To have a real 50amp plug in on a genny you will need a 12,000 watt unit. Changing the plug on it will allow you up to 7,500 or 10,000 watts of power before the genny breaker trips and could be enough for your useage.

That 120/240 v plug in is 30 amps @ 240v it'll only be 15 amps @ 120v
Just fyi.
I had to have my gennie rewired @ that plug to be 30 amp 120 only.
You'll barely be about to run one a/c if @ all especially if it's hot and humid.

Hondoflatty, I just posted the diagram in another thread, that reminded me I said I would also post it here when I was on a regular computer. Here it is, so you can see that indeed the 50 amp to 30 amp adapter does have a jumper that shares the 30 amps across the L1 and L2 in the RV.

Sorry for taking so long to post it.
