Can you plug 30 amp into 50 amp service?
Regarding this, can I plug my 30 amp RV into a 50 amp plug without damage?
ANSWER: Hi John if you are talking about plugging your 30 Amp RV into a 50 Amp plug at an RV campground, then yes you can safely do it. All you need is a 30 Amp To 50 Amp Adaptor which has a 120 volt 50 Amp male end and a 120 volt 30 Amp female end.
Furthermore, what is the difference between 30 amp and 50 amp service? 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.
Similarly, you may ask, how does a 50 amp to 30 amp 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.
Can I plug my RV into my dryer outlet?
No, you can't. The dryer outlet is a 240 volt, and the 30 amp RV plug is a special 120 Volt outlet.
