You are fine.
Think of it this way. If your 30 amp service "surged" to 50 amps, your rig can handle that.
The surge protector, depending on model and capabilities can do a lot of other stuff that would far exceed your 50 amp capabilities. I have the Progressive Industries hard wired 50 amp protector with remote read out. It keeps me informed on voltage, current and cycles. It protects me from too much juice, too little juice, too fast juice, too slow juice, direct grounds and improperly wired power posts.
