Adding separate 30 amp service

I am looking for a parts source. I want to install a separate breaker box, and wiring for some extra circuits. I am having trouble locating the power cord receptacle mounted to the trailers exterior, and a breaker box like the existing one from Square D in our 1997 Airstream. I would like the exterior plugin to be like the new trailers with the chrome/marine type.

The purpose it to provide power for a second A/C, the electric side of my water heater, and a new electric radiant floor heat system.

Thanks in advance

Go get a Marinco type inlet. Then a small breaker box...usually 4 will be the smallest.....any electric supply will have it. Then circuit breakers for the box....I use double ones so I can have eight separate circuits. Make one a 30 amp for the master inlet source. then 12 x 2 romex to your outlets.

Here is a source for the Marinco Inlet. You can also find them at most marine stores and sometimes Camping Whirled.

Would this be legal and safe? I'm thinking of two separate services, and say one is to campground power and the other to a portable generator. Not that you would, but that someone could.

Separate potentials, neutrals, grounds within a metal trailer doesn't sound good to me.
