This is what I found, it is a RV extension reducer. 50 amp to 15 amp And you have your money's worth,

For most RV's you are correct, but not all. This twist-lock plug is used on RVs that have completely removable shore power cords. The twist lock socket is on the outside of the RV, and you plug the twist-lock end of the shore power cable into it. The other end of the shore power cable would have the 50A plug we're all used to seeing.

This device plugs right into the socket to allow you to power the RV with a 15A extension cord. It's totally safe and very useful if you have one of these sockets.

So is a OP's 2000 Monaco Lapalma equipped with a detachable 50 amp power cord? I know it's 50 amp service, but does it have a twist lock receptacle? I'd still sell it at a marina!

Doesn't matter if the OP's cord is removable. It wouldn't be the same connector, since this connector is actually for 30amp service (even though it's "rated" for 50 amp). Oh, I suppose it could be 50 amp no-neutral (if such a thing exists), but that's still not right for an RV.

I'm pretty sure it's a marine 50A 125/240V adapter. The ground is on the side, not like a RV plug. You can look it up on Marinco's web site.

You got a deal, but not for your RV. Put it on eBay and make a few bucks.

Actually it will fit my voltage.

The silver color next to the 15 amp plug makes it a 50 amp 2 hot, neutral + ground.

Nuclear, how much would you want for it?

Any ideas???

I see that wrong answers to your question are now ahead at 8 to 4.
(BTW that is often the case because 5 out of 10 people who reply don't actualy know what they're talking about).

The adapter in your picture will fit any RV with a 50A Marinco, (or a 50A a Marinco style), electric inlet, like this: Marinco Easy Lock Inlet Standard 30 Amp 125/250 - $43.99

If you can use it on your RV you defiantly got a bargain..(I paid $70 for one 11 years ago).

The original picture is no longer displayed. It sure looked like a 50A marine socket. I recall seeing the side contacts for ground. Anyway, here's all you need to know for sure.

Naysayers please read the label and note the metal strip on the side of the white plastic plug in that photo....(that metal strip is the ground connector).

That photo should bring this discussion to an end, (but it won't).

I don't know why the experts would have doubted me I use one and it is what it is not what they think it is.

I have the same one. Leaves the heavy cord in storage.
Also have a 25ft similar adapter with a 30 amp RV male plug.
Also leaves the 50 amp cord in storage at CG 30 amp connection post.
