Coiling 50 amp cord Windsport 29M

Coiling and stowing the 50 amp cord is a real pain. Most of the time I can get by using my 30 amp cord which I use as an extention to the 50 amp if I need to. I would prefer using the 30 amp cord most of the time which would be easy to handle but need a reducer which I would plug in to the motorhome then reducing to 30 amp. Hope I made myself clear. Is there such a reducer out there? I do not recall seeing one.

Since the power cord plugs directly in to the coach and uses a 50 amp connection I'm afraid you're out of luck. You can buy just the 50 amp male connector and I suppose you could make an adapter, might be a lot of trouble though.

How do you use the 30 amp cord as an extension cord with a "reducer"?

The "reducer" is called a dogbone adapter but is usually made to convert the male end of your 50 amp cord to a 30 amp female RV receptacle. I suspect what you want has a 50 amp twist-lock to plug into the coach with a 30 Amp plug to plug into the 30 amp Extension Cord? I haven't seen a dogbone like that but anything can be made.


Actually, it seems like Amazon has everything now:
