If everything is wired correctly on the pole and in your MH, No damage will occur.

IMPORTANT - Circuit breakers are there to protect the distribution system, NOT The load. If you plug a crappy small cord that has a short in it into the 50 amp outlet, The cord will probably melt down before that 50 amp breaker pops.

Inspect your equipment for damage.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

We all answered the question you posted sharing what we use in our RV's assuming you would understand that we would not damage our trailers using these items. Buy a dogbone adapter as posted above and get a Progressive Industries RV Surge and Electrical Protection industry lea. This is all you will need to protect your electical system.
Shop around for a better deal.

I agree with Cruchmnan. Might check with Tweetys online. I bought my PI from them.

The 30 amp breaker in the trailer should provide downstream protection
