Helpful Expert Reply:

If you use a 30 amp surge protector on a 50 amp circuit you'd be limiting the circuit to 30 amps and there isn't a way to increase the amperage. You'd want something like the part # CAM55313.

For a 50 amp extension cable that is 50 feet long the part # A10-5050E would work great. For 25 feet part # A10-5025EH, or for 10 feet # A10-5010EH.
