Advise your electrician you simply want a standard 50A range outlet installed. Suggest that you request he install the ground at the top of the outlet so your RV power cord hangs freely. I used 6 ga wire for a run of about 15 feet.

Time Roll did you read the face of that outlet you posted
30 amps 125 Volts.

As I said up thread. Many electricians do not read.
Yes of course. Both NEMA 5-30 and 30-TT read the same.

The issue is the 30-TT looks very similar to 10-30 and in it goes at 240 volts.
Electrician knows 5 series is 120v. I think it should have been named 5-30-TT
