The autoformer kit is what I used about four years ago. It has worked perfectly since. When I go to trade in this motorhome, I will just unplug the surge guard and plug the two plugs together.

Hey guys you can get the same cord and plugs at Home Depot or Lowes.... It's nothing more the an Electric Range cord. I bought one to make a 50 amp converter box for my stick welder. Now I can use my 50 amp extension cord from my RV for my stick welder in the shop. I saved adding an extra 50 amp service that the welder uses (circuit breaker, wire, conduit, outlet).

If my memory serves me correctly...

14-50P and 14-50R

Here is a photo of my outside RV box. It comes with circuit breakers, a 110v/20amp plug in and a 250v/50amp plug in.


I will get some photos of my pig tag I made up along with the RV extension cord and the the range cord. All - same-same.

You are correct.

Ok here are the photos..
MY RV 50 amp receptacle.... compare the range plug to the RV receptacle.


Range cord - welder pigtail.
Notes:
Range cord is 2 hot wires, 1 neutral, 1 ground.
Welder plug is 2 hot wires, 1 neutral, no ground.
Hot wires 8 awg, neutral/ground 10 awg. This may not be heavy enough for certain RV applications.
