50 amp shore power cord damage

so,,, today i did the brilliant tactic of moving the AS 10 ft while the cord was hooked to trailer. the weight of the 50 amp cord pretty much stripped the connection out of the cord. no damage to the threaded lock ring though.
(no damage on trailer side)
my question to anyone out there is: Are there replacement end connectors available instead of having to buy a new cord?

Thanks ahead of time.

Welcome to the forum! Sorry for the circumstances.

Is this the plug you are referring to?

http://www.furrion.com/store/energy/...ack-p-979.html

Amazon carries Furrion parts too, for instance:

https://www.amazon.com/Furrion-F50ML...Furrion+F50MLP

Good luck!

Hi

It's not a crazy weird connector. Any good electrical supply outfit should be able to sell you one off the shelf. Take in the remains of what you have so you get the right part.

That is about as close as you can get to a 'cheap OOPS' with an Airstream... Well done, Cap!

You will need both the electrical plug and a weatherproof boot with locking nut

See the Marinco page for these items

I have a 50amp cord that I don't need any more since I converted mine to a 30amp smart cable. (I had the second air conditioner removed when I had Lewster build me a solar system).

Heavy as the dickens - which is why I am so glad to be back to the 30amp world - but may make it expensive to ship..

Let me know if you want to try to work a deal.

Pat
