30amp/15amp pigtail adapter will this work?

I have a 50amp plug on my fifth wheel. My state parks boxes all have a 30amp and 15amp plug in. Camper World has an adapter that will convert the 50amp plug to a 30amp and a 15amp plug in the same pigtail so both can be plugged into the box for more amps. Has anyone tried this? Sounds good but does it work and does that mean I will get 45 amps? Sounds too good to be true.

Most 20 amp outlets are GFIC protected so this adapter won't work on those outlets. But yes you will only gain a small bit more amperage compared to the 100 amps you get with the 50 amp service.
