I wouldn’t bother changing the wire, the one on the DC is plenty for the current it pulls (remember this is 240v, so the amps on each leg is 1/2 of the total). It is plenty safe to run the DC on the 30 amp circuit, and you can do what you want with the extension….but my choice would be to install a 240V/20A circuit dedicated to the DC. You find the switching between the dryer and dc to get old after a while.
