Smile RV Electrical Panel

Im running an rv panel 300ft with a 30 amp and 50 amp plugs. The 30 amp will be for an rv and the 50 amp will be for a 40 amp electric car charger. Wondering if #2 aluminum wire would be big enough to carry this also what size breaker to use? And do I need a grounding rod at the rv panel?

#2 aluminum i good for at least 90A. 90A-100A breaker.
Your RV panel is considered a sub panel so you will need four wires. Two hots, neutral and ground.
The neutral and ground must remain separate.
Yes.... you will need a ground rod there connected to the ground wire only.
