Purchased a KV Durango 5th wheel yesterday. My first 5er and my first 50amp unit. My current unit is a 30amp TT. When prepping for a trip I usually plug it to standard house current to run the fridge and lights while loading. What adapter(s) would you suggest to do the same with this 50amp unit. Also I have a Progressive industries emp for the 30 and I am going to buy one for the 50 as well. I had one person say keep the 30 for cases when your sight may not have 50 amp current available. Well I hadn't considered that. Was planning on selling the 30. Thoughts??

I would see if the fridge is hard wired in. Many have a 15 amp plug on the cord. If so you can just use a 12 gauge extension cord, plug in only the fridge. Use battery for lights.

1. a 15 amp to 50 amp adapter. ON AMAZON
2. sell the 30 amp Progressive. The 50 amp will protect you under all conditions.
3. (question not asked) get a 30 amp to 50 amp adapter too. ON AMAZON
