We need help as new 5th wheel owners

We have our new 2016 Cedar Creek stored under covered parking with 10amp/120volt electrical available. We are 50 amp and have a 50 to 30amp adapter but need to know what to get to go from the 30amp to the 10amp/120volt so we do not have to run off batteries when we're at the RV. Help to find what we need please.

Any RV parts room should have them.

Then 10amp is your limit, no matter what adapters you use.

If you don't have a P.I. EMS system, get one. Then you know how many amps you're using.

Never heard of a 10 amp circuit? Are you positive your not plugged into a standard 20A circuit?
Any RV parts house will have 30/20 adapters. Personally I bouht a heavy duty extension cord, a 50A plug to mate to the trailer and made a permanent 20A cord set. My trailer has been plugged in at home this way for 11 years with no problem. You just have to remember, no water heater, or any thing else that can consum more than 20A of power.

10 Amp circuit...maybe just like my storage place advertises. They say I have a 10 Amp circuit, but what I have is a shared 20 Amp circuit with the guy next to me plugged into the line also; sharing a 20 Amp so to speak. At least that is what I have, so perhaps that is how they came up with 10 Amp.

Ive never seen a 10 amp 120 breaker. The smallest I have seen is 15 amps and the most common is 20. Why not take a look at the actual breaker in the electric panel that turns that circuit on and see what its amp reating is? If you don't know what circuit, plug in a radio and turn breakers on adn off til the radio quits.

Both 15 and 20 amp use a standard US household receptacle so you can get another adapter from 30 amp to 20 amp and then you will be connected, with a VERY limited service. I would not run the AC and much else or you will run the risk of overheating the adapter I

Standards are 15amp for household indoor circuits and 20amp for exterior circuits.
