT at a friends house, and at my age I will have to take several pics just to remember what options we have for future discussions and postings. LOL
