30 to 50 amp ?

I have a 2013 FC with a 30 amp port. Can I plug into a 50 amp supply, using a pigtail converter, without harming the electrical system?

You need a special 50 to 30 amp pigtail that will look something like this. If that is what you have, you are good to go!

Thanks - I didn't want to overpower the system but it sounds OK to use.

just make sure you're plugging into an rv outlet. a home 220/240v looks the same but WILL damage your trailer.

The fifty amp plug is 240. They just go phase to neutral on two different legs, not phase to phase, so you never actually use 240 volts in the trailer. The fifty to thirty adapter just uses one phase to neutral...

So, yes, you'll be okay using the 50 to 30 adapter plug shown above...
