Twist lock outlets, how to connect

We have purchased a 3500W generator, in line with our "be ready for anything" ethos.

It has 2 20A 120V outlets and 2 30A 120 v outlets.

The 30 amp outlets are twistlock. My trailer's electrical cord is, like most people's, a 220V dryer and oven style connector, and we have an adaptor that goes on the end that lets it plug into 110v outlets.

So how do I connect from the 220V plug into the 120v twist lock outlet? I looked for an adaptor in the local Home depot, but couldn't find one.

Pageclot,
When I got my generator at Cabela's they had the twist lock to RV 30 amp connection adaptor so I guess I lucked out. I found this on Amazon which should work...

Amazon.com: Cordtec 1.5Ft 30A 125V Twist Lock plug to RV 30A 120V Connector…

This one looks pretty cples to the one I got when I got our generator...

just want to pipe in and say that its NOT a 220v plug...it just looks "similar" to one. It is a 30 amp 110v RV plug. You put 220v onto it, and bad things will happen.

(just in case anyone else that comes across this thread that doesn't clearly understand that.)
