Old cord (looks like this one): 30AMP 3 Wire recreational vechile cord/RV cord/Small Plug RV Marine, View Small Plug RV Marine, Product Details from Jiande Sansen Electrical Appliance Co., Ltd. on Alibaba.com

New cord:Amazon.com : Conntek 14353 RV Power Cord 42-Foot RV 30 Amp Male Plug To 30 Amp Locking Female Connctor : Generator Cord Sets And Plugs : Patio, Lawn & Garden

The new one locks a whole lot better and you can tell right away that there isn't the pulling on the connector with the weight of the plug and wire. As stated before I may purchase a right angle adapter when the price comes down.
Nice! Have you figured out a way to keep it from growing legs?

Bob

I have thought of theft prevention and an alarm detecting removal or loss of power might be easier.

I need to purchase another one but thought I would use another lock like what's on my surge protector. It's too bad we always have to worry about things growing legs, I remember a time when we never locked the doors on the house and left the keys in the truck 24/7.

Kayak,

You are correct, too bad we have to think about these things. After I had two brand new 6v batteries "lifted" a couple of years ago, I started locking everything, batteries, spare tire, propane tanks, Roto-Chocks. Now I'm thinking about locking my power cable!

Next it will be the stinky hose that grows legs.

Can you clarify this for me?

Thanks!

I have the same trailer, it starts in the same place of course and ends in the same place. If you stick your head up in the access panel at the front of the trailer underbelly and look towards the back you will see the power wire on the right side. Let me know if you have the same thing. It is romex and 30 amp rated on mine.
