50 amp power cord alternative

For those of you tired of wrestling the snake of a 50 amp cord out to plug 110 ac in to charge batteries, here is an alternative you may not be aware of. It is a 50 amp to 15 amp plug, made by Camco, sold by Amazon that solves wrestling the power cord problem. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Priced at $29.99, this is a lot cheaper than the RV supply stores asking $80 plus for 50 amp to 15 amp pigtails. Mine is on order and is shipped out of Los Angeles.

Thank you so much! Perfect! Just ordered mine. Excellent find. Yep, I agree that monster cord is a pita just to plug into the house 15amp. Thanks again😁

FYI...I changed my solar input, to a Bullet SAE receptacle, so I can plug in a Battery Tender etc.

I like running my battery minder to keep my battery charged vs. the converter. More electrically efficient while using the battery disconnect switch...also saves the converter.

A dog bone, yes. But not the type of adapter we are talking about.

Cavie - if these exist for the price you said, I'd love to know where as even the RV Accessories, 2016 catalog does not show this plug. I think you may be talking about a doggone type, as said earlier. If I am wrong, point me in the right direction since I always like saving money!

It is interesting that the last picture on the link to amazon shows a a 50 amp to 30 amp adapter, but the other pics look like 50 to 15. It does describe the correct adapter. Just my OCD kicking in...
