I think he meant "tripping the circuit breakers" since fuses are for the 12 volt DC stuff....not the 120 volt AC things.
Yes, several campers do this on high amp electrical things. They will run an extension cord to the 15/20 amp outlet in the campground pedestal to provide another power source for something in the trailer. However, if the 15/20 amp pedestal outlet is wired as a slave to the 30 amp outlet, it may still trip the circuit breaker on the pedestal.
