I was going to change the plugs to get the two inlets and had the same questions.
Lew, what are the "better "alternatives if one wants to change these outlets so both sides can be used?

Depending on the location of the outlet, I often replace the RV style press-in type outlets with quality residential outlets. These work especially well with remodel boxes in cabinets. If you want to replace the originals that are mounted in the trailer's side walls, you will need a box extension, which you can find in any big box home center.

OK, so there is no difference between the " electrics" of the two outlets, just quality?

...as Lew notes, these "speedier" outlets leave much to be desired. I have replaced three of them on my new trailer, but for different reasons: a) the outdoor outlet has a plastic cover -- I prefer stainless steel, so when I replaced the cover, I replaced the outlet, b) I find it a major convenience to have USB outlets where I spend time -- so I replaced the two 120V outlets adjacent to either side of my sofa/recliner with 120V/USB outlets. I suppose the "speed wire" work OK, but it makes me uncomfortable....particularly when they also serve as a junction box for other circuits.
