Eliminating the Locking marine style 50a plug on Nat RV Dolphin??

Our National RV Dolphin has a 50a locking style marine type plug to attach it to shore power. ...
My tiffin has all connections located in one bay which is much much much easier to deal with.

I was debating whether I will attempt to remove the locking plug and hard wire that end permanently ... I am not sure whats involved yet as I have not yet removed the plastic access panel in the bay below the plug connection.

My question here is, has anyone done this? Looking for input from those that have been there done that

So you have two coaches (Dolphin, Allegro)?

I did it the other way 'round. I converted a "mousehole" to a Marinco "Park Power" connector on the exterior of our former Class C coach. It gave me space inside the coach (where the cable was stored) so I could install the Progressive Industries EMS there. I also wanted to eliminate a potential location for vermin (mostly mice) to enter the coach.

I found it easy to deal with the cord- but it was a 30A, not a 50A, so lighter for its 25-foot length.

Sure you can,

After you've made sure you have no power in the work area, just open the access panel on you transfer switch, look at how much exposed wire you will need to make it a neat connection from your cord, remove the female plug and square up by trimming the wire ends if needed.

After disconnecting the locking plug box you now have, connect the wires of your cord directly in its place following the same wire color pattern.

Be sure to plan out your storage and note how the hard wired power cord will be secured in a way as to not have tension/pulling movement on it while in use.

Be sure to tighten the lugs properly where you make your connections, over looking that point will ruin all your hard work in time.

Now you can put that plug in box up for sale.
