gen set with 50 amp outlet

Hi All
I just purchased a generator with a 50 amp outlet. Can I plug my 5th wheel 50 amp plug into this safely. If not what do I have to do to it so I can

Thanks ......Cheers.......Finlay:

Yes you can. Also if your at a campground and they only have 30 amp plug you can use a 50 to 30 amp plug adapter and safely use that. I know you didn't ask the second part but just thought I would throw that in also.

Make sure the generator has the same plug configuration as the RV cord. You might need an adapter.
