Campground Power Pedestal question

Very first time using our brand new Montana; staying at a local campground for a month to get used to everything. Been reading the MOC for months in preparation so I naturally printed off the excellent "Multi-meter to check campground pedestal" post and ran the test before hooking up for the first time. Got some unexpected readings for Step2 of the 50Amp test (testing each hot lead to ground). Each result was the same, only 30V for each side. All of the other tests were fine. Since I wasn't sure about this one, I used the 30Amp outlet instead which tested OK all around. Can someone tell me what the 30V readings on the 50Amp test mean and is it OK to use the 50Amp outlet?
