Here is another great write up about 120/240 and how adaptors are wired.

You are correct, we (I) have been drilled to think of my 30amp TT, even 50amp rigs, as 120v only and not for a second to think of think of it as 240v. So when I saw the 220v label it freaked me out a little.

All is well, I talked to the park attendant and it had already been brought to his attention. He's unsure what he's going to do.

Can't blame you! Friday rained all day but yesterday and today is just beautiful! The park's name is W.P. Franklin North, part of Lake Okeechobee waterway system, and it is managed by the Army Corps. Facility Details - Recreation.gov, W.P. Franklin N (FL) - Recreation.gov

Hmm...so if you use an adapter that allows you to plug your 30AMP TT plug into a 50A outlet post is one leg on the adapter dead so you don't get both 110V lines going into the TT?

You are correct. If you use a 30 amp to 50 amp adapter, you're inly using one leg of the 50 amp receptacle. The other leg isn't hooked up.

that's correct..see the previous post by Acableguy showing a diagram of a 50 to 30 amp dogbone adapter.
