Appliance Amperage

Most of us have blown a fuse or two while camping. Sometimes, it is a fuse below the refrigerator and sometimes we even blow the campground fuse. Here is a chart of approx amperages of common appliances. Personally, I am always blowing the generator 20 amp fuse when we stop to fix a meal on the road. I have the LP generator, which has a 30 amp circuit for the two roof air conditioners, and only one 20 amp circuit for everything else. So, with a little knowledge on how your D is wired and this chart, you can make a good estimate of what appliances you can run simultaneously.
