I've been thinking about using only 15 amp service this fall on our trip to VT, NH, ME, and Prince Edward and Nova Scotia, Canada since we probably will not need the AC. I usually use a hot pot to heat water for dishes and coffee or a small electric skillet for breakfast - but not at the same time since they are both rated for ~12 amps.
So I'm thinking about using a 12 gauge 25' extension cord instead of the 30 amp cord for convenience purposes and ease of handling. I will not use the hot pot or skillet at the same time due to their amp draws.
So should I just plug into the 15 amp outlet in the pedestal without a surge protector, or, plug my 30 amp surge protector into the 30 amp outlet and then use my 30 to 15 amp adapter to plug the extension cord into in order to have surge protection? There are 15 amp circuit breakers in the [email protected]
Please let me know of potential electrical downfalls you might see with this kind of set-up.
