Most parks are running larger guage so they can handle 50 amp survice.
uhhh, the larger gauge extension isn't going to magically draw a bunch of current. The heater is going to draw what it wants, the larger extension cord will have less of a voltage drop, and the heater will probably pull LESS amps from the park outlet...
ETA, if it was a 50A service drop, the whole plug would be different, too.
