electrical plug

Could someone tell me what a typical 30 amp trailer park electrical hook looks like. I've seen turnlocks and plugs with a ground an two angled prongs. I have a 1963 Kenskill with no wiring. I also see 30/50 amp plugs. It looks like the receptacle at the trailer has to be male.

I'm no expert on vintage trailers but a typical CG 30 amp hook up is the two angled prongs with a ground... no twist lock.

Good luck...

The 30A cable end you need looks like this

it's available at most big box home improvement stores. Another option might be to buy a 30A extension cord from the RV section at Walmart, then you could just cut off the female end and wire it up to your trailer.

NEMA connector - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Click the link and scroll down to the "TT-30" connector

From the web page:
NEMA TT–30 (TT stands for Travel Trailer) is a 30 A, 125 V recreational vehicle standard (hot-neutral-ground) which may also be known as RV 30.

Jus for clarity, the TT-30 also looks like a 30 A dryer plug. In fact the plugs are identical, it the way they are wired. The TT-30 is wired as a 30 A 120 V circuit, the dryer plug is 30 A 240V.

Don't every plug a 30 A RV plug into a dryer outlet, unless you want to replace all of the appliances and electronics.

Is there a way to hook the RV to your home current other than hooking up a 30 amp plug?
