I will say that a friend brought her RV with a 30amp circuit and had no problem using our house power.
Jim, a few questions please:
1.Are any of these dogbones home made, or are they store bought?
2. Are you plugging into a 15/20 amp GFCI outlet at your house?
3. What kind of extension cord are you attempting to use....and is it store bought or home made (or has had an end replaced)?
4. Is anything turned on in the RV?
Pics of 1-3 might help too.
