What you might want to do is get an electrician to run you a 50 amp service to where your Atlas will be parked so you can run everything in the trailer.

And remember, it is not a 220 volt 50 amp service like your house. It is two 110 volt systems of 50 amps. Your house 220 volt is 2 hots and a ground. Your trailer is two hots, a neutral and a ground.
You can buy a 50 amp to 15 amp adapter on Amazon, that is what I use to plug my RV into house current, doing that will keep your batteries charged. This way you only have one adapter to plug into the house. I would suggest to get a 50 to 30 amp adapter also, for those times you stay in parks that only have 30 amp service.

I would just amazon and have all the adapters anyway. You may not think you will ever need them until your at a campground with a faulty plug (campground side) and you need a different plug and every store around has no idea what you are talking about.

this is what I use at the house to keep the batts charged. That way the heavy 50 amp cord stays out of the weather, since you use a regular heavy duty extension cord to an outlet.

That's a pretty good idea just to keep those vampire loads from killing the battery. That looks like the ONLY adapter I don't have.

That is the exact same one that I have, works great.

I bought a 10 gauge 50' extension cord to go with my 50amp to 15 cord off Amazon.

Just bought one! Will use it to cool down the fridge the day before I leave to camp.
