That would work great if you have 30 amp circuit. You would need a step up transformer to use it. On 50 amp you may be able to run 1 air cinditioner depending on the dryer load

the problem with using a 240V item in your RV is if you ever wind up at a CG where you only have a 30amp available and you use a reducer. The dryer in this case will either not work or short. As you will be feeding both phases with the same phase. And that is a no..no..

I did not say I thought it was a good idea , just that DRV was offering it.

I guess if you are setup up at a permanent site, maybe it is a good idea but for those of us that travel and move around, it is probably not a good idea.

it just means you are limited to 50A sites.

There was a time when 30A was a huge progressive step, when many campgrounds hadn't even got 20A yet. There are still plenty of 20A out there, but the sites are usually 25 ft so it usually isn't anything we come across much.
