I plug my 50 amp AS into a 15 amp outlet all the time. Nothing to worry about. No A/C and don't use the microwave/Convection, but it will run your lights and TV, etc.

If all you are doing it plugging in at home .... forget the adapters and the monster heavy 50A cable. Wire up a heavy duty / 20A extension cord with the 50A connector on the end of it. Less hassle to lug. No connections to fall out or get wet. If it gets destroyed, less expensive to replace.
