I would buy enough 50 amp extension cords and daisy chain them. They are thick enough to handle the 30 amp (and them some) and you can use them in the future. 50 amp cords are designed for 50 amps per leg, so they can easily manage 15 amp per leg.

What does "extending the plug" mean. My novice is showing, I'm aware, lol.


He has his plugs and outlets confused. He meant runnng an underground line to an outlet box near the RV. Which by the way original poster is the best way to do it and if you can why not run a 50 amp box (Standard park box) and forget the extension cords.


Home is where I park it.

100ft
i assume thats as close as you can get and be reasonably level ?

trees or other structures in the way

that far from the house, why not run your generator during the day when it is the hottest period, and more likley to have low voltage power problems

a 20 or 30 amp power outlet, your going to struggle during the day if you need the MW, coffee maker, toaster or any other high draw item, while the A/C is running

you can't run (2) high draw items on a 20 amp home circuit at 100ft of extension cord
