Power Inlet Adapter plates

I am wanting to change out my mouse hole power cord for a locking 30 amp twist lock power inlet. So far I have not found one that is large enough to cover the old mouse hole when I remove it. Any suggestions?

I found ParkPower by Marinco 30ARVKIT 30 Amp, 125V RV Conversion Kit

But I dont need all of the parts, just the Power Inlet and the mounting rings. I have been searching, but can not figure out where to buy just the mounting rings. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I bought my power inlet from West Marine, and used a 4x4 pvc jbox cover, drilled and painted to match the TT. But then I'm an electrician, so I have that stuff on hand.

I've actually got that kit that you're looking at I just haven't gathered enough ambition yet to install it.

I think it would help to know more about your "mouse hole". Is it just a little hole that your cord comes out of? Or is it a normal plastic door that has a small hole for the cord to come out of and a swinging cover that covers the little hole in the door when the cord is stowed? And are you trying to remove the door and replace it with the new plug?

Bob beat me to it by a couple of minutes.
Check out this:

It's not truly a locking flanged inlet, the ground has a 90* shoulder on it but what holds the cord in place is a threaded ring that screws onto the outside of the flanged inlet. You'll need to figure out a box for it to go into, or screw this directly to the side of your trailer. You'll need to get one of these, too:

I made one for a Thor with a round mouse hole. Rather, I got one of the shops at work (now I'm retired however) to punch it out on a computer controlled punch machine.

Not that hard to do by hand however, piece of aluminum about .050 thick or so , and sabre saw with a hacksaw blade and some files.
