There are some aftermarket converter devices that you can use if the campground service box for your site has both a 30 amp connection and a 20 amp regular home type plug non ground fault interrupter in the box or two 30 amp plugs and they are properly wired with separate breakers. My experience with these converter boxes are they very seldom work usually due to incompatible wiring in the campground, not a problem with the converter box and usually are not a good long-term solution. If the campground wiring is not totally compatible with the box you risk low voltage problems or will continually be tripping breakers somewhere in the line. The other possibility is to use a “dogbone” type adapter to downsize your 50 amp plug to fit a 30 amp line. This, however, will only give you 30 amps of power to operate your RV. Things you take for granted like running two air conditioners, running the microwave, a hair dryer, a vaccum cleaner or any other high amperage device two at a time will probably result in a tripped breaker.
The 20A outlet usually does not provide enough current to properly start the compressor. A 20A circuit provides as much current as the load draws and will easily provide thousands of amps. Short two wires together from a 20A receptacle and you will be arc welding with thousands of amps in no time. What you say is not correct, and – sorry – but its from a lack of understanding.
And the amp/volt twist-lock outlet just needs a generator twist-lock to RV TT outlet adapter to work with an RV’s amp shore power plug. But the adapter plug you’ve already bought is NOT want you need to hook your amp RV shore power plug into the generator.

Hi, I was hoping I might ask a bit of advice if you have time? My question is, rather than taking the generator all apart, do you think it might be possible that I could get a twist-lock plug for the twist lock socket and combine the wiring at that point into a small fuse box with an RV socket coming out of that. My goal would be that I could easily return the generator to normal function when others barrow it or if I were to sell it. I should mention it is a watt unit.
Thanks, Dan As I sit here, I attempt to frame the question, and look at the data provided.

May 12, · I am looking at investing in a campground and a site has a amp service pole and can be split off to service individual RV spots. Wondering if anyone has experience in splitting off that amp service into 30 amp individual sites.
This includes lots of electrical appliances and devices. Watts, or overall power, is a product of current, or amps, and voltage. If you want to know how many different electrical devices you can have on at one time in your RV or in your home, for that matter , this formula will tell you. As long as you stay under the amount of available wattage, your circuits will run smoothly. The volt system is powered by an RV electrical hookup plug or a generator, and it powers daily use items like kitchen appliances, your TV, and other electrical appliances.
This can be achieved with a single 12 volt battery or several 12 volt batteries wired together in a parallel circuit. However, using two 6 volt batteries wired together in a series circuit to essentially create a 12 volt battery is typically better than using a single 12 volt battery. The trade-off for using two 6 volt batteries is that two batteries take up more space than one. However, that trade-off may be worth it if your camping needs require that extended battery life.
Almost all RVs come with a power cord to plug into the electrical pedestal at a campground campgrounds with available hookups, anyway. They come in two amperages: A 30 amp cord has three prongs, and a 50 amp has four. While many campgrounds do have RV electrical hook ups for both 50 amp and 30 amp cords, some campgrounds have only 30 amp hookups available. Also, you want to use the shortest adapter and extension cords possible to avoid a voltage drop.

One convenient way to get the adapter is to order from WalMart. You can order online and pick up the adapter, usually the same day, at any WalMart store. You simply plug the camper into the “dogbone”, and then plug that into the wall, and you’re all set to go! There is another type of RV plug adapter on the market, which is commonly known as a “hockey puck”. They are sold at the same places, and cost a few dollars less.

Polk Some time ago I wrote an article about basic RV electricity. Just when I thought we thoroughly covered the topic I get another good question about RV electrical systems that I failed to discuss in the previous articles. I received one of these good questions the other day and thought there would be many other RVers who would like to hear the answer.
In one of your previous articles you list the RV converter as drawing 8 amps. I am developing an electric amp chart to hang inside a cabinet and I need to resolve this question as this would make a significant difference. When you plug your RV into an electrical source, or when you use the onboard generator, the converters job is to reduce volts AC down to 12 volt DC to supply power to all of the 12 volt appliances and accessories in the RV. There are two types of amperage draw concerning your RV.
The AC amps we are using and the DC amps we are using. When you plug your RV into an electrical source and use volt appliances like the roof air conditioner, the microwave and a TV you are drawing amps from the available supply at the campground, usually 30 or 50 depending on your RV electrical system and the electrical supply you are plugged into. Are you more confused now than when we started?
It will use a small amount for items like the LP gas leak detector, clocks or maybe an aisle light, but not enough to really affect the amperage you are plugged into.
