‘what are they thinking?’
I would not like to see that would you. Most rv parks offer at least 30 amp service by default. If you’re parked in front of your house or someone you know, consider using their appliances rather than running yours whenever possible to conserve energy and prevent overloading the electrical system you’re hooked up to for the stay. This will distribute the start up load.

The more i read the comments the more i am happy that in most of canada, and particularly in the province of quebec, all electrical work, beyond changing a light fixture, by law must be done by a licensed electrician. Plus to put it bluntly i would not want to buy or live in a house where some cowboy has done his own wiring and an inspector paid by the job, not the hour has given it his approval just so he can make quick money.

Good job! very thorough. Had to cut the seal on the meter so i could hook the main panel directly to the meter.

We keep having power outages in nearly every storm in southwest pa. You are responsible for any code violations, permits or awesome good stuff that comes from doing a project like this. Ok, this is “below”.
Step 1: never do this
After much consulting and over sight from a licensed 25 year master electrician i believe these instructions to be correct and accurate for my jurisdiction. As phil said, this is the discussion.
