50 to 15 amp

I would like to know if there is a safe way to step down the 50 amp connection on my Rockwood ultralight to 110v connection. I would like to run the fridge at the house for a day or so before camping and don't have a 50 or 30 amp connection to plug into.
Anybody done this?

My refer is plugged into a 110v outlet behind the outside panel that the drain exits. I would say you could take off the panel and plug the refer into an extension cord.
About a 5 minute job.

Yeah, that's what I am doing now. Just wondered what was out there to provide power to fridge and the converter to keep battery up, use lights, etc. I know I can't run everything but wondered what options were there.

I have this. even better than the other one posted as I now don't have to drag the 50A cord out at all. Install adapter, plug in 15A cord. 50A cord stays stowed in the trailer.

Kind of salty, but not having to deal with the 50A cord at home is worth it.

This is what I do.

Nice heavy duty cord from Lowes with an adapter from Walmart.

Just pull the plug out of it's hole and plug the smaller cord to the trailer and into the garage.

It has not cost a fortune to have an electrician put in a 30 (and now will have to be changed to 50) power outlet on side of garage, on a dedicated circuit, with a weatherproof box. Solves all future problems when parked in the driveway at home.

I have 30 amp at side of house but I drop my tt from 50 to 30 to 110 so it stays plugged in all the time. Can have 30 to run air if need be. Later RJD
