50 amp service on 30 amp TT

Hi all thanks for the tips and tricks.

I'm wondering about using 50 amp service for my 30 amp rig. It seems whenever I use the 30 amp hook up I more than often trip the 30 amp breaker outside. At one campsite all they had was a 50 amp lot, so I always keep an adapter for such occasions.

Well, never trip a breaker the whole 2 days we were there.

At a new site today. Plugged into the 30 amp service. Tripped the outside breaker when using A/C and microwave within 30 sec. Plugged in my 50 amp adapter. No issues.

TT is a 05 Hornet with no electrical issues since we owned it 2012?

Could this cause an issue using the 50amp service on my rig. Really tired of going outside to flip the breaker.

Thx, in advanced.

There is no problem using a 50amp adapter on your 30 amp trailer. in fact a lot of people prefer to do just that for several reasons to include the 50 amp receptacle is used less and less likely to be worn out and trip under a load.

The 50 amp outlet is 220V, with 50 amp service per leg.

There is no problem using it, the load center in your trailer should have a 30 amp main breaker to protect your trailer and limit the inbound current.

Thank you everyone. I'll be using the 50amp service for now on! I do use a Progressive Industries surge protector also.
