30 amp to 20amp receptacle

I have a 20 amp cord and need to plug a 30amp RV recptacle into it.

I can't find an adapter for this.

Does someone know where I can find such an adapter ?

Can you post a picture of what the outlet end of the 20-amp cord looks like?

You can purchase a new camper setup package and it will have one in it along with sewer hose and one roll of toillet paper. Camping World and probably Walmart should have them.

Are you referring to this:

Prime RV Adapter, 15 Amp-30 AMP Adapter With Indicator Light and Handle: Electrical : Walmart.com

or the opposite in this:

Prime RV Adapter, 30 Amp-15 AMP Adapter With Indicator Light and Handle: Electrical : Walmart.com

Your RV section of your local Wal-mart may have them in stock, if this is what you need.

20 amp has one verticle and one horizontal prong along with the ground prong.

15 amp has two verticle prongs along with the ground prong.

A 30 amp to 15 amp adapter does not work. My true 20 amp chord receptacle does not have the 15-20 amp receptacle slots. Hope that makes sense

No

a 30 to 15 adapter does not have the same horizontal receptacle slot as a true 20 amp.
