Going to stay with friends and need to know if this is doable.
So... as others have said, you'll be good up to the 15 amp (or maybe 20 amp) limit of the 3 prong 15 amp plug. It will maintain the RV but not allow for A/C or other high amp devices.
Your surge protector won't trip if things are wired properly. According to what type of protector you have, it only clamps down on surges, it doesn't shut down when amperage is more than the cords/plugs can handle. If it's an EMS, it also monitors low/high voltages, wiring issues, etc.
Plugging in to a house, don't assume a 3 prong plug looking like your 30 amp RV shore cord. It likely is a 240 dryer or range outlet. Check before plugging into any outlet that isn't a dedicated RV outlet.
