Surge Protection

Hello y'all. Electro Wizard here.
Some of the Campgrounds that we have reserved have only 30 amp service. I'm concerned about Surge Protection. I have a 50 Amp Surge Protector. If I hook my Surge Protector to my power cord then to my 30 Amp Adaptor which I plug into the Campgrounds' Power Supply, am I protected?
Also, I'll be storing my coach around Augusta, Georgia for a couple months, and will be plugging into household 3 prong 120 volt power (any further questioning about amps, volts, joules, watts or watt-ifs will be met with a blank stare; ther's a reason that I call myself the Electro Wizard.) Anyway, I'll be plugging into household type power just to keep my batteries charged to insure my furnace will ignite if needed. Will my 50 amp Surge Protector be effective in this situation?

X3 the only problem is you will only have 15 amps so don't turn on much.
