Actually, having traveled alone a good part of this summer, I have learned a TON since this post...
Until the International Rally, I had a 'old-style' 30 amp plug which was also refered to as an old residential dryer plug. It was not compatable with the current 30 amp outlets available at most campgrounds. I would have to use the 'old style' 30-to-15 amp adapter in order to get power. At International I had to go from my old 30 amp male to my old 30 amp female/15 amp male to a 15 amp female/30 amp male in order to plug into the 30 amp facilities available. Needless to say, this was not an ideal situation so I had a new 30 amp cord wired on at the Springfield rally by the Airstream techs in attendance. Now I have a modern 30 amp cord/plug.
Occasionally, I camp at locations that still require stepping down to 15 amp, which is no big deal. However, I found it quite entertaining that at the Antelope Rally in Medicine Bow, WY this last week...my old 30 amp plug would have worked in the old hook-ups they have there. But since I no longer have that cord (thankfully) I used the modern 30-to-15 amp adapter like everybody else. No problem...I don't have and you definately don't need A/C in that part of the country this time of year!
