Correct, as stated a 50 amp 120/240 volt split phase service consists of two poles/legs, each at 50 amps or 100 amps (12000 watts) total.

A 30 amp 120 volt single phase service consists of one pole/leg, at 30 amps (3600 watts) total.

This link may help explain it better, and also the use of the adapter you have that will share the 30 amps across both legs to your RV

You can run everything, just not at the same time.

Yeah running two a/c units on a 30 amp circuit isn't real wise and its obvious.

I believe that adapter only works if the 15amp outlets are on a different circuit than the 30amp. My understanding is most camp sites will trip once that adapter is attached.....(I am not an electrician or an expert)...

Id bet the 20 amp is tied to the 30 in some cases, which renders that adapter useless.
