Got the 50 amp Smart Plug installed. I'm very happy with this plug. No more lock ring and twisting!

Sorry I didn't read your post correctly.
It's the plug and socket together. You use your existing cord.

What did you do to your camper today?

Today I recoated the wire shelves in the refrigerator. When we bought the RV some of the shelves had the power coating worn off and showing rust.
So I removed the shelves, wire brushed them to clean metal then sprayed with white FlexSeal.
It look good and should hold up well and now has a slight nonskid to them.Click image for larger version

Last trip a couple weeks ago got a puncture in a tire. Lionshead sent me a new one and finally got around to getting it mounted put on the TT.

Safe and happy travels.

Attachment 238080

For now I have to use my multimeter.
I have our PI EMS HW50C hardwired behind the power station as well. The display is near the entrance door.

I have the EMS set up to delay 216 seconds (factory option) prior to connecting power to camper. This gives e plenty of time to see what the power is from the pedestal before it is allowed into the camper.

Besides if the current is not in limits the EMS will not allow it in to the camper, so testing it at the pedestal seems a bit redundant.

Fixed the plumbing snafu from the factory. They plumbed the city water inlet to the hot water side of the camper. When on city water my hot/cold were switched.

At least it was a pretty easy fix.

Pantry

We installed roll out drawers in our pantry cabinet. Full extension, soft close hinges. Probably my favorite mod so far.
