2013 Sterling Wildcat second A/C unit

Question 4. The forward blower unit reads AC Ready. I have not used for A/C so I can not verify until I get 50 amp service.

Partially Answered.
Note: My DW assured me Saturday that it was A/C because the man who walked us through had it on. We turned it on for an hour as it cooled us. Result: a popped 30 amp breaker at the pole. We have not turned it back on and we have not had any overload (at least none that pop our circuit breakers.

As a teacher my signature was, If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.

As a novice Glamper, it still applies.

You can't run both A/C's on 30 amps. One or the other. Also get a volt meter and check your voltage where you camp when the A/C is on. Do not try to run below 112 volts. It will run but it's had on the unit. It will burn out the compressors. Everyone talks about 110/220 volts. But in reality, 115/230 is nominal.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant
