Our 50 amp cord plug was pulling out of the plug and we decided to replace it before we had a problem. When removing it, I discovered the molded plug was sealed and did not really need to replace the plug. However, this plug replacement grips the cord tightly and I am no longer worried about it coming out of the plug.
As a replacement plug, both the male and female versions of this item are great. They are made of quality material and come with adequate instructions for use (I don't really need the instructions after working in a power plant for 30 years - but I reviewed what came with the item it was fine.)
This replacement plug took about 20 minutes to remove and install. The installation was very similar to other heavy-duty plugs used for ranges and welders. The wires to the previous plug fit exactly into the new plug with no additional trimming. All of the
strands fit easily into the new blade clamps. After the blades were seated, the cover held them firmly. It is much easier to install and remove from the outlet and is working very well in the home receptacle. I anticipate no problems in campground pedestals.
I purchased the Power Grip 50 Amp cord replacment, nstalltion was simple, and the
end works fine. But was I surprised whne the end will no longer pass through the port
in the floor of my coach, and I can't find a product any where to cut a larger whole in the
floor to allow the 3 1/2 plug to pass through
Overall the unit works. The problem is that the internal wire connectors are almost impossible to tighten due to the
screws being blocked by the other connectors. They are phillips /standard combo screws and would be much more
manageable if they were hex as well. The weight of the completed unit is too light and has no substance. I filled
mine on both halves with electricians putty (duct putty or monkey putty) a non conductive putty for sealing wire
penetrations. This added significant weight to the plug and made it feel like a more like the original solid core rubber
plug. This unfortunately this was the only option for my repair since I have a retractable 50 amp cord and did not
want to remove the entire motor and spool to add a completely new wire.
