Electrical mess

Can anyone tell me why I have a 220 volt connector on my 120 volt power cord. The plug on my power cord plugs in to my home dryer outlet. Any clues???

I would not try it.. They mostly have a 30 amp plug witch is a little differant than a normal outlet but still only require 110 volts. It does look like it but I dont think it is wired to 220....SAM

Please do not get them mixed up. Here is a link to a post I made regarding different plugs and receptacles. http://www.airforums.com/forums/show...6&postcount=48

If you can, please post a picture of what you have.

Thanks,
Phil.

Have you actually tried this? without the trailer end plugged in.
If it fits then you have the incorrect recepticle in you house.

There's nothing wrong with your plug. Go to the hardware store and get an adapter for a 30 Amp to 15 Amp receptacle like this:

Find Electrical Adapter, 30 Amp To 15 Amp and other R-V Hardware at Aubuchon Hardware
