Has anyone ever gotten into a park where they had 50 amp service and your rig is 30 amp?
I think there is an adapter for situations like that isn't there?
Most of the new rigs are coming with 50 amp now, and the parks are changing over to accommodate them, so I was thinking that might be a good thing to have with. I found this on Amazon. Is this what would do the job?

Lloyd, I had one of those when we owned the Cruiser. I never had to use it but wanted to have it with us just in case.

Thanks. I think I will feel better with one in the tool box.

Called a Dog Bone and can pick them up at Camping World of other RV dealers. I have seen them at Wal Mart before cost about $12 to $16 . Used mine several times.

It's in the tool box if I ever need it, along with the 20 amp adapter.

Is there an easy way to go from 50 amp service to 20 amp?Until this year I used the regular 50 amp chord with a 50/30 amp dog leg plugged into that. Then Iplugged a 30/20 adapter extension into the 30 amp adapter and used a 20 amp extension chord from the house. Pretty standard set up, and a lot easier than I can describe it.



We just had the second A/C/Heat Pump installed in the bedroom so, as soon as I get dry enough conditions, (10 days!?!?), I'm going to run a 50 amp service from the house to the driveway, so I won't have to worry about adapters anymore. (I ran the a/c off of my generator if needed at home before this.)



What I'd like to add to everything is a 50/20 amp adapter for places where I want to set up but can't run the generator. (A couple of relative's homes, where we can fit in the driveway for an overnighter for example.) But, the only 50/20 adapter I've found thus far is $100.00!!. Sure, I can use what I have, but on cold mornings, that 50 amp line is all but impossible to loop. Any suggestions?

I am also considering installing a 2nd A/C unit ,( 2008 mk33 w/ 30 amp service). Can you give me some idea of what to expect? IE---price, install cost, extra parts that were not expected, any other tips or observations will be very much appreciated.

thank you
