Joe, I have a few questions.
Is your water heater element 200 VAC? or is the reason you are not using it is (what I think) it throws you over 30 amps total usage and trips the 30 amp breaker on the pedestal or overloads your generator.
Do all your circuits work with the cord you bought?
I would love to see how they wired it. I wonder if they tied the two (camper side) hots of a 50 amp service to the single hot of a 30 amp service.
