Could someone tell me how to make a 50 to 30 amp adapter? What parts and wire size will I need? Is it easier/cheaper just to buy one?
Thanks.

Bruce,

Camping world has both flavors of the 50/30 30/50 adapter for $12.99 each (club prices):

By the time you buy the components, you might as well buy the assembled adapter.  Even at the list price of $18 at CW, you won't save much money doing it yourself.

Thanks. You guys are right. By the time I spend the gas rounding up the parts, I might as well get it from CW.

Not only will it not save you money, but the molded ones from the RV shop are weather proof, while a home made one probably is not.
