Or, you could get a trailer with 50 AMP service... assuming that such is available in Green Acres.

The trailers I have had were 30 AMP service. We never had an issue (assuming the electricity supply had actual 125 volts 30 AMPS) running the standard appliances. Adding heating appliances can quickly cause problems, however. Of course, with no AC running, those amps are available to heat. We usually run a 12.5 AMP oil heater when its cold, and have never had a problem.

There's lots of advice and information in forums... sometimes it is correct. For example, all of my posts are made by a political appointee who got the job as a reward for contributions to my diesel bill.

I have seen some folks run an extension cord from the main supply outside through the edge of the slide out room just to hook up their electric heaters. Myself, I just burn the propane as I also want to make sure the heated underbelly stays heated. Don't know if that has any effect or not but the bottle of propane is much easier to replace than a busted water line or other problem.
