To get a better feel of how many appliances you can run at once you should know which appliances use the most power. In general, the appliances used to heat and cool will use the most energy. Things like your air conditioner, microwave, electric water heater, curling iron, hair dryer, and space heater use between 10-15 amps (depending on brand and efficiency).
Coffee pots, electric frying pans, food processors, refrigerators, and toasters will use anywhere from 5 to 9 amps.
Things like your TV, CD/DVD player, fan, radio, or vacuum, will use 3 or less amps.

Hi, I'm Robbie. Welcome to Money-Saving-RV-Repair.com!
Like the name implies, this site is all about helping you save money while keeping your RV in tip-top shape--and that is all about you having the knowledge to do so.
I've been a technician in the RV industry for 30 years, operating out of San Diego, California. And let me tell you, I love my job.
But I also love empowering RVers with the knowledge they need to make the right decision on repairs, or to make the fix themselves--and that, my friend, is the reason for this website. I hope you enjoy.
