Calculating Electrical Load

When connecting appliances to the electrical system, remember that 120-volt power usage is limited to a total of 100 amps. Be mindful of the fact that each operating appliance collectivley places an added load on your 120-volt electrical system.

An unintentional "trip" of a circuit breaker may occur if you overload the RV's and/or campgrounds electrical system. The amperage rating of individual appliances can be calculated by dividing appliance wattage consumed (120 for a 120-volt appliance). For example; 1200 watts divided by 120-volts equals 10 amps.
