Yes, a good 10-gauge cord to a dedicated 20 amp circuit. We start to cool down the coach to 85-90 (it's 110+) with the AC and Frig running. No issues for years using the puck style adapter with our 5th and again now with the RV. Now we fire up the gen on the road to complete the cool down.

Ive never seen a 10 Gauge extension cord except for a 30 amp RV 25 foot extensions. I always have one just in case. You still have to use an 15 amp adapter however. Having a voltmeter monitor will always tell you the truth about your connections.

eBay and Amazon carry many options as do most large hardware stores

I use a 50 foot for the Branson location

RV store as you noted

I bought a 100 foot-long one at my local Home Depot...
I figured that for as far as we stretch our use of electrical stuff across the back yard: we might as well "over-engineer" our approach...

Update - and kudos -
First, we want to thank everyone for the kind, informative and useful information. Since the Forum platform seems to think I've already "thanked" many of you too many times to do it again, I'll do it here - you know who you are!

Additional kudos - to Amazon, believe it or not. Found a highly-rated 30/15 adapter for a good price, and pulled the trigger on the order. It sat in my storage for a week before I pulled it out to use - and found the 30f connector was wrong layout (note to self - attention to detail!). Went online to process a return and order the right one - no issues with that process.



Amazon not only credited my card almost immediately, but due to the value of the item - told me not to bother with return! (So, I have something in my road stash to "pay it forward" down the line). Replacement arrived today, and batteries are currently topping off on shore power.
