Likelihood of finding two out of phase 120V circuits

    Still working my plans for a trip from CA to Alaska. As one get's further north, power sources become difficult to located. Some RV parks have 50A 220V service, but in some regions only 30A 120 exists. It's been mentioned that if you can find two circuits that are opposite legs, they can be combined to create a 240V circuit with the help of a Quick 220 device. I am expecting that a park with only 30A service probably doesn't have 240 volts on site. Then of course you have to avoid circuits with GFI, which I understand that most do.

    Since I'll going though geographies with limited power (Yukon, Alaska, BC), what do you think? Is it worthwhile to bring a Quick220 device?
