Do you believe that this device will provide up to 60 amps for your RV to use

I think you missed something in your post.

Also 60 amps is not a normal amperage for an RV.

If its a double 30 amp to single 50 Y adaptor, then not really. That will give you 30 amps at 120/240 volts. So 30 amps per leg. A potential of 60 amps but never called that.

Remember, your 50 amp RV is 50 amps at 120/240 volts, so it can potentially supply 50 amps per leg.

We just had to use one of these. It gave us 30 amps per leg, or a total of 60 amps.

Which part was confusing? We would like to help.

RV 30 amp =3600 watts. 30 amps x 120v = 3600 watts.

50 amp = 12,000 watts. L1 - 50 amps x 120v = 6000 watts. L2 - 50 amps x 12v = 6000 watts. 6000 watts + 6000 watts = 12,000 total watts.

The RV adapter you showed in your link would be L1 - 30 amps x 120v = 3600 watts. L2 - 30 amps x 120v = 3600 watts. 3600 watts + 3600 watts = 7200 total watts.

Adapter for 60 amps feed to RV

Yes it can provide a total of 60 amps (30 amps x2 legs)

A normal 50amp circuit provides a total of 100 amps ( 50 amps x 2 legs)
With a 240vac source.

My only concern with this device would be possible load of 60 amps on the neutral wire if you plug into 2 30amp plugs with the same phase 120v (measure 0v across the 2 source legs)

As long as each 30a circuit is opposite phase (measure 240v across the 2 source legs) the load on neutral will be fine.

I see one problem. Where do you find a campground that has 2-30 amp receptacles?
If you are setting up something at home by connecting 2-30 amp receptacles in parallel, you are going to kick the 30 amp breaker.

The cord is rated for 50 amps, it can handle 60 amps on occasion. You would have a hard time drawing just 30 amps on each leg.
