I was talking about the old three prong model, since that was what I read into the post. The new standard is four conductor, a whole different matter. BTW, MY dryer plug is three wire. Then again, my house is the oldest one in the neighborhood, too.

Guess I missed that part. Was that because it was an "old" dryer?

Anyway, if you are handy, you can get everything you need to add a 30 amp, 110V breaker to your breaker panel, with an outlet box, a little conduit and a 30 amp RV style outlet at Home Depot. If you don't feel comfortable around high voltage, an electrician should be able to do this job for you in less than an hour, including coffee breaks.

You can find these adapters at almost any good hardware store-Tru Value or Ace. As noted before do not try and run your AC on this cord.

Good news

Well folks a great thing happened today. A friend of mine called and explained she has jury duty in our town next month and wanted to know if she and her husband could stay with us, her husband is a electrician worked out great he is going to run the plug for us. In return he asked for a good grilled steak that night what a deal.
