Amp Decision

Here's antoher question for all you RVers out there. With my Jayco 29QBH which amp site do I want. We use to reserve the 30amp sites in the 19H, but do I need to 50 amp site on this new trailer? We will run the air conditioner, the microwave, the tv and the dvd player.

Thanks,

30 amp service. 50 amp is for the larger units such as Fivers with 2 AC units, for example.

If your new Jayco 29QBH has 30Amp plug, then rent 30A lots. If your Jaycop 29QBH comes with 50A, then run 50A plugs. One can connect 50A cords into 30A plugs (using a special adaptor) but it means they cannot run ALL items at the same time. As Crabman stated, can only run 1 x AC unit + mircowave at the same time. 2 x AC units would flip the braker on the 30A service.

Hope this helps..

Is the 29QBH equipped with 50A? My 30.5BHLT has 50A, but has one A/C so I wouldn't hesitate to use a 30A site, but of course 50A doesn't require an adapter.

According to Jayco`s standards and option page, all Jayflight travel trailers have 30 amp service standard. The 29QBH is a Jayflight series TT.

In the Super Lite section, they don't list the 30.5BHLT (only the 31.5 RLDS) as having 50A, but it does.

The 50 amp has 4 prongs, correct? And the 30 amp 3 prongs. The OP can confirm his service by # of prongs on his power cord. This is a 50 - 30 adapter

I find it odd that Jayco only puts 30A cords on their tts. The Jayco 330RLTS has a 50A panel (two 50A mains, each feeding a bank of 120v breakers) but is wired for a 30A cord (although I hear if one orders the second air conditioner, Jayco upgrades the cord to 50A). That seems kind of goofy to me.

And here`s an interesting discussion about how easy you can trip the 30 amp breaker with too much stuff turned on:
