We have a very standard 50 amp shore power cord with the blades in the plug configured at a right angle to the cord.. Almost inevitably, there is a flange of some sort on the breaker box right below the receptacle. The flange is a direct interference and does not allow the plug to enter the receptacle fully. I have thought it could be good to have some kind of extension but then I would be plugging into a plug which doesn't seem a good thing and I haven't seen such an extension anyway. I have on occasion when the flange is a straight plastic edge deployed the nippers to cut out a small section so it doesn't interfere but metal boxes are more common. Does anyone have a solution for this matter, or am I the only one who doesn't like it that my plug rarely can fully enter the receptacle?
