I'm looking for either positive or negative information on specific brands.
My sincere, sincere, sincere apologies for the wording in my original post. When I looked at it, it made perfect sense to me. I guess I'm a little different.
Let's kinda start over.
Like I said in the origanal post "I am looking for any recommendations for a 30/30amp male to 50amp female adapter." before we go any farther this is exactly what I am looking for this is for 2 110v 30amp pedestals that are back to back going to a 50amp/50amp 110v female plug. I know I will only be able to get 30amps out of each side. The picture above is worth a thousand words.
This has nothing to do with welders or dryers or 220v plugs.
My friend many years ago had an electrician and a plumber put in the ability to hook up as many as six RV's. There are 6 pedestals 2 each back to back and one water hookup and one sewer hookup. Is this the right way, no but it woks fine and it's free. Usually the most there are 1, 2 maybe 3 RV's so it in reality works out.
Last year it was wonderful with the exception of late afternoons. The eastern plains of Colorado gets hot in the afternoon. So every afternoon I'd go shut off the 30amp breaker (I had a 30 to 50amp adapter) off and fire up the generator so I could run multiple a/c's. After sunset I'd turn off the generator and go down and flip the breaker back on knowing it would be what we call the "or switch". By that I knew I could run 1 a/c or the microwave or a hair dryer or a coffee pot or, or, or and on and on. Certainly not the best solution but it worked.
My friend offered to run a new 50amp plug to the parking area but I said that's to costly. His panel was pretty well full so he would need a new one, plus running a new line to the parking area and a new pedestal was in my opinion to much.
The adapter above is exactly what I am looking for. I used something like this in Raton NM at an older park last year and it met our needs.
Since my friend has pedestals that are back to back I can plug each side into the 2 110v 30amp plug pedestals and have 110V 30/30amp female plug, that I can plug my RV in would solve my afternoon dilemma by being able to run 2 a/c's at the same time.
I am looking for either positive or negative recommendations on any specific brands.
