Amateur hour. Forgot electrical cord.

I forgot the electrical cable that plugs into the airstream. Do most rv dealers carry that plug or am I s.o.l? Is there a bypass to just plug in a 110 v cable?

I don't know about RV dealers, but the end that plugs into the Airstream is a standard NEMA L5-30. This plug will not have the locking ring but is the correct connector. I just brought one at an electric supply house and put it on the end of a standard extension cord to plug into my generator so I don't have to get out the heavy Airstream cord to use it. If you are near a good electrical supply you might try that.

An RV dealer should have one.
Heavy Duty 30-amp 10/3 STW Cord, 25

To plug it into a normal outlet.

adaptor

Walmart usually has the adaptor from 3 prong 30 amp to a regular 3 prong 110 volt.

I got a three prong but it doesn't fit because the third prong isn't cylindrical.

You're right Rick, I thought that cord had the L5-30 end.
