20 AMP Service

Recommended Posts

You might run AC but not much else at the same time.  Just be careful with microwave, induction cooking, hair drier, etc.

Turn the ac off if you want to use the microwave. The ac draws a lot on startup. Less after, when running, but no reason to push it. Lights don't draw much.


Any of us who have had two teenage girls running two hair dryers and two curling irons at the same time on a household 15 amp circuit know how well that works..... Results would likely be the same on a 20 amp circuit with the high-powered hair dryers of today...


We rarely plug in, but a friend of ours who does carries a meter and checks each outlet. Not a bad idea. Even a cheap plug in device to make sure the outlet isn't wired backwards is helpful. It's surprising, even in the US, how many outlets are not wired correctly.


Happy travels,
