I added a second 120v line on my boat, not much different than an RV. sells the parts. Blue Sea Systems makes an add on breaker panel which you can put on a surface mount box. put a 15 or 20 amp breaker in for the new circuit. Nothing hard or expensive but will give you an extra margin of safety. You don't want to depend on the breaker in the hook up pedestal, no telling if it is wired or sized right.

Agree with Cool Canuck. While your unit is 30 amp you can purchase a 50 amp to two 30 amp or one 30 and one 20 amp Y adapter from Camco, this way you are not using the 20 amp receptacle on the power post which many times is tied to the 30 amp breaker and is a GFIC. Just make sure you install a proper sized breaker in a small breaker box located in the storage area. Worst part is you'll need to use 50 amps At the campground.

This is also done to supply a separate receptacle for a heater in winter much better power supply this way.

Of course this is providing the 50 amp circuit on the post is wired correctly and not a cheater 50 amp circuit.
