On our maiden voyage 2 weekends ago we were staying at the Yogi in Millbrook, IL when a severe thunderstorm came through the very first night. Reminded me of the scene in Twister at the drive in. Luckily I had radar on my iPhone and was able to get everything packed away. That storm shook the camper like it was a carnival ride. One city north in Plano, IL they had a micro burst which did some hefty damage. Then that Sunday night a Durecho came through the Chicagoland area and wrecked havoc though my neighborhood. Luckily where we were we only got a light rain shower. The ride home was interesting. Lots of downed trees. We had no power for 2 days. My wife came up with the idea to create an adapter cord for our generator to power the camper so we had air conditioning. This was the start of last week when we were over 100 deg each day. The generator had a 50 amp socket so I created an extension cord with the 50 amp on 1 side and the 30 amp (110v) on the other. Ran the camper like a dream and we were nice and cool that night. Great way to break in the camper.
