My BIL has a 2006 5th wheel that has the twist lock 30 amp connection for CG electric. My 83 Winnie has the two slant and ground, with no lock. Do most CG still support both? I'm changing out the end of my cord and making up a 10/3 extension. Now would be a good time for a change if needed. Any recommendations?

Thanks

Yes they still use the slant 30 amp plug. On that extension you are making. Nothing longer than 20-25 feet. Too much Voltage lost. If you are making longer, Go with 8/3 for long runs!!

I'm lost. I've gone to look for me. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Thanks Dan. I'm using a 25' section that came from a TT. Thanks for the heads up on length, also. I wanted to be smart about the connections since I had to purchase new.
