We go to plenty of parks with only 30 amp service. Don't try to run both ac's at the same time, although some say you can. I have the 15,000 Btu in the main living room and 13,5000 btu in the bedroom and just don't need to run both at the same time. If running coffee pot and microwave on same circuit could blow the breaker. Just watch your use and you will be fine. I like to cook on an electric griddle outside so I just run a separate electrical cord to the extra outlets on the park electrical box. No problems what so ever. Enjoy your trip.!

We have a 25' Marinco 30 to 50 amp adaptor cord that we use most of the time, even when 50 amp service is available. It is SO much easier to handle than the supplied 50 amp cord. The only time we use the 50 amp cord is for extended stays and when it is necessary to run both ACs. You do have to be conscious of your amperage draw especially when running hair dryers, toasters, electric heaters, etc. We have been on 30 amps for the last month while running two heaters (one on low) almost continuously. We are running our water heater on gas and do shut off a heater when nuking and hair drying.

+1 I use the 30amp more than the 50 for the same reason. You will have to manage your power use and after a short time will learn what will run on 30amps, you be running out to reset the breaker while learning.
