How about a 50 amp adaptor that splits the feed into two 30 amp outlets. That way each coach can use up to 30 amps which is plenty and no way to overload.

I have a 50 amp post at my house that I plug my RV into ... My neighbor is allowing a mutual friend to "store" hid RV there for about 2 months, or until his driveway expansion is completed.

I do not need 50 amp, if using it here, I only run 1 AC and my residential fridge .. nothing else..


If he's truly only storing the RV and it's only for two months then a 14g extension cord will be fine. No the AC will not work, but should it? I tend to go above and beyond for people. But do you really want to spend the time and money of a double 50 amp adapter for a friend of a neighbor so he can run the AC once, maybe twice in the next two months?

Tell the friend of a friend that he is welcome to plug into a 15 amp outlet on your friend's house, which means no AC or microwave. If HE wants to bring a splitter of some kind to split the 50 amp power, let HIM provide it. Be sure he is aware that he can't unplug your RV from the 50 amp outlet for longer than it takes to plug in said adapter.

As long as both RVs are 30 amp then yes.

If you use an adapter to then connect a 50 amp RV the dogbone adapter becomes a fuse.
