Not exactly a mod

I picked this up in Quartzsite today. I have been looking for something like this and the ones I saw were way over priced. I really hate dragging out that 50 amp cord, especially in cool weather. It is all but impossible to roll it back up at times. With this I can use a 30 amp cord that is a lot more user friendly. Another plus is that I can now go from 50 to 30 to 15 and not have to mess with the heavy cord.

The second pic is the storage space behind our range. I added a few shelves to keep things organized. Sewer stuff on the bottom, electrical in the center and clean water on the top.

One can never go wrong with a couple of adapters on hand. My 30amp can be a challenge when it's cold, can't imagine rolling up a 50amp!

Not to many TT's have an outside storage cabinet like in your photo..., but I was fortunate that my '05' Eagle came with one located on the backside of my double-door wardrobe cabinet. Don't know what I would do without one (now that would be an interesting mod).

ps: Quartzsite is on my bucket list.

Those are nice. I had to go back to my dealer to purchase one the first time we brought the new rig home. I forgot that I had a 30a service in my home parking spot and no way to adapt it to the Marinco input. Now I don't have to wrestle the 50a all the time. All I am limited to is running 1 AC at a time.

I paid about $75 bucks for it, I'll bet you beat that by a mile at Quartzsite.

Norty1, I found some for more than $75. I picked this one up for $65. I wasn't happy but now I don't have to look any more. Next move is to find a 30amp cord at a swap meet for the right price.

I wanted the same thing. I also did not want to use an adapter. I spent a little more money and bought cord and built in adapter at amazon. Heres the link.

I had a 25' 30a extension cord from my old rig. Turns out. I use it more than the 50a cause it is always plugged in at home to 30a service.

Dlfeather, that is the best deal yet. 25' cord with the right ends. By the time I get a 30 amp cord I am sure the Amazon one will be cheaper. And no sales tax. That is a good find.

It is nice but expensive. Our local Walmart carries the extension cords.
