I had the same concerns with plugging in the Windjammer into a garage outlet....especially when the grandkids land and take over the TT. I discovered that the house elec panel had a couple of spare slots...had a electrician add a 30amp circuit and an outside rv elec box. Now I don't worry when the Windjammer is plugged in.
Happy Trails

Did the same thing as "MainelyUS" showed on his post, but had enough extra amperage on my house to add a 30 and a 50 amp outlet. Yes, even on my own home, I use a surge protector for my 2015 GT 364TS.

I tried my 15K on a 20amp 120v service through a normal household wall outlet with a 100 ft 15 amp cord to see the voltage drop. 115v with no load. 113v with hvac fan only. 101v with compressor and fan. Too low for me, I turned it off. Guessing a 20amp cord would probably result in less voltage drop.

You do not want to run it on that cord! I use a 30 amp cord, same I use at campground. Voltage at home on 20 amp circuit only drops to 119 with compressor running (124 volt no load).

Make sure you get a decent adapter and not one of those cheap ones. That'll be the weak link and the cause of some of those melted plug issues you sometimes hear about.
