    Can some one help me out here? Is 50 Amp service at a KOA 240 Volt?

    The KOAs I've been to have been 208V. Which is a bummer since it's a slower charge than the 240V at home.

    David, just FYI the 1000 Islands KOA at Ivy Lea charged my Roadster at 238V.

    Thanks all, I am planning an off Interstate drive from central Washington State to Wilder, ID and will be looking to RV sites as charging points. I had read in an RV post that all voltages were 110 which would mean a very long stop over for electrons. I will contact the RV sites that are at about the right locations and ask if they have 50 Amp >200 Volt service. Thanks again for the input. Jack

    Just be aware that most campgrounds are generally clueless when it comes to voltage. They really only know them by 50 amp vs 30 amp.

    I think that if they have 50amp, it's safe to assume that it's >200v.
