Electric Question for Fleetwood MH

Hi! I am new to all this and am in possession of an abandoned 1991 Fleetwood Bounder MH. I am trying to see if the electric system is working but I do not have the proper extension cord to plug in because the Fleetwood has a recessed and covered 3 prong connection on the drivers side. It says "30 amp 125V" and has 3 prongs in a triangular shape. Where can I buy a cord to plug this baby in and how do I describe it to a dealer? What is it called, I guess I am asking? Thanks all.

I am thinking that you have a male plug and need an extension. If so it is called a 30 amp extension cord. Just to check it out I would buy a 30 amp adapter which would change to a three prong normal plug to plug a regular extension cord into it.

You need to look for a 30 amp extension cord, plus a "dogbone" connector to go from 30 amps to 15 amps, so you can plug this into a conventional house outlet. Both of these are available at Walmart, or any RV store, or online on Amazon (plus a million other sites)

I am surprised the 30 amp power cord is not hard-wired into your rig.

Thanks everyone for the tips on electric cord adaptors for my Fleetwood MH. I already ordered one from Amazon!
