Is it feasible?

We full time and i have a job at a campground with hookups however it is only 20 amps, my trailer is 50 amps. I have 2- 300 ah lifepo4 batteries and a 80 amp charger. Iím thinking of using a 4000 watt inverter to power the trailer and having the charger plugged in full time to charge the batteries. I know it is only 30 amps but it will work. What do you think.

What are you trying to run? What is your amp/hour draw?

For what it's worth. We attended many a rally at Fairgrounds with only a 20 amp outlet in our early camping days. We were able to even run our a/c as long as we had the fridge and water heater on gas. So I say what you propose should work, just be sure you adjust your elec loads as you go.

Microwave, kurig, central vac, air fryer, res fridge, other small loads. For short durations.
Hot water propane.
Have 4500 watt generator for backup if needed for AC.
Also i’m an electrician so i can figure load calculations but other advice would be helpful and appreciated.

Thanks Grumpy,
I will be taking a 20 amp circuit and turn it into a 30 amp circuit for short periods of time.

Check out this thread...it talks all about my questions and resolutions to having only a 15amp hookup for my 50 amp camper, with one A/C.

It's a long thread...I can be pretty 'wordy' but it goes through my discovery of only having 15 amps available at a site I have booked, several times this summer, my set-up and how I finally stopped panicking and THINK about how to get it done with what I have.

I installed a soft-start RV, I have a Predator 2000 generator with (only) 13.3 amp receptacle BUT I have an EcoFlow PRO 3600 watt electric generator with a 30 amp receptacle. Also 200 watts of roof solar charging my single 100ah lithium battery and 300 watts of portable solar to charge the EcoFlow.

I'm also working out and soon testing how well I do boondocking with the EcoFlow, using solar and the gas generator (during allowable times)
