Here are some reasons why:

Most RV parks have a strict no smoking policy and a separate area that is designated “No Smoking”. Most places do not allow open flames from campers but this is not always the case. A campground such as the Finger Lakes Camp in New York has a separate area for this. To avoid conflict with other campers and vendors it is encouraged that you stay away from any open flame or lit wood. If you do find a fire, it is encouraged that you put out the flame by yourself and that you avoid blowing any of the smoke on others.

If you have an RV Park that does not allow smoking you will want to be aware of the power converter. There is typically a power converter box on each camper and they come with a surge protector. It is important to double-check these power converters to make sure they are in good working order. Never turn off the power converter without checking it first to see if there is a power converter issue.

You will also need to double-check that the power transfer switch is in good working order. This switch allows you to plug in the electric wires to the generator. Many times when people leave an RV park there is a power outage. If a power transfer switch goes out you could lose power to your generator and lose your ability to begin enjoying your stay at the rv park.

An RV shore power option provides two separate electrical outlets. You can connect either outlet to the normal household outlet or you can connect the outlet to the solar panel. The great thing about this option is that there is no power converter required and there is no need to worry about converting from household to solar. Just plug it in.

If you still have a problem with the power, but have the proper outlets, you may need to install a surge protector. A surge protector is a device that creates an electrical barrier between the generator and the camper. A surge protector will help protect the generator if there is a problem with the main power. You should add a surge protector to the RV park’s electrical system to help protect the generator.

Last you should check the main power coming into the park to make sure you have enough electricity to operate your camper. You can determine what kind of power source you have by looking at the sign above the breaker panel. If the sign says shore power, you are relying on the shore power going into the park and if that is not a reliable source, your generator is relying on the main power going to the outlet. This can cause a power outage, especially if a storm comes through.

After you have determined the type of power going into the RV park, you can then figure out what kind of outlet will be best for you. There are basically three different types of outlets: direct, center-feed and hybrid. A direct feed allows the generator to pull power directly from the outlet, center-feeds are fed through a connection from the center of the park to an external power source and hybrid breaks the power cycle between the generator and the outlets, so the generator only pulls power when needed. Once you know what type of outlet will be best for your RV, you can plug your appliances in. If you have any special appliances, they will usually come with their own outlets.
