Shore power with 12 with ground plug

Hello Again,

Is there a shore power connection that has the rv connection on the shore side to a normal two prong plug with ground that I can run to my bus thru the window so I can have temp power until I get the correct set up?

Thanks again all.

Don

Maybe an adapter from a 30A cord cap to a 15A receptacle? (or vice versa)

The GFCI version cost a bit more, but is much more kid & pet safe (no shoes).

cord

Yes, the one on the right! Do they make that in a twenty foot cord?

Thanks!

I went to my local rv dealer and they didn't have a clue how to adapt a power cord. I wasn't impressed

Be very careful with these over time, especially if you buy on price (don't)

Next time you meet a real electrician (not anyone in the USA RVing biz) ask them to walk you through how to verify everything is OK internally with a DMM.

First signs of visible damage, replace.

Also never assume the power pole was installed correctly, so many are downright lethal.

Thank you

It should be UL listed. You wouldn't believe the crap I've seen even out of famous name stores.
I once bought a heavy gauge extension cord only to find out that the polarity was reversed within the cord. Always wondered how many were like that. I worked but was not safe and I only discovered it because I was using it to remote an outlet during troubleshooting on a house and using a plug in tester that showed if things were properly wired.

We use a wishbone adapter. Goes from 30 to 15 AMP with a regular outdoor extension. cord. Please note that we have found that plugging in to the 20AMP GFCI in our garage causes the GFCI to pop and eventually break. We plug in to regular household outlet and we run 100 ft of utility cord out to the bus. Works well. No apparent heating of the utility cord either - which we experienced when plugging into the GFCI in the garage. It draws the 15 AMPS only but is plenty to charge our battery bank.
