I have a pole with a socket put in just for travel trailers and I noticed at the camping place that all the cords were 110 on one end and something larger on the other - none of them were 110 on both ends.
Do I have to start a new thread everytime I want to ask a question?
Your trailer originally came with a hard wired 110 volt AC 30 amp cable.
The plug is larger than a household plug, because it was a 30 amp plug.
A 30 amp to 15 amp adapter was used so that you could plug the trailer into a standard outlet.
You must use caution when using that adapter, since the AC alone draws all of that 15 amps, resulting in a melted adapter.
