I almost exclusively use a 20 amp rated cord (12 awg minimum, 10 awg if you can find one), but I would not run two major electric appliances at the same time. Don't run the microwave and the a/c or an electric heater simultaneously, or the water heater on electric etc. I usually dry camp and plug into the Honda to charge or run the micro for a few minutes. In extreme temperatures where you need a/c or electric heat stick with the 30 amp cord.
