Electric

I have a Montana wired with 50 amp service. What are the ramifications or potential prlblems when I hook into 30 amp service? And how should I prepare for the lesser amp service?

Use a 50 to 30 adapter, basically you will not be able to run the second AC unit.

The only time we ever have any problems running on 30 amps is when we have the electric hot water heater, A/C unit, toaster oven and the DW fires up the hair dryer, then the circuit breaker will trip. Just use commen since.
