I picked up my 2022 Scamp 13 a couple of weeks ago, and during the orientation I was told that the a/c will only operate if plugged into a 30 amp service. I questioned then why is the a/c protected with a 20 amp breaker, and I could not be given an answer. I was looking at the spec sheet for the a/c units and it appears the compressor has a rating of 13 amps and the motor about another 3 or 4...so that would total below 20 amps. So, have any of you run the a/c on 20 amp power (assuming no other electrical devices are being used)? I have a 20 amp outlet on my garage, but it hasn't been warm enough to test if it will run the a/c. I think the worst that could happen is that it would trip the breaker inside my garage.
