Watch for bent pins in the socket. Since the blades of the fuse go in crooked, they spread the blades of the socket a bit to hold the fuse.
Long time use could allow the blades in the socket to take a permanent "set."
...
You can get the long blade fuses and bend the tabs to match the plug.

Another possible solution or addition:
I, too, am cautious about where I put my RV. Although I use solar charged batteries for LED markers where appropriate, reflective tape is another suggestion that requires no battery power. I put tape on my bumper corners and slideouts for added visibility.
SOLAS tape is extremely reflective, used on life-saving equipment such as jackets and life rafts, and is available in marine stores and the internet. It is a good choice for slideouts and is easy to see.
Typical reflective tape comes in many colors, although SOLAS tape is typically reflective white. Most tapes have a sticky back and adhere to a number of surfaces.
Just a thought.

Mike

The wire brushes that stick out scrub the blades of the male end of your cord.

You would have had to go to the online catalog link with the appropriate part number to order it. Your link is much better.
