Tomorrow we'll be at Maumee Bay State Park where I had this happen last year. I'll definitely take pictures.
With Murphy's law being what it is, I'll probably not have a problem with the electric box!
May not get pics posted till Friday when we get home. (Not sure if I can upload pics from there).

I have had the same problem with my Surge Guard. It works but the terminals are just barely touching. The body of the Surge Guard is big enough that it pulls the plug out a little. I am sure if I get a very short extension cord there won't be a problem.

Well what can I say. Plugged right into box today.
No problem. Did have to do it myself this time as DH back was hurting bad after drive. He's usually in charge of electric and gas, and x/chocks. By the way I love the x/chocks,. Really make a difference in the movement .
We're ready for a beautiful week!

This solves the problem. It is made specifically for this issue.

Post 23 says there is "No problem."

No problem on some pedestals. On others there is a problem where the plug hits the pedestal and won't plug in all of the way.

Are you thinking we just made up this issue?

No 325BH, he did not say that somebody just thought this problem up and does not exist. He repeated the op's post that there was no problem this time hooking their electrical up at Maumee Bay State Park. Reread the posts.

No - 325BH did not use the words "this time." He simply said "Post #23 says there is no problem."

So Post #24 solves the problem when there IS a problem. Apparently the problem only occurs with certain style pedestals.

adapter post #24. Tell me if I'm viewing this right. 50A in and 50A out? it moves the recepticle out, keeping the orientation the same? If yes, I can see that could be useful. I was thinking the OP was at pedestal with 30A only?
