    Does anyone make an adapter cord longer than a foot?

    Anyone know where I can find a 30A twistlock to 15A male power cord about 15 feet long? I've been hunting and coming up with nothing but foot-long adapter cords.

    What the heck, I did search Amazon for a bit and didn't come up with that, and I pretty much searched on those same terms. Now I feel dumb ;-). Thanks!

    Why not use your 30 amp full length cord with the 15 adapter at the end"

    Right now what I'm doing is using the full length 30A cord, a 10 foot 15A cord, and the adapter in the middle. So I can put it under the trailer to keep it out of the rain. The plug on the side of my house is weatherproof, which is why I don't just put the adapter there.

    Go to Electrical supply and make your own adapter.

    There's more than one way to meet that challenge, including a number of palm-sized adapters for under $15 that may be able to adapt the end of the cable you already have - way cheaper than buying a new cable.

    Sorry if I'm misunderstanding your problem.

    That's basically what I do now. It works fine, it's basically what I did on the last trailer, but that trailer had a permanently attached cord. With the twistlock on this rig, I have to take out the entire cable and lay it under the trailer, and I'd rather just leave it stored away for remote usage and get a semi-permanent cable for home. And if I'm going to do that, I figure I'd rather have a cord that didn't need adapters. The cord FT4NOW posted should work well, it's just right length to reach the house, and not terribly expensive.
