Steve P Posted December 6, 2022 Share Posted December 6, 2022 OK, dumb question alert ---->>>>> I'm fine when I have 50A service and all systems are supported, or when I'm just maintaining basic systems on a 20A outlet during the winter. My problem is that I've never camped with only 30A service where I need "all" systems. I know I probably have to set the Magnum remote panel in the center of the coach to 30A, but even before that, I'm unsure of what to do. So I have a 30A male to 50A female short converter cord (2 ft). I guess I plug that first, then I can plug my Progressive 50A power monitor into that, and then plug my 50A service cord from the coach into the Progressive? After that, set the Magnum panel to 30A? After that, I find myself down a mental cul de sac... do I just have to be careful not to run both AC/heatpump's, or any equipment that produces a combined total of 24A (80% of 30A)? And the Magnum panel display will tell me? At what point will the breaker(s) trip if at all? Also, If I run propane for heat (which only uses 12V, and fewer amps than the heat pump), does that save power? Then, I ponder what the draw is for lighting and whether or not the charger kicks in to charge the house batteries. Needless to say, I'm totally unsure of what to expect and what to do to manage power. I'm sure there is a tutorial somewhere on YouTube, so if anyone can point me to that, it would be great. BTW, I have no solar. Thanks everyone, Steve P Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
