Debbie, we had my brother in law,(an electrician) install a 30 amp outlet in our garage so we can plug it in directly. It has an on/off switch and I turn it off before plugging and un-plugging. I like to do things out in the rv too, and it's nice to be able to run the air if needed.
Glad your cord worked out ok, this is just something for you to think about. Enjoy your 'nesting'!

Remember everyone that "electrician's," friends or otherwise, may NOT know your camper is 110 volts (NOT 220 volts) and has a specific wiring requirement) See Attachment

They will look at your plug and think, "dryer" and wire it 220. Your camper IS NOT a dryer. 220 can do very bad things to your camper.

herk7769 - Thanks for this information. I have printed out your pdf file and will keep it with the RV in case we do decide to install a 30 amp outlet.

I have found that "That which goes without saying; should have been said."
It has not failed me yet. If you already knew that, then file under "ignore".
