120 electrical chord (2 males) HOUSTON

The 1969 Safari we just received has a 120 female electrical hook up. Where can I find an extension chord with 2 male connectors? We will be converting to 30 amp once we have an AC installed. Thank you.

By code you could don't buy such a thing and really would not wan to own one either.

Consider installing a 3 prong male grounded connection now. With a 2 wire system you run the risk of having a hot chassis and killing someone if you plug a 2 wire cord in backwards.

Welcome! Since you are going to have to redo the electrical connection eventually, you may as well do it now. At the risk of being called a heretic, consider going to a Smart Plug instead of the more common Marinco. I'm guessing that the total cost will be about the same and you will have a more solid connection at the trailer.
