Talking WooHoo 50 amp service

This really is not a trailer mod but I just finished installing a 50 amp outlet in the garage so I'm able to run both A/C's in the trailer at home.
Outlet box and wire were only around 30 dollars...

Now you will have to pay for two more a/c added to your light bill...
Congrats are now in order...

I really should do the same here except for two 30A receptacles... I have been running two separate 20AMP house circuits for several years here in my CAMP BACKYARD...

It must be warm at your house.

$30? You must have only needed about 5 feet of wire You'll like the ability to plug into all the power you need at home.

I want to add a 30A box on the side of my house right off my breaker box. I keep my TT parked right beside it when not in use so this would be good for a camping staging area or even a camp driveway for the kids and not ruin extension cords all over the place. nice "mod" btw.

When we had our PUP I ran a 20 Amp outlet to the front of the garage to plug it into (GFCI of course). Then when we bought the 30U I dropped a 30 Amp right under the panel and out the wall. Now the wife can hide out there on hot day and use the AC while she crafts or what ever it is wife's do while we men folk are away. and I still have the 20 Amp for power in the driveway with the big door closed.
