Are you tired of tripping 15 amp breakers with your 30 amp travel trailer, fifth wheel, or motorhome? Then it’s time to install a 30 amp RV outlet onto your home! With a receptacle that matches the amperage rating of your RV you’ll be able to run high draw appliances without having to worry about tripping circuit breakers.

For those of you with 50 amp RV’s, keep in mind that the installation process is not the same for a 50 amp outlet. 50 amp RV outlets require a different circuit breaker as well as different wiring. However, I still recommend watching the video as there are tips and tricks shown on how to trim around the receptacle box for a professional finished look, general home electrical panel wiring tips, and steps on how to test the new RV receptacle when finished.

The total cost of this RV project was only about $60 and can be done in an afternoon. However, be sure to consult a licensed electrician before taking on a job like this. Watch the video below to see how we wired a 30 amp RV outlet onto our home!

    Hmmm, I'd have to start earlier in the morning so I could be drinkin by noon…! 😉🍻
    Great video! I've always wondered how to do this project but, I have a fairly healthy fear of electricity and really need to be alive at noon for better things! 🤭

    I just had a 30a breaker installed at my house a few weeks back. My dad, who's been in the RV business for almost 40 years gave me an important piece of advice: Make sure the electrician is absolutely clear that it's a 120v outlet, not a 220v! He said he's seen the results of such a mistake and it's not pretty!

    Your video saved me. I couldn't figure out why my reader continued to say I had an open neutral. Found out the person I bought the camper from said the hook up was 220 volts, and not 110 volts. Which created the open neutral problem. I am glad I watched your video before I plugged my RV into the receptacle.

    I need this instead of trying to use a 15 amp adapter. Anyone know what a. Electrician would charge?

    Please check the latest requirements. A GFI protection is now required on RV lines. Also, there should be beaker in the box. Turn off the breaker before plugging in to prevent arcing. The RV breaker boxes on the market with a breaker won't meet code by themselves. Also, code call for the box to be 4 1/2 feet off the ground.
