First thing that comes to mind tho., is it CSA/UL listed? Would be stamped on it somewhere if so. Extension cords and adapters aren't required to be CSA/UL listed. Non-listed adapters like that, likely made in Ch*na, could be substandard quality and cause issues esp. if trying to suck blood out of a stone and drawing up to 30 amps on a pair of side by side recepts. in a pedestal. And what if a fellow RV-er pulls in and wants to use the other 30 amp recept?
If you actually read the Amazon web page which was cited, you will see that it is UL and UL-C listed.

Thank you everyone for your responses. I have a much better understanding of how this works and what to watch out for if I use it.

Have a great day!

Another thing to consider is, do you really need to use it? Once I hooked up my hardwired EMS, I can now see that running my AC is about 9 amps (after the initial kick-start). In theory, you should be able to run both Acs on 30 amp, as long as you're not simultaneously also trying to run other high usage appliances like the water heater on electric.

I know a lot of people point out the whole 30 total vs 100 total thing, but really, my rig (albeit with single Ac) doesn't even use anywhere near 30. The two legs combined, in normal usage, is less than 20.
