+1 to both of these.
My trailer came with "2nd AC Prep", and I certainly wish I had added an AC unit. OTOH, I can see how it might not be a benefit in some regions. Not everyone camps ON THE SUN for 4 months out of the year like we do! LOL!!
If you have 2nd AC Prep, and thus have 50A service, there is really no harm in adapting down to 30A. We do it frequently and have never had a problem running everything we need at the same time (though we don't have a fireplace, but if we did, the AC would NOT be running at the same time as the heater in the fireplace).
One advantage is that many rigs historically have been equipped with 30A service, and so the 30A service in many place is ... "well worn". If your trailer is 50A equipped, you can use the ... "less abused" 50A outlet. In my experience, this has made a difference. Sometimes the 30A service looks terrible and the socket is loose, while the 50A socket practically still has dielectric grease on it from when it was manufactured!
Over time, as more rigs come 50A equipped, this will become less of an advantage, but I'll take it while I can.
