adapter

This may be what you are looking for but kind of expensive.

If not they have just about every variety 50 to 30.

I purchased a 30 to 50 amp off Amazon, it is a blue one, which is very flexible when cold, I like it...

This one with a 30AMP extension cord is the way I would go. That and the first dogbone that was posted in case you need both cords for length.

Found this at Home Depot. I think it's exactly what you're looking for. I may run out and buy one.

That is $50 more money than the blue one from Amazon, and it will be stiff when cold, the blue one from Amazon is very flexible...

Ah ha, yes, I missed this as I was looking for a link to click. The one you found does look better - flexible and less expensive.

Is there a shorter 50 amp to 30 amp cord? I would like to have one about 10 to 12 feet long to use when hooking up a generator.

Thanks all. I get what you are saying. I have done house wiring with a myriad of 220 plugs and receptacle, but I am a novice with RV plugs and receptacles.

I am shopping for my first RV and have about decided which AS RV I want. So, I am definitely an "RV Plug Novice." Sales Persons are pretty useless with answers to my questions such as, " a technician will go over every aspect after you buy, and before you pull out of the lot." OK. I hope so, but I would appreciate a little forewarning about some of the little extras that might be needed.

I have seen that the plug end of an AS 50 Amp cable has 4 prongs. I assume the other end that plugs into the trailer has 4 prongs/conductors as well???

I have seen that some camp sites have no 50 amp service, but may have 20 or 30 amp services, which may run my lights, charge the house batteries, and may run a microwave or one A/C.

My question is do the new AS RV's generally just come with one 50 amp service cord/cable, and if I need to plug in to a smaller service or a generator, do I need to furnish an array of adaptors?

Pretty much you are correct. You'll get a 50amp cord with the trailer. It is wise to carry a 50 amp to 30 amp adapter(dogbone) for the instance where you might find yourself in a campground where you can only get a 30 amp connection. The 50 amp cord plugs into it then the pedestal. They make 15/20 amp adapters as welll, it's not tonlikely you'll need one but it's not expensive insurance just in case. Keep in mind you'll always be limited to lowest connection amperage. So if your 50 amp cord goes through a 30 amp adapter to the pedestal you can only use 30amps. The breaker on the pedestal provides 30 amp protection in this case.

I am using this:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Voltec Industries 16-00588 30-Ampere to 50-Ampere RV Locking 10/3 STW Cord, 25-Feet

Also for even smaller current draws I use a 50 to 20 amp adaptor.
