50 Amp Extension Cord

I have a 50 amp electrical cord that came off a TT. On one end it has the twist lock female receptacle and I need to use this cord to plug my MH (50 amp) into so I can utilize as an extension cord. Does anyone out there know where I can purchase an adapter for this? Simular to the dog bone adapters. I would rather not have to cut the end off the cable and install the regular 50 amp female receptacle on it.
I have googled this on the internet, called a few RV supply stores, and Camping World.

You will have to make an adapter; as there is not enough demand for what you want, for a manufacturer to make them. You will need trailer side connector, short piece of cable and a 50 amp 120/240 volt 4 wire receptacle. I would use a recessed range receptacle in a weather proof box if I were going this route. More than likely, if I did not want to cut off the connector I would just buy an extension cord.

Thanks RV Wizard, this is the same information I have been receiving - none avaliable. I was hoping someone here may have seen one somewhere. Looks like my best option will be to cut the cord and install a 50 amp female connection. I can get one from Progerssive Industries at a reasonable price.

If that is a Marinco female plug you do not have to cut the cord to remove it. On the face are 2 small screws back them out and you should be able to push the body of the plug out of the housing by holding the housing and pushing on the cord. The wires are held into the plug by screws. Lowe's also has the plugs.

I would suggest cutting the cord in half and making 2 extension cords. With the weight of the 50 amp cord it's easier to use a short extension cord if that's all you need. In fact I did much the same as you are doing. I got a 50 amp cord from a scrap TT, then cut 1 - 5' and 2 - 10' sections and made 3 cords.

Check Ebay for cord end twist lock Receptacle and then the 50A RV blade male. The twist locks are standard and made by several electrical suppliers. This link shows the various configurations. It is probably a L14-50, this may be stamped in your plug or on the trailer inlet. NEMA Plug & Receptacle Configurations Reference Chart (Locking)

Thanks for the information, With all this information I will be able to find something.
I will need to look at the cord closer when I get home, the end appeared to be molded on, if not it will be easier to change the end and still have the option to put it back to the original state if ever required.
