New '69, 110 adapter too much for AC?

Well, we're official newbies again! Our '07 27' Safari now has a little sister -- Little Orphan Annie -- a '69 31' International Sovereign Land Yacht (geeze) which we are restoring. She comes out of the shop today and we were wondering if it's possible to use an adapter for the 30 amp electrical cord (while we work on her) and plug into 110 and still run the original, commercial style AC. I've heard this is suicide in our '07 for the AC, but my grandmother says in the older units, people used to do it all the time.

The temps will be hovering around 103 tomorrow and Sunday, and we are in full sun. AC sure would be nice -- even if we're in and out of the door all day.

Either way, wish us luck. We can't wait to spruce her up!

Congrats on your new AS. As for the use of an adapter, I'd avoid it. The adapter is the weak link in your supply chain. If the current draw is reduced you may burn up the AC, or if you're lucky you'll only fry the adapter.

At 100+ degree temperatures your AC will need all the juice it can get to keep you reasonable comfortable.

Regards,

Kevin
