Seriously. I know a little about a lot...I didn't wanna mess this up.

To clarify what you are asking.
You have a 5th wheel with a 50 amp cord and installed a HW50 Progressive monitor in line. You ask do you have to do anything when hooked up to a 30 amp park service.
The answer is if you use a 50 amp to 30 amp pigtail you do not have to do anything.
The 30 amp service has 1 hot wire, 1 neutral and 1 ground.
What happens is the 30 amp pigtail splits the single 30 amp hot so it will feed both hots going into your 5th wheel.
Now you have to remember you can not exceed 30 amps total or you will trip the campground 30 amp breaker.
So in reality you only have 30 amps total to use in your 5th wheel as you are getting in reality two 15 amps capacity on each leg in the trailer.
Here is a basic wiring diagram of the 50 to 30 amp pigtail/convertor plug.
Hope this clarifies what you are asking.
