Mobile Charger Adaptor Question

We have a camping spot that has 30 amp, 120 volt, TT-30R, 2-pole camper connectors. The mobile charger supplied with my lightning has 4 prongs, the camper outlet has 3, I purchased an adaptor and from a camper dealership but it would not power on the charger. Now I’m a complete idiot when it’s come to electricity but I did ask the “camper guy” and he said he has had several Tesla owners purchasing adaptors for the same purpose. I was wondering if anyone else has tried this?

Both will be very slow, even if using 120V TT-30.

Tesla's Mobile Connector may allow 120V charging through one leg of the 14-50 (adapter's pin diagram) and Ford's may not:
