mp connection and one leg on the 20 amp connection, the EMS display still showed the 30 amp light on. Should the EMS display show the 50 amp light on when the cheater box is hooked up in this manner?

Only if the cheater box is connected to the opposite leg of the 220 line in the shore line panel that you are plugging in to. The EMS displays 50 amps when it reads 220 volts across the 2 hot leads in the shore power cord. If the 20 amp outlet on the power post is wired to the same leg as the 30 amp then there will be no voltage reading between the 2 hot leads and the EMS system will view it as a 30 amp connection.
