conceptumutor; I have a 50-15amp adapter for home on a 20 amp breaker, and as long as I keep it plug in to at least a 14-3 cord or larger I can keep the fridge and 1 air conditioner on for a bit enough to load or unload for a trip( as long as the beer fridge doesn't kick on!)

If you have a pedestal with 2-30 amp outlets and 20 amp outlets they most likely have 240 volts going to that pedestal. The 30 amp outlets are still only 120 volts because they are being fed from separate phases. The pedestals that we install with 1-30 amp outlet and 1-20 amp outlet are still 240 volt pedestals with the 30 amp outlet on one phase and the 20 amp outlet on the other phase. These pedestals are rated at 70 amps and get fed from a 200 amp 240 volt power supply. They are feed through design so several pedestals are connected to the same circuit. Its hard to say how many are pedestals are wired together as when the campground was probably built, campers didn't require as much power.

So What will happen if I use this Y on either both 30 amps or a 30 and a 15-20amp combined?

If the pedestal has 2, 30 amp sockets, give it a try. Or even a 30 amp and a 20 amp outlet. If I were you and wanted to be super careful and not blow anything up in case the pedestal has 'weird' wiring I would get a pin out on your 50 amp plug that plugs into the trailer and verify that there is 110 volts on each of the hot legs to neutral.

By the way, if you get 240 volts (around 220 to 240) between the 2 hot legs you indeed have 2 phases of power and a good chance this will al work. Good luck!

Thanks Evereddie! Kind of what I thought but as I said before it can be kina dangerous when I get to thinking, (or that's what DW says!)
