Hello, are you 30 amp or 50 amp?

If you are 30 amp, really gotta watch the appliance use. I have had two hard lessons learned.

Your "high amp" appliances are:

Microwave
Space heaters
Electric water heater (if your RV has one)

Curling irons and hair dryers will rank up there, too.

I just recently learned how to calculate amps if it's not on the appliance: Watts divided by volts. Most appliances are 120 volts, so if it's 600 watts, it will pull 5 amps (or 600 / 120). The Frig and even a TV factor in there, too.

I hope you have fun!
