breaker size for motorhome
I'm looking at running a wire out from my main panel to a pole in my pasture to hook up a motorhome or travel trailer. The distance should be less than 100'. I'm trying to find out what size breaker I will need to handle the load for a typical motorhome. I don't know what the power requirements are since I don't own one it is so when friends come to visit I can have a plug for them to use. I have a lot of 8 gauge wire direct burial which I could use on a 40amp breaker. Or should I go up to a 50 amp and run a 6 gauge wire? If I use the 6 gauge I will need to buy some wire.
