If you use the 50A pedestal outlet on a 30 AMP trailer with an adapter are you not actually only having a 25 AMP breaker at the campground pedestal.... The 50Amp is two 110V legs @ 25Amps each correct?? My terminology may not be exactly correct.
On our 2013 the gas light (red indicator) stays on when the gas is on and in use and off when the pilot light is not lit.
Well, that is not correct. If you use a "pigtail" on a 50 amp service socket, you will only get one "leg" of the two 50 amp legs available. However your camper is limited to 30 amps and you still can not draw more than 30 amps without blowing the camper's main 30 amp breaker.
FYI - on a 50 amp service, each leg is capable of delivering 50 amps alternating so that the 50 amp rated neutral can handle the power returning from each leg.
Depending on your air conditioner's start up amperage draw (and any other power needs you are using - like the converter providing 12 volt DC - the TV or phone charger), you may not have enough power available to fire your microwave's magnetron without tripping the 30 amp breaker.
Not sure what you are referring to about the "gas light."
Are you talking about the red "fault" or "reset" light next to the gas "ON" switch for the water heater? That light should ONLY come on when the thermostat is calling for heat and the flame is not lit. Once it lights, the control panel should turn it off. If it stays on you have a "fault" meaning the tank is cold and the fire did not light after 3 attempts.
