I've been looking for an adapter to plug my 5th wheel which has a 50 amp power cord into my generator that has a 30 amp twist-lock outlet and can't seem to find one.
So the adapter needs to have a male end for the 30A twist-lock outlet on one end and a female end on the 50A side.
Any ideas?


Just say no to the payload police ">

Lots of choices online and at CW and other RV stores.

Many people will not click on a link as it may not be what it appears to be.
Maybe this site could delete some of the ridiculously long threads about frivolous topics or upgrade the software?
I know the mods work hard and for free but c'mom man. This is 2022. This isn't dial up anymore.

I don't think either of the linked adapters are the correct ones. Most 30 amp generators have a 30 amp 220 volt 4 pin twist lock. I would think that the adapter is available some where but if it is not just buy the ends you need and make one.

TravelinDog:
Would you post the NEMA number for your thirty amp twist lock? Is it a three prong or four prong?
Roger10378:
Many gensets have only a three wire twist lock.

Bucky good point, before clicking any link on a forum I let my mouse hover over the link to see where it is directing me to. I don't disagree about the software, just beyond the Moderators pay grade [emoticon]

Be careful. There are a number of plug patterns. Some of them look identical but they are not.

For example the 30amp marine plug has a tab on ONE prong.
