Home or campground electrical connections don’t always match your RV’s electrical system, and that’s when a power cord adapter comes in handy.
When to use a power cord adapter
If you find yourself with a power connection that is lower or greater than your RV’s electrical system, a power cord adapter will enable you to connect and draw power. For example, when you’re at home and prepping your RV for a trip, using an adapter will allow you to connect to a standard household outlet, so you can cool the fridge and charge batteries before you go.
How to use a power cord adapter
Power cord adapters are easy to use, they simply plug in between your RV’s power cord and the available electrical outlet.
Power cord adapter limitations
Although power cord adapters enable you to connect to a connection of a different voltage, if you’re reducing the amps, you won’t be able to run things as usual. Appliances such as air conditioners and microwaves pull a lot of power, so only use them if you have enough voltage, and be careful not to overload.
