Something to think about... When you plug and unplug at a campground's pedestal, would be to flip the breaker to OFF, plug into outlet, then flip the breaker to ON.
I've seen people that just plug straight in, and you'll see and hear an arc when the blades make contact with the outlet.
Surely, arcing electricity can't be a good thing. I developed the practice of turning off breaker, connect, then flip on with a lot of different outlets.
And if you looked at the blades on your rental unit's cord...I'd bet they were burnt.
Lots of plugging and unplugging going on, more so than your plugs at home. When's the last time you unplugged your dryer or welder?
