[font=Comic Sans Ms]Hi everyone! I just talked my husband into buying a popup tent. We're brand spanking new to camping but I think my two girls will love it. Can anyone tell me what's the difference between 50amps vs 30amps (besides 20amps biggrin.gif )? Which is better any why?

popup,

Good information and most people do not understand the rating system on AC Power. I over build everything in AC work, use larger wires, buy top grade parts, and have no problems due to AC power. One lighting protecting system on our house cost me over $400 plus the two 30 amp ckt brks to power it up. You can see the different in the $2.37 over the $24.14 grade outlet. We see burned out 30 and 50 amp receptacles all over the place as we travel. We also see same problem with the camp ckt brks. Some people try to run everything in an RV unit at the same time.
