Ideal plug

We are building a house and want to make sure that we have the correct size plug for the Airstream where it will be stored so that if anyone wants to stay in it, it will supply the power needed. What should it be? Higher than the standard wall sockets?

We are staying in it full time right now at my brother's while building and it blew the socket last night (during the night) with the AC, refrigerator and clocks. It has been doing fine for the last week though with other things going during the day.

I think we are on a 30 amp circuit.

Normal household outlets are 20 amp. You want a 120 volt, 30 amp RV recepticle. There are at least two other 30 amp recepticles of which I am aware at electric supply houses, so make sure you get a RV type.

Thanks, that was very helpful. I will be taking all of this info home to my husband so he can get it set up. I search for information, so he can put it in place (correctly).
