I'm trying to remember here, but don't have my TT available...does the camper cable have the L-shaped prong? I was thinking all three prongs were flat....

Marinco 305BP 30A Male Locking Plug - Marinco 305BP - 30 Amp Plugs & Outlets - Shorepower Plugs & Outlets - Electrical - Boatersland Marine

Then you can connect that cord to the camper and plug the lock ring female socket into this plug.
This is what Turbs had done. What I suggested would cost half as much and give you an adapter to use a regular extension cord while parked at home.

Your camper should have a 1/4 turn twist lock on it.
In my first two pictures its the bigger yellow end with the nut on it.

And the male end is a round ground with 2 straight prongs.

Yes ....
Which would allow the cord I linked to at amazon to connect the two.

Original cord with camper plugs into camper.
New cord connects to that and then the pole.

Least inexpensive way to do this.

okay...think I'm getting it now.... I just didn't think the outlet at the hitching post had an L-shaped prong on them.... I'll see if I can't find the connector at Lowe's maybe.... if not, I can order online or even buy an extension cord to just have one handy.

Thanks everyone for helping out!

He has two cords already; just two identical camper cords. they won't connect to each other without an end change on one or an adapter special made to have a 30 amp female and a camper end male.

The cord is the expensive part. Might be just as easy to cut off the camper end (female) and put a 30 amp female on it to make an extension cord.

Yep so all he needs is a male and female 30 amp twist lock.

Missed the two cord part.

Now you're catching on.. . Then use the extra camper end to make an adapter by adding a male 15amp plug. Essentially a $30 adapter for next to nothing.
