We now have SHORE POWER ...

here at home.

I'm tellin' ya, the moment the breaker was flipped has to be the most frightening moment I've had in years.

DH kept tellin me he'd done it exactly like wmtire explained it...("he" meaning the electrician we hired)...but still.

So, just as I started to say...ok, flip it, the electrician came around the back bumper and announced...IT'S ON! (DH was leaving it up to me to decide if we plug it in tonight and try it, or wait until we return from Pigeon Forge.)

My head swiveled like it had turbo jets on it....ah...that bedroom light is fine...didn't blow out! We fired up both A/Cs, the fridge, checked the TVs and microwave and had the electrician use a volt meter in the interior outlets...we're good!

No more extension cord use here...the post and box is about ten feet from the RV now.

THANK YOU AGAIN, wmtire. You were a HUGE help.


If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?

110 volt electricity is easy. I know it can be scary to most people, but it barely registers a concern for me. I deal with 4600 volt 3 phase all the time and occasionally 34500 volt stuff. Had a newer guy working with me that was about to crap his pants, on the 34.5K system. I asked him if he knew the main difference between 4600 volt and 34500 volt? He said no. I said "open casket or closed casket". \

Funny, but that really didn't calm him down. :P
