50 amp service with twin leg monitors

One thing that I did to keep an eye on how much current each 120 volt AC leg was handling.
It shows all the info you could ever want.

I also find it quite handy to know with reasonable accuracy what the voltage & current flow is on each leg, but then, I'm an electrician by trade. I've trained my wife to know what she can plug in and when, when we are on a 30A feed. I made up a panel as shown with two meters from Drok via amazon. Comparing to the data my Hughes Power Watchdog gives me, these inexpensive Drok units are reasonably close. This is in our 2006 Carriage Carri-lite. By the way, for a truck I am now using a 2016 Ram 3500 HD diesel. It works very well.

The Southwire surge guard with wifi capability has this feature built in. You just need to buy the external monitor for inside your RV. IT monitors both 50amp legs separately and simultaneously.

Yes, I have a surge protector out on the pedestal as well as my own fabricated monitor.
Thanks

Be sure to secure it as they like to walk away.

I guess I could, but where I am the lots are all privately owned, and our lot neighbors are already well equipped in that regard…
Where are you staying these days Cummins 12V98 ?
