Adapter for plugging 50AMP into covered storage 110 type outlet

My trailer storage place has 110 type outlets that you can plug into to charge your batteries and do some other not-too-high voltage stuff.

My trailer has a big 50 amp chord with the 4 prongs.

My old 30 amp trailer just needed an adapter for me to plug in an extension chord to the 110 type outlet to charge my batteries.

Is there an adapter to facilitate such a connection for my 50 amp chord?

And is it ok to do this just like I did on the 30 amp system?

Thank you!!!

Yes it's ok and they make a 50 to 20 adapter.

is the one I would use if you can keep it from being stolen. Less chance of the big 50a plug pulling it out of the 15a outlet.

I went with one like this to plug up at home.
RV Camper Power Adapter Cords 15amp Male Plug to 50amp Female Adapter RV Extension Cords 12-inch(15M50T) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N54YLKW..._WNKLzbPKDZ7NX
It's a whole lot easier to drag the extension cord around than the 50 amp cord.

I would go with the small adapter and use a medium duty extension cord (short as possible). Leave my RV cord in it's place (assuming an attached cord) and have the extension cord plugged into the outlet. Much less chance of being knocked out or an expensive adapter stolen. All your powering is to charge the batteries and perhaps a few parasitic draws... But, before I left it plugged in all the time, I would put a shut off on the batter, and plug it in every couple of months. With your battery disconnected you will have very little loss in a few months. I have done this for year's with no issue. Good Luck.
