The OP was only looking for something for when the trailer is sitting in driveway storage. If they are like me, there is no 30A available, hence the need for an adapter.

Bob, I just always use the heavier cables and one of these adapters.

When we picked up in April, one of these adapters was included as a standard item by ETI. We did not ask for it, or pay extra for it. It was not part of the Starter Kit. So, No need to bring an extra.

I'd rather not expose my standard 30 amp cable but use a sacrificial 15 amp extension cord with the previous adapters. That way I have a back up hookup system with me just in case I "forget to bring the standard 30 amp cable" which has happened.

Oh cool. Fingers crossed we are as fortunate



But we won't need it 'till home so good to know the $15 option is decent.



May get one as an extra spare.

30 amp cord

When we used our Snoozy. It had a 25ft 30amp 10 Ga. cord attached to the front of the RV .With Escape it will be in the back of the camper plus we carry a 12 ga. 20 amp cord with adapters for 30 amp . With the Snoozy all electric we had to watch our electrical needs .shut off water heater or maybe the A/C for a while . When using the extra 20 amp cord .With 30 amps no problems with everything running .I can't wait for Nov to get our 21 Escape Jim
