I'm thinking about putting in an electrical hookup for my current enclosed
car trailer (and potentially a future RV). While I'm running wire, I
figure I should run an ethernet line and cable line as well. Total
distance from the garage (closest part of the house) is probably 50 to 100
A few questions...
First, what're the requirement for running power lines, ethernet, and
cable underground? Required to be in a conduit? How deep? Can they all
be in one conduit without violating code or causing interference?
Second, what requirements are there for the power pole? Just a 4x4 stick
of pressure treated ok?
I think I'd like a 50A 220vac outlet out there, but also need a 30A 110vac
and perhaps a regular 20A 110vac outlet. Can I just run both 110vac
phases, neutral, and safety ground from a 50A breaker in the box to the
pole and split everything off there, using one phase for the 30A outlet
and the other for the 20A outlet? Does a small outdoor subpanel exist for
this kinda thing? Will running a 30A 110vac outlet off one side of a 50A
220vac feed cause any problems?
I've done a good bit of house wiring, but haven't needed to run electric
outside before. Appreciate the help!
Oh! And another trailer electric question... Anyone know where I can buy
a 30A 110vac socket so that I can make a 15A 110vac plug to 30A 110vac
outlet adapter? The all in one deal that Lowes (and others) sell doesn't
fit into the recessed outlet on my crap generator...
