Precisely the adapter I have on my list to buy.
I want to plug into the site power pole and plug my circuit tester into the 15 amp side to check polarity, ground etc.

Don't know if you "need" it, but it comes in handy when you want power for lights and such and you're parked at home where you don't normally have a 30 amp plug.

The 20 amp power wouldn't be enough to run things like the A.C., but it would allow the batteries to charge as well.

For that purpose, you need a 15 male to 30 female.
The one shown by OP is 30 male to 15 female.

Adapter kit

Once in a while you'll be in a campground where the 30 amp does not work but the 20 amp will. It will get you by for the night. The 30 to 50 also comes in handy when the 30 is worn out and will not snap in tight. So two adapters for universal dependability. Be Prepared is the motto of the Boy Scouts.

Never thought of that...
It came with the 50, not sure they would have included for stated purpose.

To do that you need male 20 with female 30. That's how my 50 is plugged in now. What they gave me was reversed. By the way AC runs fine. Pulling 15 amps.

I get that, but they have to have a 30 amp female side to accept my power cord....

Doh! That's what I get for quick posting without really looking at the picture.
