Chet, google rv electrical and you will find a couple articles that may help you decide. You will see that if you have a 50amp service on your rv, running it off of a 30 amp service can be done but you need to be careful not to overload the service. the gauge of cord you have is very important as related to voltage drop. I've got a couple of plug-in voltage meters that I leave plugged in so I can check voltage at a glance. You can burn up high dollar stuff quick with lo-voltage. One of the articles shows a good home made tester for checking plugs before hooking up. The little three or four dollar ground and polarity checker can save you from a schocking experince.

Hope this helps,
