Smartplug 50 AMP Combo Kit

Hopefully, this pic will answer your questions about the smartplug and why it is better than our twist-lock system currently used. These features apply to both the 30 amp and 50 amp Smartplug systems.

Thanks...makes you wonder why the RV industry is dragging their feet converting to this system. I have seen several Class B and trailer manufacturers use this system but none in the Class A line.
