The NEMA L5-30P is 120V only. The RV's don't need 240V, so the two hots are connected to the single hot from the 120V plug. Tesla needs voltage across the two hots for the 14-50P, so it would see 0V with this adapter.

This one would work, just limit the current to 24A manually. AC WORKS® [EVL530MS-018] 1.5FT EV Adapter 30A 125V L5-30P Plug to 50A EV Adapter Cord for Tesla The difference is that the there is now 120V across the two hots on the 14-50 end. The Tesla will charge fine with 120V.

Thx. more expensive.. Is there a 10-30 adapter (dryer plug) esp since I'm limiting it to 24A?

thx. Have that I meant if I could convert 14-30 that to RV plug somehow. But I like this better since not converting. L5-30P Male to RV 50 AMP 14-50R Female (Two hots bridged) with Handle (for RV ONLY, NOT for Tesla)? Too bad Tesla doesn't have that since they seem to be the most reasonable.
You can always build your own plug to outlet pigtail. Tesla just isn't going to offer something like that. You have to pay for someone's time to build it: Just buy the freaking adapter!

Tesla has several nema adapters here Gen 2 NEMA Adapters: . I would think the RV park adapter is pretty common just surprised it's not on their list. I prefer OEM things better for warranty vs aftermarket/ BYO
