Isn't there something about shoe and fitting?

if the output on your inverter has only 2 wires, it is only 110 volt- any plug designed for 220 won't give full voltage.
half of your circuits will probably not work because of the 220 input normally required ( a jumper would have to be installed in the panel or at the rv plug). You also don't mention a ground wire. 120 volts with no ground connection can be a real hazard.

How many prongs on the factory plug...3 or 4?
if three i think it would be 120v 50 amps
if four i think 220v 50 amps.

I believe the two terms 'wire nuts' and 'twist locks' are more or less interchangeable. They are just fine for use in something that isn't going to move much, like a park model. Some of us on here are 'weird nuts'.

I was at a BLM CG in Utah and they gave the camp host an interesting arrangement for comfort -- In addition to having constructed a big lean-to to park his rig in shade, they provided a trailer that had a large solar panel on it, a big bank of 12VDC batteries and a generator.

After removing the back of the inverter and seeing only one +Pos and -Neg feeding the 4 outlets on the back of the unit the conclusion seems to be to just plug in two cords too two outlets... wire them togehter for 30amps and feed this to a female RV outlet. Then Im good to go.

Thanx for ya'lls bit in figuring this all out
