Yes I agree with your thinking! Youroo!!

It's my understanding that those 30+20 to 50 cheater cables do not work on newer posts that have GFI (Ground Fault Interrupts). On older posts they might.

Added a 30 amp receptacle to mine for second a/c but also installed another distribution panel for other circuits.
Plugged both of my 30 amp cords into a 50 to two 30's adapter.
Did the same thing a couple years ago and run a smaller dorm type frig off it as well or a space heater in the cooler months. Will not work everywhere though.

itat, Yes you are right on target. I am not combining anything. Just going to use the other 15A service at the park.

I have an outlet in the bench seat of the dinette. I disconnected from main power and connected to a waterproof box with cover on the frame behind the dinette slide. The box has a male receptcle which can accept an extension cord. I run the cord to the 20 amp outlet on the power pole. Been using this for 4 years now and only once couldn't use it because no 20 amp outlet. I use the setup to run a small electric heater or a crock pot. I always heat my water with electric so if you hook up a space heater also, almost anything else will trip a breaker, thus a special outlet for the heater only.

1Tex, do you mean at the end the extension cord plugs into, you have the waterproof box with a male connection(means it accepts the standard female cord end). If so, it this a special box, never seen one with a male connector inside it. Any links on where to get this, or did you piece it together. Note you also used 20 amp, so assume you have a 20 amp cord and plug in for the post?

Has anyone done this Mod on a Roo hybrid yet?
Was debating locations?
1. Additional outlet on the island
2. Near the kitchen seat on the bathroom wall?
3. On the slide out under the kitchen seat facing the island.

We would generally use it for the radiant heater or other bigger draw items to keep the breaker from tripping if we have the coffee pot plugged in and other stuff.
I just got rid of my Roo 23SS and I had installed an extra circuit with GFI receptacle and a new breaker in the built in breaker panel. Since 30amps is supplied to the trailer and all of the outlets are on one circuit this was a better setup. Even the fridge outlet behind the panel is on this one circuit FR seemed to want to cut costs on. My new Rockwood TT will need the same modification since they are still installing all outlets on one circuit breaker. I could run 2 1500watt heaters in that Roo without tripping a circuit.
