Rich, I am referring to the OP's link to the cheater available at

Yes, your "system" will work without fail, but you are not tying the additional 20 amp circuit into your trailer's power system where you do not know what all is tied to that "leg".

I have a friend who has retro-fitted an additional A/C unit to his trailer, and he powers it by the exact same method that you use.

ok, thanks guys, i will let Someone know he could buy the cheater and for the low, relative price and risk, might find that his Wife can run more things without tripping the breaker and thereby giving Someone a mile long lecture when he returns home.
