CAn someone tell me if the West Marine Marinco power inlet is an easy simple fit? Do the screw holes line up?

Is this cord end available? If not, does any one know the manufacturer & part numbers for a replacement male & female plug combination that will fit?
What you are describing is typical for late 1950s trailers and is probably the same as Plowboy's setup.

The connector is not standard (and never was) and is no longer made. They are not available at electrical supply places. Occasionally, old stock comes up for sale -- I know a couple of them changed hands on the forum last year.

I believe that the Marinco connector is somewhat larger and does not fit the same hole.

Another alternative to consider is a 15a inlet, which are smaller, and are available through Vintage Trailer Supply among other sources. If you don't plan on installing an air conditioner or microwave then 15a is sufficient. This is a much cheaper alternative and uses a smaller and lighter cord.

Here's some pic's and info on our update to the Power Cord...

Our vintage (1978-rear bath) AS models were built with the shore power cord hard wired inside the rear bumper storage compartment...

I decided to install a new connector on the rear side skin - see the pics on post #44, and the list of parts I used on post #46 - I got most of my material from Amazon suppliers - prices were much better that going to a Marine parts supplier...

Check em' out here...
