I have to admit this is confusing. Perhaps some guesswork as to what you are really asking is in order.
I think what you are asking is: will using a 50 amp RV service plug to 30 amp RV service dog bone adapter hurt the RV and the answer is, no.
A 50 amp RV service is actually two 110 volt independent circuits each capable of providing up to 50 amps of current if needed. Since you will only be using one of those legs with an adapter and your camper has a 30 amp main service breaker, the camper is incapable of taking more than 30 amps (even though the service is capable of more).
Putting a 40 watt bulb lamp into a 20 amp wall outlet just draws less power than a 100 watt bulb in the same lamp. No damage is done to the bulb in either case as they just draw what they need to light. Putting too many lamps on that outlet will eventually max out the 20 amps available at the breaker and trip it off.
I hope that helps you.
