Daisy-Chain 30amp Cables

Happy Sunday Everybody! We're going to a campground this week with the hitching posts pretty far apart from the spots. I have got two 25-foot 30amp power cables that screw into the side of my TT and would like to hook them together to form a 50' cable. I want to be sure I can reach the post.

I don't really want to invest in a 50' cable if I don't have to....

Has anyone seen a connector I could get to daisy-chain two power cables together?
Help?

Ready available on Internet or any good RV store. Get an extension so you don't need any kind of connector.

I've got two twenty fives connected for those long distance park poles.
And a separate 25' er.


They are connected via 30 amp twist locks vs the normal 30 amp plug and receptacle.
They cannot be used in any other combination.

You can clearly see the camper end, the power pole end and the thirty amp twist locks connected and then un connected.

These cables only work as a set and cannot be used separately.

This will work with your current cord nothing else needed.

I would cut a camper end off of one of the cords with about 12" of wire left on it. Then hook up a female end to the long cord to use as an extension , and a 15amp male plug to hook to the short camper end to use as an adapter. This way you can use a regular extension cord to hook minimal power to you camper for battery charging/fridge/lights, and don't have to drag a big cord out.

This is what you should do. If you have two "camper" cables, and want to connect them together you are going to have to cut the 30 amp male plug off one of the cords and put this male plug on.

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.

Basically what I've done, no?
