Look in your panel inside the coach. The 50 amp double pole is what is used in the motorhome's electrical panel. Did the math! They are 2 - 50 amp single circuits fed by a #8-3 wire.
One side of the double pole breaker handles - One AC unit, the microwave and the GFIC Receptacles.
The other side handles the second AC unit, the electric circuit to the water heater and the remaining receptacles.
So if you use your 30 amp breakers you'll spend some time resetting them when you want to use the water heater on electric and the AC is running or the microwave with an AC unit running. Add a coffee maker and guess what, your 30 amp breaker isn't going to handle it.
It all depends on what you want to run. My feed from the panel in my shed is less than 10 feet. The cost for setting it up for 50 amps was less than $25 vs. setting it up for 30 amps and using an adapter for the cord. No brainer in my case. If you have a long run from your panel and don't ever plan to need everything to run than sure running #10 for a 30 amp set-up makes sense.
The original post asked what works for you. So I posted what I have for my set-up at home. I'm not sure where Freds342's comment of Do the Math! is necessary? I'm posting what I believe to be helpful information if Aandchart wanted to have full use of everything electrical in the coach.
