The spot we are planning on spending most of the winter has a single 30 amp connection, and See has developed an addiction to electric heaters
. So if I want to use my electronics through the winter I need to set up a distribution box, and stop working with just a 15 amp cord.
My electrical knowledge comes from helping my father (ex handyman) work on a projects around the house when I was younger. So it's a bit spotty, and I've only worked on a distribution box once. I can wire a lamp from scratch if that helps.
I'm wanting to put in a simple 30 amp box, and have 2 outlets on separate circuits as close as possible to it so that wiring is easier. Even considering building them all into a box and mounting that. Is there a minimum distance an outlet should be from the panel?
Do I need a box specifically for rvs or will just any hardware store carry a panel that will work?
Are these simple to wire yourself. I.e Plug hot wire here, and neutral there?
Are there any safety issues above and beyond normal electrical safety to be aware of?
Next time I hit a library I'll be looking up books on wiring, see if I can find anything helpful.
