It would help if you posted make and model of RV you're talking about.
I've never seen a power cord with lights on it.

I believe a red light means reverse polarity

Fonzie,

Is the a factory OEM cord?
I've never seen it as a standard item on FR products.

That's the same cord that came with my 2016 rockwood must be standard on new models

Our power cord has a (Red) light at the Trailer end attachment point! It is a Factory (30A) cord! Youroo!! Ours is a 2010 year.

The RED light alerts you that the cord is energized.


The light on mine is on the twist lock end.

Product Details:




Furrion's 30 Amp 125 volt RV cordset features the Faultsmart reverse polarity system to indicate continuity of power and incorrect wiring. The molded plug and connector are designed for ergonomic comfort with side grips for easy, user friendly connection and are manufactured from the highest quality marine grade cable designed safe disconnect for harsh environments. This cordset also features Furrion's unique Pullsmart handle design.


So, I guess it does.


$76.48 from Amazon.
