50 amp to 15 amp adapter

So as I was getting ready to leave on our last trip I wanted to make sure our batteries were topped off and to cool the fridge the day before. The only way to get power to the RV when itís at the house is an extension cord and typical 15amp outlet. (Really miss the 50 amp outlet at my last house).


Seemed like overkill to get the whole 50 amp cord out to hook to the RV, and then use the converter at the end of that. Aside from the hassle, Iím also a little concerned with theft. Wondering if there is a much shorter cable that can be connected to the camper, and then use the adapter - like only a foot or two?

Any ideas or easy to just charge the batteries or power the inverter?

I have been using this for 2 years. Works great and all I have to pull out at home is a regular extension cord:

I don't have 50 amp in my rig, only 30. I thought all 50 amp rv plugs were 4 connectors like the picture. How does the twist lock 3 conductor attach? I must be missing something.

If you look at the barrel of the twist lock you can see the ground connection point. That is your 4th wire/ prong on the other end.
