50A-to-30A dogbone = 50 amp breaker on a 30 amp service

Has anyone given any thought to the fact that using a 50-to-30 plug convertor means your 30A trailer electrical system is now protected by a 50A breaker? Should I? I'd think that a device with an inline 30A breaker would be commercially available but maybe it's a non-problem?

The MAIN Circuit Breaker (30A) will protect everything in the RV, but not the power cord.

Thanks. I'll skip any thought of making one up.
