Motor Home Outlet
Providing a Disconnect Switch for a Motor Home
The 30 amp service for the motor home may be brought into a sub panel where a 30 amp circuit breaker may be installed and used as a disconnect switch. The 30 amp circuit breaker would feed the 30 amp receptacle where the motor home would be plugged into.
This electrical project should be installed with a permit and all work should be inspected.
