Are you asking on how each RV should be wired up for a 50 amp service? Your question said we are going to live in 3 50 amp 5th wheels, each should have it's own 50 amp supply but you can get away using a 30 amp service but might be limited on how much you can run on the AC appliances. Click HERE and HERE and it will show you the proper wiring for a 50 amp and 30 amp supply.... Very important you follow the guidelines on wiring it up.....

Let me know if you have more questions or concerns. IF you are satisfied with my efforts please feel free to select a STAR rating on the page.

We have to tell the electrician what to install on the pole. I have no idea if the page you supplied me is what he needs to know or not.
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 2 months ago

YES it is.... It is VERY important that he does not hook up 220 volts direct, when you wire a 50 amp service it is 2 110 hot legs to equal 220 NOT 220 direct, print that out and show the electrician.......
