|Either forward or rear
plugs can be
at 30 amp extension cord to connect the camper electrical system to
power. When both connections are made as shown in these pictures,
camper power is supplied from the generator.
This wiring scheme is simple, flexable, requires
no relays or switches,
and eliminates the possibility of 115 vac generator power being
into the utility grid. It also prevents 115 vac grid power from
back-fed into the generator.
I have also fabricated a 25 foot 12 gauge
extension cord, with a 30
amp female connecter for the RV and a 15 amp household plug on the
for connecting to 15/20 amp household power outlets.
