50A Coach to 30A Electrical Service

I have searched this forum to try to find the info I need. Being new to RV'ing, wanted to make sure I get it right. I took my coach to Camping World several days ago for some maintenance. The only spots they had available were 30 amp service. My coach has a 50 amp connector, and I did not have an adapter. I have since bought this adapter:

Amazon.com: Camco 55185 PowerGrip 30M/50F AMP 18" Dogbone Electrical Adapter with Handles 3750W/125V: Automotive

When I first purchased the coach, I purchased this power protection system:

EMS-PT50C


My question is whether it is OK to use this Progressive Power Protection when my coach is connected to the lower 30 amp power? I understand that I must limit my use of electrical appliances when on the 30 amp power, but should I use this protector when doing this? The Progressive unit is made for 50 amp service. Thanks.

In your manual it states that your device is designed to be reduced down to 120V/15A, and still maintain full protection. So a 30Amp service will be just fine.
