50 amp

My wife & I have a class C Sunseeker. We have reservations this summer but the site has 50 amp & our RV is 30 amp.
I know this is probably a dumb question but how do we make this work?
Thx for any advice

Youw will need a 50 to 30 amp dogbone. One example.

Also many sites that are 50 amp will also have a 30 amp receptacle as well.

In any case its best to carry a 50 to 30 amp dogbone and a 20 a to 30 one as well. You will then be covered in all situations, cheep insurance to make sure you can always connect to whatever is available.

Yep, very easy. You just need this or a similar adapter.

Check with the campground, more times than not a 50amp campsite’s pedestal also has a 30amp receptacle.

I use one all the time that a tramp is there. They tend to be tighter plugs them the 30 amp plugs. Also if its hot and many are using AC, you will get a full 30 amps.
