50 amp converters would be great but, not every campground (especially older ones) have upgraded to 50 amp in their pedestals yet (if they even plan to). So, we're still stuck with 30 amp "old" breakers that have been "used and abused, turned off & on" for years! I have run into this several times and like you, popped a breaker, only difference was, it was their breaker in the pedestal.

I am not sure what you mean about 50 amp converters would be great but not all cg's have 50 amp service ?

A larger 50 amp power center in the TT. And I've been in cg's where there is only 30 amp service at the pedistal.

Your converter size has nothing to do with incoming amp from cg power.
your converter size/amps is output amps not input.

I realize that. All I was trying to do regarding post #10, is say that even if you had 50 amp in the TT but, only 30 amp at the cg's pedistal, you're at the mercy of the cg's 30 amp breaker!
