Can you hook 30 amp RV to 50 amp service?
Correspondingly, how does a 30 amp to 50 amp RV adapter work?
With an adapter, you can plug a 50-amp RV cord into a 30-amp power pedestal at a campground. The female end of the adapter will plug into your RV cord, and the male end will plug into the power pedestal.
One may also ask, what is the difference between a 30 amp and 50 amp RV hookup? 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.

You will most likely need to set your RV up to be able to connect to the standard 3-prong household plug you use at home. Since your RV will need at least a 30/50 Amp hookup to power the rig, you'll be limited in what you can run connected to a home's 15/20 Amp electrical outlet.
Can I plug my 30 amp RV into my house?
You can go the expensive way: have an electrician come out and wire a plug for your RV, either 30 amp or 50 amp service. Remove the 30 amp plug from the generator plug, like you would at an RV campground. Then plug it into this adapter. Then you can plug the adapter into your heavy duty outdoor extension cord.
