50 Amp campsites

If my 27RLS is set up for 30 amp hook ups, do I need anything special to use a 50 amp hook up?

Thank you!!

No just the proper adapter female 30 to male 50. Many people do this when they find that 30 amp recepticle is sloppy loose.

You'll need a 50amp to 30amp adapter such as this:

https://www.amazon.com/Conntek-14315...amp+rv+adapter

I also carry a 15amp to 30amp just in case. You have to watch your loads with this one but in a pinch it's handy to have:

I didn't think I'd need one, didn't buy one, and so I didn't have one the one time when I needed one.

Thankfully, the CG had them and loaned us one.

You can also find the same thing at most WALMARTS back in the camping section, Just make sure the ADAPTER is the long version...

Look for the 50amp connection

We actually look for the 50amp connection even though our rig is a 30amp service. I find the breakers at many sites pop at significantly lower draws and at times the A/C alone can pop the breaker at the box.

Travelling with a dog, this becomes a major concern on hot summer days. If we are our exploring without her, I want to know that the A/C will continue to run and keep her healthy.

I have both the Rv Dogbone Adapter 50-Amp Male 30-Amp Female and the RV Dogbone 30-Amp Female to 15/20Amp Male.

The RV 30A-15A dogbone adapter allows me to plug into the garage 120VAC 20AMP Service receptacle to power up my trailers. If the shore power cable is too short i use a HD Contractor grade (10-3) extension Cord...

Looks like this adapter. This adapter also allows me to connect to my standard 120VAC receptacle on my Honda 2KW generator set...


Having both around are handy to have when needed...

Thank you!!
Most pedestals that offer 50 amp will also have a 30 amp plug in the same box. Many places will charge more for a 50 amp site than a 30 amp site. Only possible downside is when you plug a 30 amp cord into a 50 amp plug there is a slight chance of damage to the cord, as the breaker won't trip until 50 amps is reached. Your RV should not be at risk since you have a main breaker in your onboard electric panel.

Nice to have the options tho. Happy Camping
