Mine arrived today. Took it out of the box, and it is well made, just like the 50 amp snake cable head. Took it out to the RV, slipped it in, turned to lock and tightened the collar - perfect! Battery is charging and all is working well. Highly recommend this to others.

Good deal.

I can't figure out why no one just puts in a stand alone battery charger and plugs it into the house 110, just like charging a boat battery or batteries??? Forget the converter, and it won't matter if the disco switch is on or off.

??

Like this one.......this is what I have for my boat. There are 2, 3, and 4 'bank' models.

This works good on motorcycle batteries.

1.5 Amp Three Stage Onboard Battery Charger/Maintainer Yes, it's Harbor Fright but it works.

I carry a 50 amp to 30 amp and 30 amp to 15 amp pigtails. That way if I need to plug in to 30 amp I have it and if I need to go to 15 amp just use the two dog bones.

Yep, I think we all have those. This adapter allows us to use a 15amp extension cord instead of wrestling with the heavy 50amp cord when we just want to charge batteries or have lights.
