Got 2 honda eu2200 generators. When i pair them and plug in my camper (120v) to the 30amp serve it blows the camper main fuse. Now one eu2200 has 2 ,, 20 amp outlets and the other has 1,,20 amp outlet and one 30 amp outlet. Now im using a adapter to go from the 30 amp service to the 30 amp service on the camper. If i take the camper wire and plug it into the other generator with the two 20 amp outlets alls good. Yes the left and right cables and grounds are hooked up right.

Adapter is a twist lock, Correct?
Tripping of the RV breaker would indicate a problem in the rig.
Does the rig work when using shore power to a commercial 30 amp receptacle?
Make and model of rig?

Is it really blowing a fuse or is it tripping the EMS? Did you try bonding the ground+neutral? Have you ever used that adapter before? Maybe it's miswired and tripping the EMS?

If it's really tripping a fuse or circuit breaker in the RV, I can't think of any reason for that, I'd measure the 30A output to make sure it's really 120V.

measure the voltage at the adapter's TT30 before you plug in the RV.

Also make sure you don't have too much turned on
Water heater
A/C
Microwave are all big load items. have ALL of them off. Turn their breakers off


Home was where I park it. but alas the.

First poor cell to no cell at camp ground. So my response time will be poor cuz I have to leave the campground. With the other 4000 old generator or just plugging it into a 20 amp house outlet with adapter it works fine. Alls off in camper. Yes its popping a breaker. I have adapter that goes into the 30 amp outlet that brings it down to a standard 20-amp plug plugging into that in pops. Pupping it into the othe generator with the 2 20amp outlets it work fine. I see nothing on the companion adapter cords to lock them in
