Residential Fridge

I'd like to get the fridge cooled down the day before we leave on a trip. The camper will be at home. Is there a way to get it going without the batteries. Is there a way to connect to the house 110?

You can plug your trailer into an 110V outlet at your home. I plug my 5ER into the 110V, 20 AMP outlet all of the time to run the fridge and lights when needed.

You will need a 3 prong 110 adapter plug that will adapt to either a 30 AMP or 50AMP cord which ever your camper uses. Just remember that you cannot use the A/C in the trailer.

Just buy an adapter. I have a 30 amp so I have a 30amp to 110 adapter. Works great. You can get them at Walmart or amazon.

So do they make a 20 to 50 adapter?

I haven't heard of a 20 to 50 adapter. I have the 50 amp to 3-prong extension cord adapter, a 30 amp to 3-prong adapter, and a 50 amp to 30 amp RV adapter. I keep a selection, because you never know what you will need. I use the 30 amp RV plug to 3-plug extension cord adapter when connecting the RV to a regular 15amp-limit residential extension cord.

The outlet plugs in my garage are all 20AMP outlets, but they do accept a standard 110/115 male plug from an extension cord. I just had the electrician install 20 AMP circuit breakers and the proper wire gage for these circuits. This way I don't trip the circuit breakers for the garage if I pull more than 15AMPS on the circuit.

Its not that hard to put in a 30 amp service for your trailer for use at home. I ran one from the breaker box in my oldest barn to the side of the same barn where our carport is. I can plug in our trailer and have 30 amp service any time. I can use the AC or whatever I would normally use. If there's room for a 30 amp 110 breaker in your box it is pretty easy.
