50 amp plug

I have to remove my 50 amp plug on the side of my rv. This is the plug that shore power connects too. Question is on the inside of the plug how does the # 6 wires terminate? I' m guessing screw terminals, but I have never looked at the backside of a 50 amp plug . I need to replace the existing #6 cord with a longer piece from plug to breaker panel. I want to place my surge protect in a more accessible place. Cedar creek must have been short of cable that day because there is no slack .

My guess would be screw terminals also. Wear thick gloves to protect you hand when you tighten down on those plugs/screws. Speaking from painful experience.
