As stated...30 to 15 adapter from Wal Mart for a few bucks. You said they have a few 50A (most places I've been to that have 50 also have a 30 on the same pedestal). You CAN go from 30 to 50..your trailer breaker will be 30A so you won't overload it but, like I said, if you have access to a 50, you probably have access to a 30. The adapter will work with your surge protector without issue if you ever have to go that route.
In any case, I'd go invest in a heavy duty extension cord in case you do have to run on 15A. Smaller gauge will possibly heat up a little more than you'd like.
