Yes, I hear you! We had an electrician put a 30 Amp plug in for us at our home.. He was set go install a dryer plug assuming it was standard😳... Thankfully, WE knew better than that and got the proper one from our RV Dealer... He is not the first electrician to think this... I guess they don't install a lot of these for TT, etc.
As for my original question, I guess we will take portable fans with us...

Just a little advice, pull out your voltmeter and check before you plug in.

It's probably way more effort than it's worth, but a competent electrician could install a 30TT outlet in place of the welding outlet. They would also have to go into the house subpanel and replace the welding 240 volt double pole breaker with a 120 volt 30 amp single pole breaker, while also turning one of the hot legs into a neutral.

All the wiring is there for this conversion, but it would REQUIRE a competent electrician who could do this all in about 15 minutes.

As stated, it's probably not worth the time and expense for just a few days stay.....since it would all have to be changed back when you left in order to use the welder.

You probably can still use a 30-15 amp adapter and plug into a regular household outlet at the b-i-l's. You just are now limited to 15 amps total, and probably don't need to use the air-conditioner.
