Hello all. I have a 2019 Freedom Elite 22fe. Before trips I always, with an adapter, plug in to the electricity of the house to turn Fridge on so that it's cold and we can put things in it ahead of time.
But I was wondering if I can use the AC the same way. By being plugged in to house power. I have a unit on roof. Turns on and off with knobs. No thermostat. It's a small unit.
As long as your electrical amp draw does not exceed the circuit you are plugged into. For instance if your plugged into a 15 amp circuit, and your AC draws 12 amps, and your fridge draws 2 amps you can safely run those two on your RV plugged into that circuit, but not much else.
You'll want Cavie or someone like him to weigh in on this thought.
Check the plug at the receptacle once in a while to be sure it's not running warm/hot. I'd just brought my coach home and proceeded to clean it. I was running my A/C while that was going on. A few hours. It was a 30A breaker with 220 and and 120 at the breaker box. When I went to unplug the cord, it was hot to the touch. It never threw the breaker so I'm not sure what the deal was but I suggest you babysit it for a while to make sure you don't burn down the rig or the house to the ground.
