There are much better ways to do it.
Perhaps you're right.
You pointed out earlier that the legs were 180 out of phase; so I gather that Olroy is suggesting running a separate circuit for the one leg, to handle the 'heavy grunt' and using the other leg for 'normal' services.
I only have one A/C so that would be a lot of work to get the results I need.
Suppose that if I use a 50-30 adapter, that would give me a full 30 amps for the services that I use????
My meter showing an abnormal voltage drop, indicates to me that the 'delivery' is not sufficient at some campsites. (like this last one in Wheatley, Ontario.)
Other campsites give me the 'full Monty'.
