I'd like to run the AC on dehumidify and the charger with that setup.

But your adapter has me thinking... do you have a part number?
Some y cords will not work with only one side plugged in or both if the 2 30A receptacles arent 220 volts aoart due to phase...yes I know some would argue the ohase semantics.

As to having a 30 amp cord to extend to a good receotacle...great if you can find one...some marinas are pretty rough electrically.

The 30 to 50 OCDiver and I have is nice in those situations.
