120 volt to 50amp plug?

I have a question... Bare with me I'm new to this..I just purchased a Georgetown and having an inspection done in a few days for my ESP...The warranty company says I need to have it plugged in.. Even if it's just plugged into 120 volt...so here is my dilemma I do not have a 50amp plug at home and don't have the slightest idea how to wire it to 120volt outlet...

Can anyone help me how this is done??

Thanks in advance

You can buy an adapter from 50 amp to 20 amp which will permit you to plug into any wall socket. The problem will be that you won't be able to run all your electrical systems without tripping a breaker, such as AC and/or microwave.

If they require all electrical items to work you could briefly turn on individual items without any issues.

I am not sure whether there is actually a 20 to 50 amp convertor available. I use a 20 to 30 then a 30 to 50. Get them. You will use them at some campgrounds depending on where you go.

If they want to see the AC running, start the gen.

You can go from 50 amp all the way to "15" amp
50 to 30 dog bone then a 30 to 15 adapter.
