I have shore power on my trailer and know that with the adapter I have I can plug into 110V but I'm wondering what type of power this has based on the plug The wire says 30amp but the plug to me looks like a 220V dryer type plug here's a typewriter drawing:

Any thoughts? 110V or 220V?

See this link:

Your plug is dual rated for 125/250, so the only way to tell for sure what you have is with a voltmeter. Dryers typically have 220 volt phase-to-phase and 110 volts phase to ground in a 3-pole 3-wire configuration.

This is why it is possible to lose an incoming phase of 220 to your house and half the circuits do not work.

I use an adapter cord with a nema 14-30r plug and a STD 3 prong plug for a landline that is used for low load applications such as lights and a fridge on one side of the bus.
For full rated usage I use a heavy 4 wire cord with the 30 amp nema receptacles and my gen.

There a many places you can get adapter cords to suit your configuration.
As per..
