Will this work?

In a few weeks I will going to an event where there is water hookups and I can possibly get 15/20 amp power. My old 5ver had 30 amp and with the 15 to 30 adapter it would give me enough power to watch tv and keep the battery charged which is all I need for this event. My new 5ver has 50 amp can I use adapters to go from 15 to 30 to 50 without any problems? I don't want to take a generator unless I have to.

Yep, you can- it's what I do at home. Home Depot also has one of the cheapest 50 to 15/20 adapters that I've found.

I think I am going to go with this Amazon.com: Conntek 14435 25-Foot RV Power Cord RV 30 Amp Male Plug To 50 Amp 125/250 Volt Locking Female Connector: Patio, Lawn & Garden MY 5ver is wired for two ACs but only has one so I can use this instead of the 50 amp and just use a 15 to 30 adapter when I need to hook to a 15 amp outlet. Cost about the same as the HD adapter which I would have to order too.

I ordered it the other day with my Prime account it came today I liked the weight (or lack of). I keep my 5ver in a 30'x36' Pole Barn and before we poured the concrete I ran 30 amp service to the back of the slab n the middle. I park the 5ver on the left side of it because it is easier to back it in there. I wanted to try it out but it is about 3' too short even running it under the 5ver . Like I posted earlier it will still come in handy just due to the weight vs dragging that monster 50'er around.
