[20amp outlets can power anything in your RV, one at a time, anyway - as nothing will be using more than 20amp on it's own... even a roof air conditioner is only powered thru a 20amp breaker.... the breaker TRIPS, though, when you try to power too many things at the same time - no TV or cooking pot or even a space heater is going to need more than 20amps of power, but managing 'when' these things are all running at the same time is the trick - we ALL have to be concerned with these things, even those of us with 50amp coaches]

When you say 'bump up to 30amp or 50amp'... are you referring to the incoming power, or your RV's Main Panel capability?

'Where' are you plugged in? A house? An rv park? a generator?
Our Rv is a 1987 Fleetwood south wind we are staying on our friends property the breaker and the RV top off at 20 AMPS, we have a built in A/C, the refrigerator is running on electricity, and our phone chargers are plugged in and the owner showed us how many attempts they made to fix the furnace through paper work and it needs replaced ($3,000) so we have been using a small space heater hear and there. We barely use the AC unit. We are in Colorado and there is about 4 inches of snow right now. With everything off and everything unplugged we cannot turn on the 40in TV amd with everything off and unplugged we cannot turn on the ps4.
