I have a 50 amp 120/240 camper power cord going 250 ft. I've been trying to find what the voltage drop is. Can anyone help me with the formula? Thanks Steve I will have to assume the amperage at 50 amps max.
A customer is wanting me to get this cord for him. He has a customer who is going to park a "medical RV" on his property. The RV will be approx. 250 ft. away. I'm thinking I need to discourage him from doing this at that distance. Sounds like he's going to burn something up in his RV with low voltage, as well as overheating the cable. I don't know what the total amperage used will be, but his a/c unit, refrigeration equipment, etc. may take a toll from the lower voltage, especially if he need's #3 instead of #6. Plus the price of the cable is going to be around $ 860.00 for that type of cable. I'm still looking for a second opinion here. I couldn't get the nooutage.com calculators, it wouldn't come up. Could be a mighty costly mistake if I get the wrong wire for him:( Thanks
This is a lot more than just voltage drop but the voltage drop is in "electrical". I suppose you could pare down the rest of the stuff if you are a BASIC guy but this thing is not really that big. I did not write this. It was an IBM guy I knew. Set your shortcut to run "info.bat"
