Welcome Easler 7267 - Your new AS friends above have given you great information. Just a couple extra notes. 1. The 30 amp connector in the front can be used for both a generator or shore (campground) power. We used our's last summer when the campground's power supply was far in front of the site. It serves the same purpose as the 30 amp on the side of your AS. 2. If there is 50 and 30 amp offered, I have found every campground has 2 electric hookups on the electric post - one 30 - one 50. Your 30 amp power cord that was given to you with the AS will fit all 30 amp supplies. If there is a 20 amp ONLY on the electric post (no 30 or 50) you should carry an adaptor for 30 amp to 20 amp. It may even be in your AS package. Do not use your AC with 20 amp hookup.

If you have a 30 amp trailer, you can get a 30 amp to 50 amp adapter to plug into power and vice versa.

But this part of the owners manual makes it sound like you could plug into 50 amp service using this remote generator hook up. Am I wrong about this? As I said before my wife and I are newbies at this and would appreciate any advice!

Hey easler7267, could you take a picture or a scan of that part of the owner's manual? Maybe this is something that Airstream needs to fix and update.
Just very curious.
