I don't recall how much it was, but I am frugal so I bet it was pretty cheap!
I think that our setups should be just about identical...

The question is: which one?
I'm figuring that a combination 30/20 amp box with breakers that is waterproof would do the trick.
Does anybody have a favorite brand? There are so many out there, that it's easy to get discombobulated during the shopping process.
Thsnkd!
Be aware that the 30 amp circuit is wired as 120 volt. An electrician not familiar with RVs might wire it as 220 volt. The 50 amp is wired 220 volt and an adapter is only going to use one leg so the coach sees 120 volts

My electrician is also an RV owner.
But you bring up a very good point!
