Is it safe to plug a power strip into a 30 or 50 amp electrical outlet made for an RV to get power for various tools at an RV park? If not s standard power strip, do they make one that is safe to use?

It’ll be the weak point of the circuit, that’s for sure. Lol

You’d need to install a 20 amp gfci protection between the strip and the 50 amp plug

with the proper adapter taking the 30a outlet down to a 15/20a wall outlet, it would still be just 120v that you could plug in a power strip.

As far as the 50a, there are 2 hot legs (120v) and would likely require a double adapter, one taking it to a 30a outlet and another taking it to the 15/20a outlet.

just creating daisy chain(s) ... the power strip would be the weak link instead of popping a breaker though

Most power strips/surge protectors have a built-in 15a circuit breaker.

Most RV pedestals also have a regular 110-120VAC 15 to 20 amp plug in addition to 30 and 50 amp RV outlets.
