A 50 amp. power circut is via a cord/receptical that is
powered by two 120vt hot leads and a netural. For this type of wiring, you would need to run from your main electrical panel to the new outlet...not just try to add on to an existing branch circut, due to loads involved. If your not very well grounded in such installations, get it done by electrician.
50 amps allows use of A/C, heaters, etc. Do you need this capability? I park my BB at my house and only need 15amp service as what I need is only for charging batteries, running other minor circuits. For this type of circuit installation, if your handy, it is easy to do and potentially can be added to existing circuit.
