Thanks for your information at the recent RV show. Your seminars were very informative and those tire pressure requirements were new to me. Also you mentioned that the dog bone adapter is a not a good idea. I’ve used them for years with no problem. How can I plug my 50-amp trailer to the 30-amp post at the campground without one? What do you know that I don’t? —Thomas S.
Thanks for coming to the seminars, Thomas! Glad to hear you liked them! About those dog bone adapters … only use them if you absolutely have to. The biggest concern is that one or more safety devices are bypassed when using them. Plus more connections in the chain gives moisture intrusion and electrical corrosion a leg up. But if all you have available is a 30-amp receptacle, unfortunately you’ve got to use one.
Try to always plug in to the correct receptacle so you can have full operation of all your components and circuit protection. Here’s an industry expert’s similar remarks about those dog bone, reducing electrical adapters. Check out this short video.
