RV ELECTRIC – HOW TO HOOK UP SHORE POWER TO YOUR RV. In this video, you’ll learn How To Hook Up Shore Power Or Electricity To Your Motorhome/RV. Shorepower is one of the RV utilities provided at an RV park or campground vs boondocking to get power. I’ll be using a 30 AMP hookup for my 2018 Winnebago Era 170M.

Here is the Transcript for the video:

Okay, so essentially from here to here is my power. Do you ever wonder how I get power in my rv? In this video, I’m going to teach you all about hooking up your rv to shore power and if you don’t know what that is, that means that if I want to have electricity in the RV, I need to have it from some type of power source. Shore power means I’m actually hooking up at a campground or an rv park. Be sure to stay tuned until the end because I’m going to be sharing some of the mistakes that I made during this process of hooking up and RVing. Don’t make the same mistakes I did so make sure and stick around until the end. I’ll be sharing those. This is what you want to know. I’m going to show you how I hook up. This is my hookup. When you come to plug up, you’re going to get all of your outlets out. For me, this is a 30 amp and that’s just the type of power that this is. Some rvs are also like a 50 amp and they have converters that you can do to change that out, but for this one, since we’re kind of like what they consider I guess a smaller unit, we have a 30 amp. so we’re going to plug in to this to get power into the RV. These are like your typical outlets that you have in your house, your 120 volts and you can use these as well, but not to power the RV. You actually could use these to power the RV and I have a little tool I’ll show you. Actually I think I have a video already, but yeah I do, this plugs my power up and then I have to flip right here and say, Hey, I want to get power to my unit now before you normally flip that I would plug up over here and what I do is I just plugged this into my rv so this just screws on. It’s nothing like serious screws on. Pop it in. You can see it’s just the hookup. You want to make sure this is snug and then this screws on to help. Keep the water out. And then like mine has a little light here, so that kind of lets me know from here to here is my power. So now you know how to hook up your rv at the Rv Park, campground to shore power, some type of external electrical source. You don’t want to make the same mistakes that I’ve made.
