    Thinking about this thread, I would have to make my number one recommendation be a right angle 50 amp "dog-bone" adapter for attaching your 50 amp power cord to your coach. I don't know why Grand Design does not use a right-angle power cord to reduce the stress placed on the power cord from gravity. This is one of the first accessories I purchased for our new Solitude.

    I agree completely. I got mine right away after seeing what was supplied by GD. In my opinion there is no excuse for NOT providing it on the cord to begin with.

    I agree, GD should supply Right Angle Power Cords.

    My current Momentum 376TH is our 4th trailer. And, after my last work trip which recently left me in the cold temps longer than I thought I would be..... I ended up buying several of these items..... and would highly recommend -

    Propane tank monitor mentioned in prior post - MUST HAVE and very easy to use, and reliable.
    Longer 50 amp extension - whether it be 10 or 15 more feet. Last site had meter way at back and my supplied cord was stretched to max. Would have been nice to have another extension.
    Lowe's is currently selling a Craftsman portable air compressor for the holidays - 6gal tank, 150psi, very portable and lightweight, great for hauling in the trailer - $99 ( I managed to find one with a free finish nailer, staple gun, and brad nailer included), but I have also seen some at $99 with just one nailer included.

    You should also get the 30 amp to 20 amp adapter. At our current site, the power pole was way in the back and on the curb side, fortunately, I had a heavy duty Construction type extenstion cord and both my 50 amp/30 amp and my 30 amp/20 amp adapters with me.

    Our coach ran just fine on 20 amps for a couple of nights until I could get my 30 amp extenstion cord from the house (we were camping 50 miles from home).

    PS: We are still camping for a month using only 30 amps in Florida.
