Default water lines and 220

In the near future i am going to install a washer dryer combo, the 24" wide and 70" tall type, i can run the hot and cold out of the bath room to the closet where the unit will be. but it will under the floor outside about 6'. So looks to me they ran the water and the waste between the floors cause i dont see it outside.....
I would rather have the lines safe and warm, any suggestions??
The waste would have to be tapped into just before the drain valve. not the neat job i would like to have or do. looking for help and more suggestions.

Now the electric so whats the best way to do 220 ?
I think i can get 220 out of my gen with no problem.. but how about when hook to shore?

Thanks

Sam

Do you have a 50 amp connection? If so, you have:
-- 120v hot (50 amp)
-- 120v hot (50 amp)
-- neutral
-- ground

Does your panel have any 240v (220v) breakers or is it all 120v? Do you have extra slots? In either case, (assuming 50 amp service) you have the potential for 240v by installing a breaker that connects to both of your 120 legs.

If you were ever to use a 30 amp adapter you would not have 240v because the adapter connects both sides of your panel to one leg of 120v.

There are a lot of assumptions and maybes in the above... what kind of panel, are 240v breakers even available for your panel, how many amps service, how your generator is wired to your panel, etc. I would talk to an electrician if you're not super confident about it.

Bottom line: 240v is possible if you have a 50 amp service, it is impossible if you have 30 amp service, (assuming standard RV connections)

I don't think any rv's ever have 240v. What do you need to power with 240 volt?

I think I've seen builders run the water lines along the floor/wall junction. Then they use a piece of wood carpeted placed at about a 45 degree angle over it to cover them. I'll try to get a picture of it on mine next time I'm visiting my storage place.

I have 50 amp.
I am going to pull the panel cover and see what the bus bar looks like and put a meter on it and See what i can get.

Thanks for the info and insight.

The dryers i have seen are both 110 and 220. i have to run
The wire no matter what voltage, so 220 will dry much better.

You might want to give Renegade a call and give them your coach floor plan number. They can tell you exactly where the lines run. We have 110v for our washer and dryer and they work well provided we don't overload them too large a load of clothes.

Some of my water supply lines appear to run straight down through the floor. But in fact they run through the bottom board of the cabinet and then make an elbow before going through the floor. I think.

my waterlines are like bob's (and everyone else) hidden along the wall (but inside the coach).

If theyre running water lines outside you have a (VERY) high risk of freezing them.

Also 50a in a coach are 2 legs of 120vac (50a each).
