I do the same thing at home. As long as I don't run anything that draws a lot of amperage I'm good to go. Gotta have the fridge cold before the trip.

I got tired of hauling out my 50a cord to plug into the 15a extension cord from the house. So, I bought one of these -- love it!

50 amp to 15 amp/120v

This post solves one of only two things hubby didn't like about our new Crusader. Will definitely be getting the 30 amp cord!

You're right I may look into that. Thanks! First I'll see if I can find it cheaper.

We ordered Voltec 30 amp to 50 amp locking 25 foot cord from Amazon which should be perfect. Hope that is exactly what we need. It will be here Tuesday. 30 amp plug male and locking 50 amp plug female.

Our cord came today and works perfectly with no additional connections needed. It weighs 31/2 pounds and was $81 through Amazon. Happy campers! Know 30 amps won't run air, microwave and water heater at same time, but am used to that as last one was 30. Will always have 50 amp one with us when needed for long stays. Have ordered furniture slides for lounge chairs at back that have to be moved and turned to pull in slides and will report on that when they come tomorrow. Love Amazon Prime!

Just got mine (adapter) today from Amazon too. Already had the 25' cord. That little combo is working just fine. Man I'll tell ya, it's like night and day with regards to ease of hookup instead of pulling out the 50A Anaconda cord. Like you, I'll keep it handy should the need arise. Knowing what I know now, I would have done it like you with one cord spending the extra $5. As it stands my total for adapter and cord is $76. Oh well, you live and learn.
