What size wire for 50 AMP RV Plug: Everything you need to know
What Is a Full Hookup at an RV Park? | USA Today
The option to run a amp recreational vehicle, or RV, from a 50 amp outlet is useful to many RVers. To avoid catastrophic damage to appliances, equipment and wiring circuits, and a real danger of fire, the amperage must be stepped down to 30 amps. This is easily done, by using a male to female connector, referred to by RVers and manufacturers as a "dogbone" connector, because it has two bulbous terminals joined by a short, slender cord. Dogbone adapters comprise a heavy-duty three-conductor wire between a amp plug and a amp outlet.

This may seem like a stupid question BUT some of the information that I have read on RV parks has the full hookups as 50Amp connections. My RV will be a 30Amp. Do I need to purchase an adapter to go from a 30A to a 50A? I'm also "assuming" that I would need a 30A female to a 50A male? Is this correct or am I jumping ahead of the gun?
