I am new to this form and new to RVing. I have a used Jayco popup which we really enjoy. We use it several times during the summer months. We also sometimes just sleep in it in our yard just for the fun of it. I look forward to the discussions.

I am glad to know others enjoy the RV in their back yard. For us it just feels like we are doing something different. We live on 2 acres and plan to install a hookup for other RV friends who want to visit us. Our popup only requires standard outlet, but our friends require 30 and 40 amps. Is this standard stuff or is there something I have to watch out for. I know from using generators that 30. 40 and 50 amp plugs are different. So not sure how to accommodate all possibilities. Our garage has its own 100 amps panel which is hardly used and there is lots of space in the panel.
I am likely wrong about the 40 amp. If I put in a 30 amp, then when someone comes with a 50 amp, will they still be able to pug in? Do they have a converter for that? I hear the newer, larger RVs use 50 amps and some camp sites have hook ups for them.
The cabling for this stuff is quite expensive. It has to go underground. So I am thinking about running one cable that will handle 50 amps so at least I won't have to upgrade later.
