    I am going to assume a dogbone adapter is available to allow this. What will run without blowing the house fuse? Not the AC I am sure but can I run the fridge,lights and water heater? Trying to find a way to be able to test out the new HTT with existing wiring in the garage until I can get a 30 amp circuit installed...

    You should be able to test the AC on a 20 amp outlet.

    I run my AC in the PUP using the adapter to the house (no 30 amp outlet for my house). I just make sure that no other items are using that breaker and all works well.

    Sir, you are correct, everyting will run to include the A/C, but for how long? The A/C should pull around 15 amps max.

    thanks for all the replies. The AC unit is a small 5000BTU through wall unit on the Starcraft AR-ONE and there is a small microwave also. I guess I will wait until I get it home and then buy an adapter to try it out.

    you should be able to test everything out on a 20 amp circuit. Just turn one thing on at a time to test then turn off and go to the next

    I ran my AC with camper hooked up on a 20 amp breaker all day with triple digit temps and had no problems.

    The owners manual that came with the Darby through wall AC unit says it can run in any household outlet 10 amps or higher. I've been running it nonstop for a day now with no issues.
