I think there is a double 30a male to 50a female adapter for pedastles that have 2-30a outlets. Maybe consider one of those??? Hopefully others will post up regarding this adapter.

I forgot to mention the sewer hose, which is stored in a 5" vinyl fence post sleeve under the trailer. I bought one of the Camco sewer kits from Walmart for just over $20. Includes 2-10' hoses, a transparent 90*, and a "doughnut" to fit the sewer hook up. Ended up picking another up, and gave one of the 10' hoses to a buddy who had a fitting come off one of his. So I have 30' total, luckily haven't needed more that 20' so far, but also gives me a back up in case of a hose issue.

One of the most important thing you should add first is surge and power protection. You can get the in-line plug in SurgeGuard type or have the permanent system installed, but either way your rig should have that protection. During our 3 years of full time travel we experienced two or three faulty electrical hook ups at different CG's, any of which could have damaged components in our rig if we did not have protection hard wired in.

Murphy's Law.... The Sewer Connection, Fresh Water Connection and Electrical Connection will be 18" further than your hoses and cords are long !! I always carry extra !!
