30amp to 15amp

Moving my 29í ACE from faculty with 30amp to one that only has a 110v outlet. I know I canít run too many things but wondering if I could run just the AC or fridge...not at the same time of course. Will
Batteries stay charged?

30 Amp is 110 VAC
15 Amp is also 110 VAC but may not be able to handle the AC all by itself. Fridge, converter and other minor loads should be fine.

Air Conditioning, Microwave and Electric element on water heater need to stay OFF.

Batteries stay charged?
110v outlet at what amperage? (15A, 20A)
Shared circuit with other RV's - or dedicated to your spot?
Keeping batteries charged should be no issue - for most part will just be maintaining 'float' charge.
Fridge should also be doable.
AC would depend on answers to my questions...

20A dedicated should be fine (managing what else is on...)
15A dedicated may depend...
Shared circuit I would say not likely.

If you keep your power requirements in mind: you'll be fine!
I plug into a 15 amp outlet for days at a time, and I've never had a problem.
However:
I don't need to run the refrigerator or air conditioning. I use it only for lighting and battery charging.
You can probably get away with using a "puck" to tie into the different-sized plug. Under light loads: it shouldn't heat up at all...
I sort of switch between the puck, and an actual 30 amp to 20 amp dogbone...

Running the fridge should be fine but you will have to be careful with the AC. You might be okay as long as you don’t run anything else use a good quality cord and keep the cord as short as possible.
