Can a 30 Amp RV Plug Into a 50 amp Connection?

by Wrenn

Can a 5th wheel that has a 30 amp system, use 50 amps at an RV park?

ANSWER: Hi Wren thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

You sure can plug your 30 Amp RV into a 50 Amp plug at an RV Park. All you need is a 50 Amp Male to 30 Amp Female Adapter icon.

One thing you need to realize is that even though you are plugged into a 50 Amp connection; your RV is still only receiving 30 Amps of power, so you will still be limited in the number of major appliances you can run at one time.

I hope this helps.

Can you combine two 15 amp plugs into on to get 30 amps to your rig?
by: AndreR

I was wondering if someone could tell me, if you can combine two 15 amp plugs into a 30 amp one to get 30 amps to your rig. I see that it may be possible at certain smaller places to plug in 15 amps into one socket and if you could plug another one into a different socket get 30 amps together. Is this possible (technically possible)
