thanks for the info guys.
I may as well take a online electrician course. It will help a lot. LOL
Now all this will be very interesting but not sure if is worth it just for the trailer.
But since we are building a shed on the back.
Will be a lot more worth it to have another semi-panel on the shed?
1 30A braker to the AS
1 20A for a window AC
1 20A for outside outlets
1 20A for all tools (Like table saw/ cutters/ drills etc?)
Now how do we do that? Does it need to come from the main braker or just out of the meter.
If we can get from the meter that will be about 60 ft.
BTW, is not like we are planning on max everything all at once but just wondering...

Decide how much amperage you want. I expect 60A at 220V would be about right. Now get a sub panel with about 6 breaker positions in it. Put this in the shed where the AS is kept. Now run wire to the main panel in your house that is big enough for 60A or bigger if you are going 100ft. Typically large buss wires that lead to your house are aluminum. 100A trailer aluminum hookup wire is cheap and it works fine. Now you need a 60A 220V double pole breaker in your main house box. All the wireing can be done with the breaker removed from the main box. When you are all done you plug the breaker in the main box. If you don't feel comfortable doing this then hire an electrician to put the breaker in the box. If you get the inspectors and electric company involved you might as well bend over. They will want to inspect everything. Then they will tell you that you need a bigger service for the house. They will want you to bring your whole house up to the current code. They might even want you to put in a separate meter at the shed. Make sure that everything is grounded.
