The power outlet has been done in a number of configurations over the years.

My '53 Flying Cloud had an outlet on the rear just above the bumper on the streetside that allowed a power cord to run through it. As the PO had changed it out to a piece of Romex with a standard three-prong connector on it, I changed it to an "outdoor" three prong wall plug that a standard 15A extension cord would fit.

My '57 Overlander had a similar setup to the Flying Cloud, but it actually had the "outdoor" outlet already installed from the factory.

My '61 Bambi had the power cord and electrical box on the street side under the sink unit; accessed through the trunk opening.

My '70 Safari Special 23' had the power cord accessed through the box formed by the bumper which also doubled as sewer hose storage.

My '85 motorhome had the cord in it's own compartment on a spring-loaded reel behind the tag axle on the street side.

My '94 34' tri-axle has the cord in it's own compartment on a manual slide-out strorage tray on the street side (identical to the setup on john hd's '92).

Sorry John, thought it was your trailer.

That would be N.O.S. (new old stock). The NOS Bargman power inlets I located are the MALE end that mount into the trailer skin. I will fabricate a new 30 amp shore power cord from a stock park cord available at my RV dealer and installing Markdoane's female end.

I understood that the ones's you located are the male ends that are attatched to the trailer. We have two of those on ours now and will have the NOS ones from you to change those out. The female end that Markdoane sent you is the same as the one that we finally hunted down. It sounds like what I am planning is basically the same...using the new style 30 amp cord and replacing the end that connects to trailer with the old style. Just wanted to run that by you and see if that was what you planned to do as well.
Thanks, Lyn

I know this is a really old post, but you had (have??) the exact thing I need - the female plug for my '57 Flying Cloud. You don't still have it kicking around, do you?

Unfortunately, up until Nov. 9/'18 I did still have 2-3 of them- however I lost them and 3 vintage AS's in the massive Woolsey Wildfire that swept through our ranch in Malibu. We escaped in our 2016 Int. Signature 25.
I had hoped the one of the two on the '57 FC was serviceable and I could salvage it for you- but they were both toasted as well.
Try calling Steve at Vintage Trailer Supply and see if he has any suggestions. Otherwise you're stuck with a modern conversion.
