What Size/type Wire For RV Plug-in?

I have 4 RV spots I'm developing. 2 spots are almost directly in front of the main power pole and meter, with the farthest spot being 20 feet away. The other 2 spots are a little farther away, the closest being 83 feet and the other side being 110 feet from the main power pole. At each spot there will of course be power poles with a meter and plug-ins for the RV itself. From what I understand, some RV's are 30 amp and some are 50 amp. So I want both types of plugs on the posts, along with a usual 120v outlet.
What type and size of wire needs to run to each spot to power all three plugs?
Can I run one wire that just stops at the first spot and continues to the second, or a separate wire run for each spot?

The answer to this is going to be , you need to get an electrician if you are not qualified to do it. commercial work normally requires a permit and electrician at lease here it does.

Either way is doable, but you need an electrician to size it all out for you.

Re: What Size/type Wire For RV Plug-in?

what you are asking for is fairly simple for a qualified electrician.

wires must be sized properly for load & run.

for liability reasons you will want a pro to insure circuits are run properly,
correctly installed and properly grounded.

i'm going to close this thread as there isn't really any more info we can give you.
