Default Shorepower Connections

Hi Everyone,
My 83 FCSB35 only has a 50 amp shorepower cord. If I'm at a campgroung with only 30 or 20 amp service do I reduce the 50 amp cord or do I need the 30 and 20 amp cords?
Thanks
Richard Cole

Richard, most people just use an adapter on their 50 amp cord. You probably won't be able to use the 20 amp receptacle because they're usually ground fault. I just plug the 20 amp into the battery charger and use the 12 volt system. I also plug the battery charger into the 20 amp when I'm on 30 amps to take some of the load off the breaker.
