Splitter Plug in Yes, using the Newell splitter cord with a 30 amp source and a 20 amp source will give you 50 amps of 120 volt sevice. If two 30 amp services are available, this is even better, as it will give you at total of
60 amps of 120 volt service, i.e., 30 amps per leg. Understand that the standard RV "50 amp" service is 240 volts, so this provides a total of 100 amps of 120 volt power. We realize that this is confusing, but understand that we did not author the nomenclature. Just remember that 50 amp at 240 volts is fully 100 amps of 120 volt power. Ohm's Law is what they call it. And always try to find a 50 amp, 240 volt source of power for your Newell.

Hopefully this helps.

Default Splitter Plug in

This is the first post a new "Bus" owner. We just bought a 1991 Newell. The manuals speak to a splitter going to different 20 and 30 amp service boxes; yet there is a drawing showing the splitter being used with two 30 amp services.

Can you do that or should you use only 30 and 20?
