What will be lost when shifting from 50 a to 30 a service depends on your EMS's shed table. My EMS will shed water heater, rear A/C, washer/dryer and finally front A/C.
If you run one A/C and the WD while gone there should not be a need for the EMS to shed any additional loads.
Before leaving, turn on both A/Cs, and the WD. Hang around for full wash and dry cycle as you want to make sure to evaluate the EMS shedding during peak loads, i.e. A/C compressor start up, washer hitting spin cycle, dryer heating element.
Owners manuals should list current draw for your A/Cs and W/D. Add them up to give you an idea.
I have run the front A/C, TV, pedestal fan, W/D and iron on 30 amp with out issue.
