If your wanting to be able to plug your rv's 30A into a 15/20A house connection, then yes. Any rv supply store will have a dogbone connection that has 30A female connection on (1) end for plugging the rv into and a 15/20A connection on the other to plug an extension cord to the 15/20A and run to the house connection. Keep in mind that this is only used to charge the rv batteries, run a few lights or chill down the fridge 24hrs before leaving. No ac, micro/convection, etc.

Sure, there are all kinds of adapters on the market and they can even be found at about any WalMart.

However, it would be good for you to expand on what you're trying to do so we don't give you bad advice.

My purpose for this setup was to have a 15/20A(110) at our camp hookup & not have to run a separate line to power an infrared heater which when plugged in can not be used with any other appliance as it will blow the breaker.The heater will sometimes blow the breaker on its own.

If the hookup has another 30 amp plugin they have such adapters if you
are thinking of a Y connection that provides both 30 and 20 amp connections
from a single 30 amp plug you will be limited to a total of 30 amps.
