Last two campsites I was at btw had no 30a, only 15a, but did in fact have two duplexes per post each with its own 15a breaker.
OP's original goal was to be able to run AC and microwave at the same time when presented with 2 x 15a circuit
Only safety issue would be if you only plugged one of the male 15a Edison's in - the unplugged one would be hot. Could come up with a work around for that when I have my morning coffee.
FYI - TQ electrician here as well.
im no electrician, but i see whats he is trying to accomplish. From the begining he has stated 2 x 15a circuit....not pulling 30a from a single outlet.
now as to wether or not there is an abundance of power pedestals with 2 seperate 15a circuits i dont know???
I do have one of the 50a cords that splits off into a 30a plug and a 15a plug for use in sites with no 50a. works well, but those are seperate circuits.
I dont know, but im following this thread to see what happens! Would be nice to be able to run my a/c and tv when only presented with 15a service.
Like i always say, its better to have something and not need it, than to REALLY need it and not have it!...
