We saw this a couple times this summer with the pup.
The cord FR now provides has a handle which means the cord itself is at a right angle to the prongs of the plug. I'm sure this is considered an enhancement for those who had difficulty with a straight plug with no handle.

A couple electric boxes had the 30 amp plug near the bottom with no aligned cut out. I was able to force a tight bend in the wire to make the plug go in. A neighbor with the same problem had to go to the camp store and pick up a short (1ft) extension to get his properly plugged in.

I will be doing that also, since the new trailer has the same issue. I'm also not fond of the detached cord design. I'm expecting I will leaver the cord somewhere.....

Yup. It just spaces your 50 amp plug away from the receptacle by an inch or two. It fixes the issue where your plug won't go all the way in because of interference from the bottom lip of some pedestals.
