Electric question?

Ok so I have a Shamrock hybrid trailer. Here is my set up as far as the electric cord goes. Please tell me if this set up is right or wrong..
Starting at the trailer.. Basic 15 foot 30 amp cord going into the portable surge protector ,, going into another 30 foot 30 amp cord ,, then I have a small 30amp to 15 amp inverter plug going into the outside electric outlet on my shed.
What do you all think?

What do you mean by 'inverter plug'? If you mean 15 to 30 amp adapter plug (dogbone), the connection will be OK, you just won't be able to run any loads higher than the breaker that is feeding the outlet on the shed (probably 15 or 20 amp breaker). ie not enough power available for let's say the AC unit.

Sounds just fine.. Might want to secure the middle connection into your surge protector from moisture. What's your question?

I used to use the same set-up to run the TT lights when working on mods in my yard, I have since installed a 30 amp outlet in my garage. Enjoy and have a great day.
