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

It's kinda hard to really understand what exactly you are asking, but if it is using an adapter to hook your 50 amp RV into a 30 amp outlet, then according to the FAQ section of Progressive Industries........ yes, you are good to go.

EMS-SURGE & VOLTAGE PROTECTION MODELS
Q: Should a Hardwired EMS be installed before or after the transfer switch?
A: A hardwired EMS should be installed prior to the transfer switch. The reason for this is most RV generators already have built-in voltage and frequency protection. If the EMS is installed after the transfer switch, this leaves the transfer switch vulnerable to power problems.
Q: Can I use an adapter and maintain full protection?
A: Yes. An adapter can be used and the RV will maintain full electrical and surge protection.
Q: Is there a difference in protection between the different EMS models?
A: No. All EMS's offer the same protection.
Q: Can I add a second remote display to the wired in models?
A: Yes, but only to the EMS-HW30C and EMS-HW50C models. An additional remote cannot be added to the LC-HW30 and LC-HW50 models.
