You can run the heat pump on a 20 amp circuit just fine as long as you don't try to run anything else in the RV except a few lights. And, make sure nothing else in the house, garage etc is on that 20 amp,circuit.
Just get a good quality dog bone type adapter that will make the transition from your 30 amp power cord to the 20 amp outlet. And, of course, make sure it's really a 20 amp outlet, not a 15.
