RV Park Power Wireing

Can anyone tell me if the power pole in an RV Park that has the L1 and Neutral reversed is a problem for a 50 amp service?

It's even more of a problem for 50 amp service than for 30 amp service. If L1 and neutral is swapped on a 50 amp service then you now have 240 volts between neutral and L2 which would burn up anything on the L2 side, like a second A/C.

Just for the "heck of it", go to the Progressive Industries RV site. I've been saved several times from voltage/polarity problems - neighbors lost their TV an microwave, another lost his refrigerator electronics. By the way if the pole is missing ground and you have an older TT sometimes neutral and ground were connected. Watched a neighbor jump when he touched the jack - yup there was voltage (old park).
