Renter with Power Adapter Question

I am taking a trip in a few weeks with a rental Jayco Jayflight SLX and the rental place is out of town, and not entirely helpful. I'm sure you guys will be great.

I have a Champion generator (it is loud, I know, but where we are going it won't be an issue) that has a 30 Amp RV outlet (This model). What I can't get the rental place to tell me is what power cords and/or adapters I may need.

From what little I can gather online is that the trailer should have a 25' power cable with it, is that correct? And if that is the case, will I need any adapter to allow it to connect to my 30 amp outlet on my generator?

Any help you can give me is VERY MUCH appreciated. I am totally in the dark and want to be prepared.

The RV socket on the generator appears to 120V 30A 60Hz -- No Adapter should be required.

As the previous posters said, you're good to go. That is unless your luck is like mine and things don't quite work like they should. Whenever something breaks or quits working for me, the hardware store is way to far away. For the cost, I would throw one of these in your tool box just in case something goes wrong with the RV plug on the gen. Then you can at least draw power from the other outlet.

Thanks for the info. So the power line that comes out of the trailer terminates in a male plug that looks like this? Just want to be sure so I know what to expect. VERY new to this travel trailer stuff. IF this goes well, I may get one for the family.

Thanks again for the help!

I would turn off the breakers in the trailer then start the gen plug it in and let it run for few minuts to warm up then turn on the breakers one at a time

I really appreciate that info. Am about to use the new generator for the first time with the RV.
