Are you looking for a twist lock or a straight one?

Home Depot as already stated. Make sure of your connections,using a OHM meter for the cord and your house connections.
Always use the easy botton.
Bill.

Have not had luck at RV stores.. Lowes had 'em though, so did Home Depot

Connections.. if the wires are color coded, Green goes to the "ODD" pin (Round or "U" shaped)

White opposite the Green

Red and black (May be black and black, to the remaining two (Side) pins, don't matter which goes on the right (or left)


This assumes that the colors are done standard, Never assume that, As someone else said, use an ohmmeter to be sure.

I have looked at Home Depot, Lowes and Menards. They have plugs but no cord ends.

a female cord end is kind of rare

Get an outlet, a plastic box and a cover

Also some "Great Stuff" or some other good sealant

NOTE: 50 amp wires do not bend easy

Now, insert the cable in the box, wire up the outlet and mount it int the box, clamp down the cable, put the cover on and shoot theo box full of "Great Stuff" (well about 1/3 full, it expands) to seal out moisture,, or use other sealing method such as Coax Tape. or Goop or.. Well long list of sealers.

I Recommend a plastic box, not metal.

RV Upgrades has them. I just got one to make an extension cord out of a cable with a male plug and bare wires on the other end.

I've had several failures (burnout) of the female ends of my cords. Yes they were the 30 amp but I agree that getting the box and the recepticle from HD is a better deal.
