30amp 120v male plug damaged

I just purchased a 1989 25 foot Excella ASirstream from my 91 year old dad and 87 year old mother who stopped airstreaming last year. I noticed that the 30 amp plug needsd replacing because of a melt down of the plug. Can anyone tell me what is the best plug to replace it with. Iwent to Home Depot and got a Levington and not impressed with the quality. Thanks. I meant 125 volt, sorry.

Hi John...Go to an RV Camper World, etc., there you will find the exact choice you want. I am not sure which plug your talking about.
"If it can't be reduced, reused, repaired, rebuilt, refurbished, refinished, resold, recycled or composted
then it should be restricted, redesigned or removed from production."

Since you live in Florida, you may also find what you need at marine supply stores, like West Marine. In fact, marine parts are often more durable (and expensive); because they are designed to be used under much more severe conditions (e.g., near saltwater).

Uh, Phoenix, the marine shore power cords are for a locking plug at the pedestal. Every campground I've been to uses straight-bladed plugs.

John, quality is indeed a problem with replacement plugs. You can look at the Camco ones which might be a little better (try

If you want a molded-on plug, you might just replace the whole inlet power cord. I'm not sure the molded-on are higher quality. The Levinton replacement plug may look clunky but it's probably as good as you will find at Camping Whirled.
