Once you have the adapter, you should be able to use all your appliances – just not at the same time. You will have to manage your power usage, and be particularly aware at appliance start-up, when things like the microwave and air conditioner tend to draw more power than they do once they are up and running.

I did mention above that there is one qualification to keep in mind when hooking your camper up to a normal household outlet. This really only comes into play if you have an air conditioner, and it might not even be a problem in that case.
For instance, on 85-Amps, we may run our refrigerator and air conditioner at the same time but will refrain from using the microwave until the air conditioner is off. Or you might opt for running your refrigerator on propane and you will still have enough power leftover for running your air conditioner and microwave at the same time. Different RVs will have different wiring schematics, so you may have to experiment.
If you plan to run your air conditioner or any kind of heating appliance when plugged in to an extension cord, then you really need the proper extension cord for the job, and that would be one of these expensive cords. You might be able to get away with the heavy-duty extension cord in your garage, but you actually run the risk of damaging the air conditioner due to the voltage drop caused by the smaller cord. And if you run a heater with that type of cord, you run the risk of starting a fire by overloading the cord. (Heaters always include a warning not to use them with extension cords, and that is why.) You can also get an RV extension cord at WalMart
