Electrical Question?

Can I use my 30 amp shore power in order to use the 110 outlets to do work in our '85 Excella with the battery out and the converter out? With all the rain and cold I would rather not use an extension cord thru the door or window unless I have no other choice. Definitely do not want to fry anything.

Can't imagine any reason why you couldn't. You will need a good 115vac work light but other than that...

The 110 Outlets are fed by power cables direct from circuit breaker box, and not through the power supply, so they should be OK.. As Mike noted, ALL of the interior lights run of 12V, so you won't have any lighting beyond what you bring with you, but should be solvable problem...

In Theory, there's no difference between Theory and Practice, but in Practice, there is usually a difference...

This works fine - I did exactly this when replacing our converter.
