alternate power plug

I'm not too keen about leaving my 50 amp cord outside when at home due to theft if I back feed through the outside 110 plug will I be able to power the fridge and 12v system?

Are there wiring diagrams available?

Probably won't work since the outside plug is on the GFI which should trip.

Good chance grumpy is right. How about making a short 50 amp cable, then adapting it for a single leg 110v. Just long enough to put the 110 cord under the unit off the ground

A back feed cable - with a male plug on each end - is inherently dangerous, especially to children and others who don't know what the set-up is.

Thanks for the advice I think I'll get a cord grip and pad lock the cord to the wheels.
