One of the biggest appeals of a recreational vehicle is the ability to take on the open road without having to leave all of the comforts of home behind. RVs, however, relies on batteries to power its electrical system, which is a far cry from the electricity you find in your home.

What Causes a Faulty Outlet for an RV?
Why do electrical outlets made specifically for RVs seem so much more prone to problems than standard outlets in the average home? For starters, the electrical systems in RVs are simply not built to the same standards of quality as those in the average home. Whereas homes have stringent standards for electrical safety and durability that must be adhered to by law, RVs don’t have nearly the same level of durability, so many manufacturers simply don’t make them as well. While this does keep costs down, it is only further exposed by the fact that RVs are not stagnant. They move, and the vibration of miles of road travel as well as repeated use can all cause issues to come up rather quickly. It’s not uncommon for rubbing wires to cause shorts or simple connections to come loose inside a receptacle due to the rigors of travel.
In these cases, issues within your RV can affect the outlet and hookups outside of it, causing uneven power, shorts, or the outlet to not provide an adequate charge. While we cannot fix the electrical issues inside your RV, we can ensure the outlet on your property is functioning properly, providing adequate electricity every time you plug your RV in.
Installing a New Outlet for Your RV
Having a dedicated outlet to charge your RV is a smart idea. Plugging your RV in while it’s at home will keep its batteries healthy and charged, meaning you will be able to use your RV’s electrical components, such as the heating, cooling, and refrigerator, while it is parked on your property.
In general, RVs require an outlet that is slightly different from those in your home. Normal home outlets are usually rated at 15 amps, while those that work better for RVs are rated at 20 amps and higher. We can even install a powerful 50 amp outlet for large motorhomes. These higher amp outlets require special wiring and a new breaker designed for your specific outlet. In addition, if you are installing your outlet outside, there are additional considerations and safety measures to take into account, including water- and weather-proofing, mounting issues, and a convenient placement so your RV can be easily plugged in.
