Running living room ac on 30 amps

I installed a 30 receptacle near my driveway when I owned an RV with 30 amp service (one AC unit). I now own a Thor Daybreak with 2 AC units and 50 service. My question is, can I use a 50/30 amp adaptor to run one AC unit at home, usually when loading and unloading in the summer? And cooling down the fridge?

Thanks, Bruce

You should not have any issues unless u try and run both ACs.

Yes.. have done it quite a bit...
If you don't want to use the A/C or microwave - can run on 15...
30 should allow 1 A/C plus (even microwave with that should be fine).

For our new house I will be installing a 50A plug - but that's for mid-Florida where I think I will need to run both A/C's in the summer when it is the 'guest house'.

You can even turn on the fan on the second unit. Just without the AC. It helps move air in the back while the front unit is the only one pushing AC.
