Would I ever need an adapter to go from a 50 amp box to a 30 amp cord? Is there ever an instance where we would have a site with only 50 amp on the post?

We have run into this situation only 2 times and both times the campgrounds had the 50 to 30 amp adaptors for rent. That being said we do own a 50 to 30 amp adaptor.

In addition to the rare instances where there was only a 50 amp connection (no 30 amp) there has also been a few times the 30 amp connector was very worn & the 50 amp in good shape. Seems there are more 30 amp rigs in some parks than 50 amp ones...
