Little curiosity here? I have very limited experience with full hookup camp sites. I've only rented two trailers in my life and one was used only at a primitive site. So basically, with the other trailer, all I did was drive up, plug in and settled down for a couple days. I did not pay any attention to how many or what types of outlets were available. So, if any of the more seasoned full hook-up campers could help me visualize what I should have seen, had I paid attention, perhaps I can understand better.
The Super Simple Electrical System sounds and looks great. I suppose, if a feller wanted to, he/she could dedicate one of the outlets to the battery bank (Smart Charger), that would be providing power for the 12VDC lights, fans, outlets, etc. Which could work out great. I won't have to install a Breaker Box with 20A and 15A Circuit Breakers.
I guess my question is based on a part of the thread where the discussion turns to melting your power cable or needing an adapter for those high speed 30AMP Outlets.
If this is an issue, why use a 12/2 GA Plug/Inlet? Don't they make these cable in a more compatible guage?
Are the outlets at most campgrounds "TYPICALLY" 30AMPs requiring a special trailer inlet and 10 Gauge power cord to connect with?
Do the campgrounds not provide regular household outlets, like most of us have in the garage?
I've copied and modified a electrical wiring diagram, that I am still trying to filly understand. However, if I do not need the Electrical panel, then I can change things now rather than later.
