50 amp cord

Recommended Posts

Marinco is the common one. You don't state why you need a new cord. They don't usually wear out. Ends can be replaced if they are no longer serviceable. If you simply lost yours you will need to ascertain what type of connection is on the coach and duplicate that. A little more info would help.

post-47573-0-26455700-1430266943_thumb.jpg jd, you state "I need a new 50 amp cord for my National Sea Breeze. Do all 50 amp cords have the same coach connector or are there many types?"

 

When you say "coach connector" do you mean your cord is separate (NOT hard wired to RV) and your RV has what I call a "Power Inlet"???

 

If so, does the RV end look like this picture????

 

That RV Female cord end is a Marinco or Hubbell 50 Amp 3 Pole 4 Wire Grounding locking type with a weatherproof boot.

 

The Male Plug that fits into the parks 50 amp Power Pedestal is a NEMA 14-50P straight blade (non locking) 3 Pole 4 Wire Grounding Plug.

 

The typical cords are 4 stranded copper conductors, three 6 Gauge (L1, L2 & Neutral) and one 8 Gauge (Ground)

 

If you have a cord you could purchase and install these two ends or whichever one you need.

 

BUT THE RV END HAS TO OBVIOUSLY FIT YOUR RV POWER INLET which may or may not be the Marinco or Hubbell many use, I'm not there so I just cant say for sure.

 

I would look at your RV end (Power Inlet) for part numbers or NEMA classifications and all you have to do is match it which a local electrical supply house or an RV shop should be able to provide.

 

Here are a couple on Flea Bay:

Best I have to offer not knowing what you actually have.

I would recommend making your own supply cord using 6/4 SOOW cord. It is soooo much more flexible than most off the shelf power cords that I have seen. I made one for myself and when my camping friends saw it most of them wanted one also. I have found that a 35 foot cord works best for me. JMO. Charlie

Hi Charlie,

 

Where would you go to find this cord (6/4 SOOW) ?

 

Thanks,

Al

In our town we have at least two electrical contractor supply stores. I doubt they stock 4 conductor 6 gauge cord and they might have to order it and perhaps minimum of 50 or even 100 foot rolls and I bet its very expensive. You might just try E Bay or Amazon etc for common 25 and 35 and 50 foot RV 50 amp cords maybe??? much cheaper then if you have to buy the cord separately then both (or whichever ends you need) the plug and receptacle ends. I think some of those use three No 6 (L1, L2, Neutral) and a No 8 for the Equipment Grounding Conductor. Our Local Lowes has wire by the foot but I bet they don't stock 6/4 rubber cord. As previously mentioned, you just have to match the RV end with whichever Power Inlet you have.
