Need Specifications for Power and Sewer

My son-in-law has graciously made a portion of his property in Palm Springs, CA available for storage of our 2016 Classic. He has a contractor lined up to pour a slab and make hookups for power and dumping waste (connection to sewer line). I need help getting him the specific details of how to set up 50 amp service and what sort of connection to make with the sewer. What experience have people had with this and where can I find the best information for these specifications?

Rob

If the Classic has two air conditioners, it has 50 amp 240 Vac service. #6 wire to the four prong receptacle is required, or larger if there is a long distance to the home circuit breaker box. A RV park type pedestal that has a 50 amp 240Vac receptacle,a 30 amp 120Vac receptacle and a duplex 20 amp like in the house receptacle is the best solution so any power combination is supported.

A standard 4" clean out plug and 4" pipe is used to go from the trailer side to the home sewer line. Venting comes from the trailer when dumping.

Double check the voltage for 50 amp service. Make sure you have it correct.

A RV style pedestal with a 50a 120/240V receptacle, a 30a 120V receptacle, and a 20a GFCI 120V Duplex receptacle will really be a 80a service or larger.

I sure hope that site has a carport cover. That desert sun is brutal.

I believe the 50 amp outlet is a NEMA 14-50R and a 30 amp is a TT-30. If you wire both a 30A and a 50A make sure the electrician wires the 30A as 120V not 220V. They are sometimes confused with a dryer outlet and will fry your trailer electrics if wired to the higher voltage!

If I was able to design my own hook ups, I would copy the design of a company that ran ads in the back of Trailer Life in the early 70's.
They had the electrical panel like the one that someone has already shown a picture of, on a pedestal. At the bottom of the pedestal was basin about 10 inches deep and 12 inches square. The sewer connection was at the bottom of the basin. The bottom of the basin was sloped so that any water in the basin would run into the sewer. A water facet was next to the electrical panel facing the basin and it was on a stand pipe about 2 or 3 ft. high. If you turned on the facet, the water would run into the basin. More than one facet would be a good idea.
With the basin being lower than grade level, the water in the sewer hose would flow down into the sewer without having to put anything under the sewer hose to slope it toward the drain.
The basin could be formed when you pour the concert for the pad.

No need in this unit as the receptacles are prewired. The electrician just needs to attach feed wires to the main lugs like any breaker panel.

Do be sure you have water at the site. You need it for cleaning tanks, filling FW tank and washing the rig.
