That is an EXREAMLY dangerous situation that you have created. Having hot male lugs can and will hurt/kill someone. Your really need to install at least a manual transfer switch to chose between the 2 connection points so there is no possibility of them both being hot at the same time.

What if the door to the unused connection point (that is HOT ) is opened up by a child and they are electrocuted. Can you live with that ?

You WILL need a transfer switch either automatic or manual. It’s very dangerous not to have one. Dangerous for you and everyone who might not know that the other receptacle is hot. You do not wont someone to get into 50 amps of power especially when the ground might be wet. People here are always worried about being sued. This will get you sued and they or their family will win.
