I will explain my confusion
a 15/20 amp (House wall outlet) is 120 volt
A 30 amp RV outlet is 120 volt
A 50 amp RV outlet is 240 volt
NOTE: if your 30 amp outlet is mis-wired... (240 volt) be glad you have not let the magic smoke out of your electronics.
If yours is a 50 amp rig.. It may be your dogbone is broken
50 amp service used 3 of the 4 wires (Safety ground needs to be there but is never (hopefully) actually used)
30 amp service just has 2 wires
The 30-50 adapter thus hooks two wires together,, OR at least it is supposed to.
It may be that it's not working but your 15-50 is, or that in moving it from one to the other the other wire connects.
But this applies ONLY if yours (like mine) is a 50 amp rig.
