This entire 35' cable and ends are now in my garage waiting for me to cut and repair the end.

Since I was camping at the beach when it happened, I needed power, so I went and purchased a new 50 amp twist lock RV power cord form the closest RV supply house..

The pedestal is as much responablefor burning up YOUR plug as anything. a bad, burnt terminal will cause that.
Take a flashlite and look at the pedistal outlet

Park sent an electrical contractor the following day.. he opened the pedistal and found the wires to all be tight, but the oiutlet itself was NOT secure to the back..

This probably caused the the plug to not go in all the way when I got there..

Bet they didn't even offer $20 to offset the price of the new cord, since it =was= on their end.

The Supervisor was here about an hour ago. He asked how I got fixed and how much it cost. He asked me if I was ok if he credited my credit card used to book $300.00.. He asked If that sounded fair to me, I happily accepted.
