Plugging in at home

We have a 2017 Heritage Glen. We bring it to the house 2-3 times a year to clean and wash it. I'm not sure how to get power to it while it's at the house. We have a 50 amp cord. Is there an adapter available to plug in to the house?

Thanks!

Yes there are adaptors. Used one for many years before I put a 30 amp plug in the shed. You may also want to get an adaptor so you can go 50 down to 30 amp, some of the parks we go to only have 30 amp service. Local shops or the internet can get you fixed up.

Just be careful and don't overload the circuit.

Thanks for the information! Guess I should have checked Amazon first!

I'm not endorsing Camco with this post, but am linking to them for their webpage, as they can show you a wide range of adapters that are made... just FYI

Adapters & Dogbones

When viewing them, usually the first amp number will be the Male/M plug, and the second amp number will be the Female/F receptacle.

EX: 30 amp Male to 15 amp female

If you downgrade to a 15 amp plug remember not to turn on your AC or any high amperage devices. Those will overload your circuit. Look into putting in at least a 30 amp receptacle at your house. It will pay huge dividends in the future.

If the extension cord is not too long and no other large power draws are on the circuit a 15 amp circuit will run an air conditioner. My wife used to use our trailer as a "mother in law apartment" when visiting our kids and grand kids over the years. We'd park it at either Son or Daughter's house and plug into a convenient outlet.

She knew enough to not run the microwave, toaster, coffee pot, etc, without turning off the A/C.

Again, the keys are Heavy Duty extension cord (#10 awg preferred) if necessary, no other items on circuit that draw more than a light bulb.

I agree installing at least a 30 amp outlet. I recently encountered a Real Estate agent who was looking for listings in my neighborhood. At first she "liked" the RV Pad. She "LOVED" it when she found out it had 30 amp power post next to it. The value isn't just in your convenience, also can add to property value when time to sell. More than a few people are looking for properties that can accommodate RV's.

Totally agree with you. When I was looking for my last house, one requirement was at least a 30 amp plugin. Then when I just added my RV pad, I installed another 30 amp plug there as well.

If you decide to run a outdoor plug in for your travel trailer and the trailer is 50 amp, then have it wired for a 50 amp circuit. I have a 30 amp 5th wheel, but had a 220V 50 amp circuit installed in the shed where trailer is stored. I use a 50 amp male to two 30 amp female, it is a Y cord adapter that can be purchase online. I run the trailer with one AC unit on one female receptible and a added AC unit on the other female receptible. If and when I up grade to a larger 5th wheel, I will have the 50 amp circuit already installed.
