It kind of makes sense.Curious if people use more than one kind.
Never stayed at an RV park.
I was looking at two 120v receptacles, then just have a few different xxxV / xxAMP adapters for whatever is there.
Does that make sense, or is there some electrical voodoo reason that is a bad idea....
Here is what I mean.
Taking the power from these into two 120v receptacles, depending on what is there
The two 120v 15 amp sockets are likely sharing the 15 amp circuit so your not doing anything except likely popping the 15amp breaker.
I always thought Jolly ’ol England household normally has 230V singlephase ? What means try as one might using some hazardous dualplug contraption, 230V is all that you get. (Disregard 115V building sites..)Over here the standard household max Amps is 13A = 3120w.
It's funny I have always thought it was 240v but they claim its 230v but when you measure it it is always 240v,I always thought Jolly ’ol England household normally has 230V singlephase ?

Probably the worlds safest design of plugs & receptacles too !
It depends on how many amps the outlets are. Most standard household outlets are 15 - 30 amps. I always made mine out of minimum 12/3. To be totally safe then 10/3 is a better choice. The cord I described is very useful and served me well when I was in the temporary power industry in the 90's. We used them mostly for daisy chaining GFI boxes from small 25KW generators that were pulling light loads at construction sites.So how many amps at 208V can you get from such a contraption ?
And if you really want to mess things up try using North American 60 HZ frequencies on delicate audio and video equipment. When I was in the generator industry we had to adjust our HZ on the generators to accommodate foreign performers equipment. It was a very difficult process to get it just right to avoid feedback and buzz.An electrical engineer, who is likely to care about power, will probably use RMS voltage, as that more accurately captures the area under the curve. (This is the value most directly analogous to a DC voltage.)
I disagree. Makes no difference how much power you connect to. Your unit should have a main breaker and sub circuit breakers protecting the truck and appliances. Which is exactly how homes work too.No,
Those ’splitter adaptors’ shown have no ’15 amp circuit’ to connect to.
Each of their 15/20 amp receptacles are directly connected to a 30 or 50 amp circuit that its plugged into.
It works but not very safe. Especially for people of low electrical understanding.

On the other end, if the power supply is 15amp and you are drawing 30amps. That 15amp service supply breaker will give you a black out.
