I will drop the subject, but you missed the whole ? I am much aware of the hook up. I am on my 10th bus and have built 2 houses I'm not trying to be creative or use a cheater box. You can take high tension wire and a transformer and pull as may amps as the transformer, wiring gauge, breaker,ect will allow. If you wire a 240 stove or dryer in a residence a normal 10 gauge wire30 amp on each leg would do. I know RV is different.  Simple 1 leg of 120v 50 amp 240 supplies 50amp the hot side of 30 is 30amp. 20 amps more same voltage. Done!

I am sorry, but in my opinion house wiring and RV wiring are the same and I really do not understand this statement at all.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, a good Reisling in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming:  WOO HOO, what a ride

Richard, I agree that house wiring and RV wiring are exactly the same EXCEPT for bonding the neutral which we have discussed to death for years.

Yes, and that is only due to the different power sources, I believe. i.e. shore, genset and inverter.

The bonded neutral is typically a local code issue and is not a universal practice.

When temporary power outlets are produced the neutral and ground are not bonded, but the provision for bonding is provided with the outlet so the installer can do so to meet the local requirements.

I think the applicable standard for temporary power outlets is UL230 in case anybody needs something to read to get to sleep tonight.
