I just use a good quality 100 heavy duty regular extension cord to the coach. Leaving the 50a cord in the power bay with adapter there n the power bay. Lighter to handle, no connection to the weather, etc.

For battery maintenance just use a 12 X 3 cord.

If your mh has removable or plug in cord just get a 12 3 cord 100 ft long and change end for mh to plug in and you have great quick connect.

Personally you should already have 50 Extension cord just in case and a heavy duty 15 amp extension cord also. Along with your 50 to 30 amp and 30 to 15 amp dongles you should be able reach 98 % of all Camp site electrical panels.
Now taking into account all you want to do is charge the batteries and run the fridge these cables will do the trick. The only thing I would do is to wrap the connections between cables in a plastic bag to keep moisture out so that you don't trip the circuit.
