Hello all. I have been reading your forums here for some time and have finally joined. I am an ice cream shop owner and I am designing a trailer to take my show on the road as well. Just looking to hit the summer festivals and streetfests here in Cincinnati. I am wondering if anyone has any experience with dip wells on a concession trailer? What is the best way to set up? Any insight into this would be of great help.  Also based on my plans I should be putting a 50 amp service in my trailer but was trying to figure out what is usually available at these types of events. I can go with a 30 amp if absolutely necessary but would rather not. Also twist lock or four prong plugs? Your feedback is very much appreciated.
Thanks a ton,

Ice cream not my product, but I will say down here in the badlands of New Mexico most electrical set-ups provided by the promoter consists of 15 amp, 120 volt. Lucky if you get 2 outlets. Good luck in our new venture.
