People also ask, can you hook a 30 amp to 50 amp?
The answer is yes, you can quite safely plug your 30 amp RV into a 50 amp socket, you'll just need to use 30 amp to 50 amp Adaptor. These adapters feature a 120 volt 50 amp male plug and a 120 volt 30 amp female socket.
Beside above, what's the difference between 30 amp and 50 amp? A 30 amp plug has three prongs – a 120 volt hot wire, a neutral wire and a ground wire – and is generally used on RVs with lower load requirements. A 50 amp plug has four prongs – two 120 volt hot wires, a neutral wire and a ground wire – that supply two separate 50 amp, 120 volt feeds.
Secondly, how do I convert a 30 amp to 50 amp adapter?
You can plug a 30-amp RV cord into a 50-amp power receptacle, such as a power pedestal at a campground, by using an adapter. The female end of the adapter will plug into your RV cord, and the male end will plug into the power pedestal. Adapters come in two main styles: dogbone-style and plug-style, as seen below.
How does a 50 to 30 amp adapter work?
When you plug your dog bone adapter into the 50 amp outlet the adapter taps only one of the two 110 volt legs and transfers the power to your power cord as though it was plugged into a 30-amp outlet.
