2800QS GTS additional power supply

After a year and half of putting an extension cord thru the garbage can closet finally got around to installing my permanent additional power supply. Installed the power inlet plug inside the stinky slinky compartment as the hose never fit. Installed a 20Amp breaker box which feeds a 20amp GFCI outlet, and than to 3 outlets, two in kitchen and one in bathroom. DW can now make coffee or use toaster oven with out drawing power from the main 30Amp power, and can use microwave and induction cook top all at same time. the one in bathroom is for the hair dryer again not using the main power has been working great.

Nice work and a very interesting way to address power management on a 30 amp coach. Most units that I have seen with a Marinco add on were done to accommodate a second A/C unit in the bedroom.

Thanks Ducky never had a issue with the one 15K AC keeping us comfortable. Cooking was another issue as we don't use the propane stove DW likes induction. That may be next project removing cooktop and adding built-in induction top
