I had to ask hubby to get me the info for you
Our RV was imported into the UK with the 110v working, then was converted to have the UK 230v power, the 110v is still there.
The UK Power is like the US’s 2 Phase 220v 110v on each phase
We have live 230v on one phase with Neutral phase 2 and ground for any fault current.
When we purchased her she had been upgraded with solar panels and inverter control battery charger. (Vetus Combi-Gamma 3000w Inverter).
She also has 6 large 120amp Batteries.
This allows us to have UK 230V power all the time, even without being plugged in to shore power.
The power into the RV will depend on what amps the campsites supply, some of the only supply 6 amps and others will give you 16 amps.
With the system our shore power goes into the UPS and supplies all the sockets in the RV.
If we arrive and find that the site has a small shore supply say 6 amps the inverter makes up the short fall.
We can run up to a maximum 60amps, this is far more that we will ever need.
Hope this make sense
