I believe that's the correct outlet, except that it's really a 120/240 50a outlet.
The Midwest part number from the CW spec is a 120/240 split phase box. Camping World has it listed incorrectly as a 110V box.

Well....this will help you get started on that next project as soon as you have power at your house.

It is fun to watch others walk a similar path!

Since you are talking about at home, you might think that you will be the only one to flick switches in your trailer, but your wife|children|close neighbour|whoever might not know that you think that.
Excellent suggestioin ... Not laughing here, but my wife hit the AC/Heat pump while plugged in at home and melted down the adapter. I am not sure just why the GFCI or breaker did not blow, but a little corrosion on the plug or adapter/ cable caused the two connectors to heat up and burn through! Heed the advice given above about max amps and extension cords.

Buy the 50 amp 120v box and a 50amp breaker to fit your home electrical box (look in the panel box door for model or brand) and I would use #8 wire. Consult with an electrician for proper wire size. Camping World has them in store, Home Depot or an electrical supply store can order one. Setup is the same as the 30amp.
The #8 wire is rated at 40 amps therefore a #6 which is rated at 60 amps is the correct size for the 50 amp service.

Why settle for anything less?
