Used this exact system, feeding a pair of 12 outlet power strips (one in the galley, one in the cabin) and it's PERFECT! works like a champ and all who see it are impressed! Thank you for this!

I would like to do something similar but have a 30a break box in line. Does this graphic look correct? Image

My main power is 110v off a old farm house. My intent is to run a Ac/heat unit and charge my cell phone.

Why seperate circuits for each 20 amp outlet?

When connected to 30 amp shore power, and also to isolate the air conditioner on its own.

How many BTUH is your A/C? You probably don't need a 30a circuit for that. 20a plugs are much more comment than 30a in the rest of the world. I run my A/C and everything else on 20a for 10 years now.

Do that many members only camp at serviced sites?

I always assumed we were mostly off grid. . .

Can't answer to that, but the diagram showed a 30 amp plug, which lined up with a logical explanation.

You will need a Marinco 150BBI.RV RV On-Board Charger Inlet, available at Amazon.com for about twenty bucks. You also need a one-to-three short power cord, available from HD or Lowes, a hole saw for your power drill, some wire cutters/strippers, and a screw driver.

If you want, you can opt for a GFCI equipped short cord, like mine.

Drill the hole for your Marinco charger inlet.

Cut the three-prong end off of the power cord, and separate and strip the three conductors to attach to the charger inlet.

Slide the rubber cover from the charger inlet over the cord, and poke the wires through the hole in your wall from the inside to outside.

Attach the three conductors securely to the charger adapter. Slide the rubber cover up to cover the insides of the charger inlet and connections.

Insert the power inlet into the hole in your wall, and secure it with the three mounting screws that come with the inlet. A rubber gasket with a cap for the inlet comes with the inlet to keep it watertight.

You now have a super simple system that can handle 15 AMPS. I plug my Heater or AC into one outlet depending on the season. In my galley, I mounted a surge-protecting power strip. I plug that into another outlet. I have one open outlet for use as needed.
