Power cord mods

I'm looking to not havering to use my 50 amp power cord. I'll be mostly boon-docking and no need for 50 amps. I'm looking to find an adapter that is 50 AMP 90 Degree Locking Female or 50 amp straight locking female that would go where the conventional power cord would and knock that down to a 20 amp Standard male that I can just plug to an extension cord to plug into my generator on the days my solar is not enough or my inverter to power the electric outlets in my rig.

I do not have one but is this what you are looking for? I did a google search and this one came up along with one with a longer power cord.

That's it. I looked though their page and Camco as well and did not see one. If it was a 90 degree it would be exactly what I dreamed of. This will do perfectly. Thanks.

I use the conntek...use it with a reg extension whrn I have my trailer in storage...depending on how long your extension cord is u will see a pretty significant voltage drop if u dont use a thick gauge extension....

If I am boon-docking, it would only be 20 foot max. To reach the generator if need be and to plug into the inverter. Thanks guys.

I wanted to use a shorter cord, but once parked it was 30+ foot to the power plug from my trailer plug. Oh well...live n learn! Lol...in any case adapter works fine... I have never seen a right angle marinco style plug...so your prib stuck with a straigt one ...

If you guys are worried about line loss you can always use a thicker gauge extension cord to mount on the end of that adapter. Here's a 10 gauge I've used in the past...

10 gauge extension cord

I haven't used that adapter, but the mfg. says it's already using 10 gauge. Should work well.
