Above is exactly how I felt before our first trip, I knew everything would work out but at the same time I had no idea what I was doing. The first thing I do when I pull into our new spot is make sure our RV is leveled out and secured. As you can see from the picture above, this campground has both 50 and amp service. A lot of campgrounds, especially State Parks have amp service. Now that the types of connections have been established you need to decide which version you have. You can see what that looks like below:.

Can You Hook an RV Up to Your Home's Electrical System?
Recreational vehicles are designed for "boondocking," or camping without hookups. A fresh water tank, volt battery-operated appliances and holding tanks allow most RV travelers to disconnect from utilities for a few days. Hookups provide increased comfort, including the ability to use unlimited water and run items that draw a great deal of power such as televisions and air conditioners. Most RV parks provide either partial hookups, which include electricity and water, or full hookups, which add sewer service. Some deluxe parks also include hookups for cable television and telephone lines.
A constant battle with traveling across the USA is water quality and taste. In the first couple years we used to test our water at each campground but it was such a pain, now we always use a filter system. A standard hose carbon filter is a great starting point for filtration, we prefer the Culligan brand because it has a higher flow rate and lasts longer than the Camco version both are fine. From there we run our water through the softener which removes more contaminants and reduces calcium which can destroy plumbing, fixtures and your water heater.
