No Not Always. I've tried it out.

It could be because the 30 amp plug gets more use and is more wore out but, I know of one park in particular that I always have to use the 50 amp plug to get the voltage high enough to make me feel more comfortable.


There can be exceptions, but most are wired to the same feed lines and the only difference you will see is more loss in the small cord to your trailer under load. A worn receptacle can cause resistance and that will show up as heat at the plug.
