Plugging into shore power with 50 amp cord, no 115vac in MH. Using same cord, and using 30 amp adapter, I have 115vac in MH. Using volt/ohm meter, cord test out ok. This has happened in last two RV campgrounds. Suggestions?

I'll assume that you tested both power posts for proper voltage at the 50 amp plug , and that the previous person in the site didn't turn the, 50 amp circuit breakers off, while the 30 amp was still on.

I have a 2018 Holiday Rambler Navigator XE 36U which is basically the same unit as the Pace Arrow 36U. They're twin sisters. Mine has the B6.7L 340 HP. 9000 miles on it so far and am averaging 10.32 mpg towing a 2013 Ford C-Max that weighs around 3500 lbs. I'm rarely in a hurry and run about 60-62 mph. Hope that helps.

I have had the top round pin not making contact inside the parks receptacle. Several times I noticed the receptacle part opened (expanded) not making contact to my plug pin. I also adapted to ty he 30 amp and no problems
The only thought I have is that an ohm meter needs a conductive path 1/1000 of an inch to see continuity...one strand.. 120VAC needs a lot more to power a motorhome. IE, continuity is not proof the AC will flow.... If it shows NO continuity that's evidence.
But, like all things electrical it's a simple process of elimination. Switch the meter to VAC and take the lid off the transfer switch and poke around... then the breaker panel etc etc.
