I looked at your pictures and did not see the actual plug. Did I miss it?

After looking at the pictures I would buy a new 30 amp cord and wire it into the junction box. Someone mentioned earlier about buying an RV extension cord and cuting off the female end and using that. That's a good idea if you can't find a ready made cord and plug.

Looks as though some one has made a shore power cord out of a standard 15/20 amp extension cord.
You should replace as indicated by myRedracer! The cord he shows will go through the hole to the metal junction box. My 18 inch suggestion does not appear to be long enough.

Yes pick up a 30A RV cord. To make it somewhat easy you can buy a 30A RV extension cord, cut off the female end and wire it into the junction box. They sell them at most home improvement stores. I know Menards does.

It looks like a 30 amp cord could possibly get hung on the 4x4 junction when you push the cord all the way in. Maybe relocate the box to one side a bit if you have enough of the #10 romex to work with. But it's a bit hard to tell from the pics.
