With both air conditioners and nothing else on in the trailer except the converter the current draw is about 32 amps at 120 volts. I would expect the current draw to increase if the line voltage drops.

We camp in New England at a lot of campgrounds that have been around for a long time. We stayed at one a couple of weeks ago in Vermont that was about 10 years old, and they only had 50 amps at some of the sites.

When we are in a 30a CG, we just alternate the ac's. Only one can be run at a time.

This pigtail will NOT work in all parks. Only where the 30a and the 15a feed are on different phases. If you have one and it works, go for it. If it does not, you are limited to 1 ac due to OHMs law.

HINT: It will not work in most parks.

I don't know about damage but if I am in a 30amp site with the A/C, water heater, and the wife starts the Microwave I can plan a trip to the pedestal to reset the breaker. No way will 30amps run both A/C's

It won't even run 1 ac, the microwave and the water heater. Dang OHM's law again.
