I noticed in the review of a campground we have reservations for, that they say use your gas and not shore power for your water heater. Why? Saw this at a campground when we were newbies which we ignored, with no ill effects. Sorry if this is a stupind question. TIA
Either the campground was trying to save money by asking it's customers to use their own propane rather than the park's electricity for their water heaters or (more likely) the wiring in the park was insufficient to support a full load at every pedestal.
We have encountered the latter many times, usually at older parks that were wired back when the typical RV didn't have two air conditioners, a microwave oven, etc. I don't recall a park asking us not to use shore power for our water heater, but I have seen many that ask that we not use space heaters.
