Good deal, sounds like you need to keep him.

Best news is that cord is full size and will carry 15 amps without an annoying maybe dangerous voltage drop. Have fun!

I'm getting a bit concerned about those Tigers ... South Carolina is not going to be a push over next Saturday. At least the Saints have one win under their belt!

Watch what you run in the camper with that cable though.

Most likely no air conditioner. Pulling 14 or 15 amps (air alone!) through 50 feet of 15 amp rated cord will cause a pretty hefty voltage drop and even if the compressor turns over it could cause problems with the low voltage. I know it is 10 gauge so you did good. Just be careful.

Maybe no microwave. Again heavy amp draws.

IMO, stick to the converter items (lights and such) and the TV.

Thanks for the warning!
I am only planning on using the lights, refrigerator and maybe the radio. Again, I just didn't want to run down the house batteries and didn't want to use up the LP Gas running the generator while I was just fooling around in there!

Fridge is ok too! I forgot to add that.
Nice that the cord is 10 gauge. Sweet.

This is what i use. A standard 3-prong (male) house plug on one end and 30 amp heavy duty 3-socket (female) connector that matches your coach power cable. I can run everything on a 20-amp house circuit.

sorry the pic is a little dark.

James, they call that kind a dogbone adapter, because when you lay it out flat it looks kinda like a dogbone.

It sounds funny, but it's true.

Thanks for all the help! The new cord with the adapter worked great.
