Hi all. Electrical moron here. I have a 50 Amp Surge Protector. Some of the campgrounds I've reserved for our Fall trip can only offer us 30 amp electrical hook-up. Will my 50 amp Surge protector work when I'm connected to 30 amp ?

Yes it will. The 50 amp suppressor only differs from a 30 or 20 amp in that it has two circuits to protect (two 50 amp 120 volts AC circuits). When you use the 30 amp adapter it will simply feed the same single circuit through both suppressor circuits.

A lot of campgrounds w/o 50 amp have two 30 receptacles on the post. We found this device lets you plug your 50amp RV cord into both 30amp receptacles and your RV thinks it is pluged into 50 amps. Really nice when you want to run a bunch of electrical devises at the same time, water heater, ref, AC ect.
