I am a new PP2+ owner, and want to power my Fender Blues Junior (180W consumption) from the courtesy outlet.
Though I am under the limit of 200W max specified for the courtesy outlet, I am curious what exactly limits the wattage on that outlet to 200, especially as it is wired directly in parallel with the main AC input for the PP2+? Why not 300 or 500 Watts? The outlet looks as solid as the power strip I use for bigger amps, like a Vox AC30.
So: what build aspect of the courtesy outlet limits the wattage? Is it the diameter of the interconnecting wiring? Some other issue? Legal liability?

It's some of all the above
The limit was somewhat made up, somewhat calculated, somewhat determined to cover our rears.
It will be perfectly safe powering the amp you describe via the Courtesy Outlet.
