refrigerator/power

I have to store my trailer away from home this summer,where I have 30 amp service.
My question is,where I will be storing it,there is 15 amp service,I noticed that on the back
Of the fridge,in the outside cover there is a 15 amp plug for the fridge, can this be unplugged
From the trailer and plugged into another power source.....
2nd is,I don't think it should be done,but can you go 50amp,to 30amp to 15 amp to just run the
Fridge??
Any advice is appreciated

Yes on both questions, using the adapters will give you power to keep the batteries charged.

I'm not clear if you have a 50 or 30 amp trailer. Either way it doesn't matter. Get a 50 (or 30) amp adapter to 120v plug and plug it in. It will run your fridge and charge your batteries just fine.

The trailer is 50 amp,at home I have a 30amp source,just wasn't sure about going clear to 15 amp
My last trailer was only 30 and I always went down to 15amp
Thanks

We use a 50A to 15A “dog bone” all the time at the shop. Your good to go to run the fridge and keep the battery(s) charged. Just remember to check the water level in the batteries.

The big power draws are the air conditioner (usually two for 50A) and the microwave. As long as you don't use those "in storage," you can run 15A-20A just fine. The battery charger, fridge, and lights don't draw much. And if you do happen to turn on something with a heavy draw, you'll just pop the house breaker and can just reset it.
