What is out there to protect a 50A 240V camper male cord cap?

I would can the one that came with the camper for a nice pin & sleeve unit, but that would negate usage in all the KOA's etc.

what are you guys installing?

thanx

Sorry: "Protect" in what context? Could you 'splain more? Prevent damage when not in use? How about one of those Hubbell yellow-plastic PlugOut clamsehll things?

Sparky — See http://www.hubbell-wiring.com/library/Section-U.pdf page 3 catalog no. HLD2

[I think I was in left field in my original reply to you.]

Maybe a better suggestion is page 3 catalog no. PAK55C: http://www.squared.com/us/products/...d3b85256c00006003a1/$FILE/1140CT9201.pdf

Another vendor is Midwest Electric.
