Yes it is safe to do with a dog bone, as far as your A/C turn the A/C off and turn the fan to on, If the fan will come on then your probably out on overlaod. The compressor has a built in overload, you might have tripped that by going into locked rotor. Sometimes it can take from 2 to 8 hrs to reset itself, then try to start it on the 30 amp or dog bone. If still will not start call a repair person...When you were at home I guess you used a 30 amp plug to a 15 amp 110v adapter. Once you do that it will still bring on your convertor also, that will cause a bad enough drop in voltage that you could have burned some windings in it hence your problem now, a A/C running amps could be at 15 to 17 amps alone without the convertor kicking in also. Hope that helps and keep your fingers crossed....
