The fridge draws very little, just pick up a common & inexpensive #14 or #16 extension cord. At whatever length, up to 100'. The #10 - 30 ampere cord will work too with a 15 or 20 amp adapter at the outlet, plus someday you may need a 30 amp extension when camping and it's too far to the pedestal. I like my idea so much I'm headed to Walmart to pick up a 30 amp extension today! Will leave my #14 extension in the garage and pick up a 30 to 20 amp adapter as suggested above.

Just be sure the electrician knows how to wire a 30 amp RV outlet. It will still be only 110 and not 220. Several people have ended up with blown equipment because the electrician made a big Boo Boo.

If you tell him its a 30amp 120 line the receptacle is different than a 30 amp 240 line. It is still possible to wire it incorrectly but, the receptacle is clearly marked.

if you wanna save some mula go and buy some 12/3 or 10/3 sow from home depot buy a female end that fits your camper plug and buy a male 20 amp end and make your own cord.
