Electrical Connector/Adaptor

Can anyone tell me where to find an electrical connector for the outside of the trailer? When we picked up our A122BH, the electrical was plugged in with a yellow extension/adaptor to a regular extension cord. We would like one of those yellow adaptors because we store the trailer right up against the fence on that side and the black cord that came with the trailer sticks out FAR. I've bought two different yellow adaptors and neither were right. Can anyone tell me exactly what I need to get? Thanks for any help you can provide.

If I understand this correct, you are wanting an adapter that plugs into your camper's inlet directly, and then immediately converts the 30 amp twist lock connection to where you can plug in a regular 15 amp extension cord....thus bypassing the campers 30 amp detachable power cord completely?

Is this correct or is it something else? If so, then maybe this:

i'm also not sure what you're asking but if you're asking to adapt a 30 amp RV plug to a home-type 15 amp outlet, just get a 30 to 15 amp adapter.
Walmart carries them along with hardware stores, RV parts/dealers and CW.
or from the internet vendors.

Just like the one wmtire posted but....
didn't stick out like our black cord and the one posted,
about 12-18 inches that would plug to a regular extension cord, (probably with that black adaptor plug)
but hung directly down rather than sticking out.

Ok, I think I understand. It did an immediate "L" downwards as soon as it came out of the trailer inlet.

Maybe something like this, then use a 15 amp adapter at the end of it. You could probably cut the hand grips off to give you even more room towards the fence.

This Hubbell adapter might work as well - can't tell with 100% certainty. Google that part, though, as I think you can finder it cheaper than this listing.

I could not find a part for what you need on Furrion's web site. You might give it a look though.

RV Camp Power - Electrical


Is there any way you can mod the fence to give you the room you need? Short of that, a change of the entire power inlet to one with a standard RV plug might suit your needs.

Yes, an L and it didn't have the screw ring or the handle, it just plugged right in.

Can't modify fence, it is property line with neighbor's narrow side yard. And changing the entire power inlet seems a bit extreme when I know there is something out there that will work for me.

I've found 30 to 15 amp pigtails, but they didn't have the right plug configuration. They had round pins and wouldn't fit with that locking pin we have.

I don't even need it to be 30 to 15 amp adapter as I have that black block that does that trick.

Guess I'll just have to keep trying to get past the receptionist to the techs at the dealer to learn what they used and where I can get one....

Is the Camco 55522 18" 30 AMP Standard Male / 30 AMP 90 Degree Locking Female PowerGrip Adapter that wmtire suggested not what you are looking for? You can cut the handle off and the screw on ring shouldn't bother you and if it does, cut it off also.
