That embossed voltage doesn’t mean a thing if the circuit is wired incorrectly to the outlet. Too bad that that particular outlet can be connected to either 110 or 220 vac depending on the intended function. It should be 110 vac for RV hookups.

A RV 30TT receptacle is used only for RVs. It is for that use only. It is 30 amp 125 volt.

Then how come an electrician wired 220 vac to it?

A poorly train person impersonating an electrician.
Action should be taken by the OP with his states authority to have his license pulled. OP should get persons insurance and file a claim.
Most states require continuing education for renewal of license. I have seen many people walk out on final periods of classes saying I never work on that. Some instructors allow them to get full credit.
It is a crime to not follow instructions for electrical installations.

The OP stated that he is staying at a friend's place and the friend who is not an electrician installed the outlet. Or should I say that he exchanged the 220 volt outlet for a 110 volt outlet but it still has 220 volts
Are you going to sue a friend that lets you stay at their place, probably for free because he screwed up? Scratch one friendship if you do.
I would guess that you lost your converter, microwave, tv and any other 120 volt stuff plugged in.

Action should be taken by you to read the thread? From what I gathered it's his buddy. Bummer situation for sure.

I once received a valuable piece of advice from a FAA inspector in charge of making sure my aircraft radio shop followed the rules. He said that if you don’t know how to do what your doing correctly then don’t do it.
