After a little more searching, I found these.

One male and one female, and all you would have to do is join them together in some safe manner.

w7 and dzn - Yep, the extension cord is the way I went. Good to have along for those odd layouts anyway.

The issue is when encountering a small connection stand with recessed outlets. I have a Progressive Ind. 30 portable EMS. It has a laughably short cord from box-to-plug. At two recent sites I've had to "force" the plug into the outlet with my security cable to keep contact. If I had a short 30-to-30 dogbone (just like the 30-to-50 type) I could get the Progressive away from the outlet box itself and all would be golden.

That EMS has paid for itself on our last trip out to the Balloon Fiesta this Fall. It detected low voltage, a reversed circuit, and a bad ground condition. I like "clean" power to my refrigerator and AC if/when I can get it.

Yep, looked at those in the CW store in Albuquerque. Could be a solution.

I too, have the progressive 30 amp portable unit. Only had it this past season, so that's why I asked. I haven't run into the box issue. I do carry an extra 25', 30 Amp extension. I've needed it several times in the past to reach a post.

Ken does have a solution there. I've never seen a 30 to 30 dogbone either.

Exclamation One more short extension solution

Back to this earlier link:

Heavy Duty Power Adapters with Handles - Product - Camping World

Buy a 30 amp male to 50 amp female and a 50 amp male to a 30 amp female. Plug them into each other. Now you only have $29.48 invested and you have the 50 amp to 30 amp adapter if you ever need it.
