I said back near the beginning of this thread that I thought the electrician's quote might be a bit high. But it might not be. Consider that the retail price of the necessary hardware might well be $200, before labor. Circuit breaker, 50' of 10/3 wire, weatherproof outdoor box and outlet, associated hardware. And we don't know anything about the OP's home and what might be involved in actually running the wire, including wall penetrations, pulls, mounting the outside box, etc.
I wouldn't hesitate to do it myself in my home, and I've been thinking about it. But then I think to myself, do I REALLY need to run the A/C in my TT when it's parked in my driveway, or do I just need to be able to turn on the lights or run the pump for winterizing, etc. So far I'm good with the 25' 12 ga. orange extension cord.
