Default 30amp Campground RV power

Is there any kind of cable or adapter that I can use for connecting my Minnkota 10amp Battery Charger to the 30amp RV power at a campground?

I'm thinking about doing a multi-day trip this fall to Prineville Res for crappie. I'll be tent camping but my trolling battery will not last 4 days. I was thinking about bringing a generator but I noticed the camp sites have 30amp power. If there's some adapter that I can buy instead of buying a small generator that would be even better.

thanks

All the camp sites I've stayed at with power hook ups also include 110V house style plugs. Call the campground and ask if they have them.

Just google or amazon search 30 amp to 20 amp connector.

Most RV power poles that offer 30 amp also have a 20 amp service plug so you might call and check.

all rv places have the adapter for sale only a few bucks.. and all campgrounds also have a regular plug in on the post.


remember if you have a 20 amp charger and something goes wrong you may not flip the 30 amp breaker.


and if you dont have a hookup someone with one will usually let you plug a charger into their system.

There is an adapter and most campgrounds have both a 30 and 15/20 amp outlets. We were at Antlers Resort at Shasta this year and they didn’t- only the 30 amp outlet. I had to plug the Traegers into the trailer.

Thanks all. I will call the campground and see if they have standard 110 outlets at the poles but likely going to get a 30a to 20a converter from the RV place down the road from me.
