30A Locking to 50A (125/250V) Locking Pigtail Adapter Customer Questions and Answers

Question

Our boat uses 30 amp, we had visited a marina that only had one working dock with 30amp power, all the other docks only had 50 amp dock power working. Is this the Adapter I need to take my 30amp boat power cord to 50amp dockside power? I assume this pigtail converts the power from 50 to 30 so that we don't ruin our boats 30amp power systems?

This pigtail adapter works just fine for my 30 amp boat. I use it all the time when cruising and find that the 50 amp 125/250 systems are becoming the standard.

Yes, the 30A to 50A adapter is exactly what you need for this. It allows you to plug in your 30A cord to a 50A (125v/250v) shore power outlet with no problem. We use ours often whenever we stay at a marina (or slip) with only a 50A outlets available. It's almost a necessity these days if you cruise a lot as many marinas have many more 50A outlets than 30's. There is also a similar adapter (which is more expensive) that allows you to plug in TWO 30A cords from a single 50A outlet, it's called a 2-30A to 50A Y-Adapter, but you don't need that one unless you have two 30A cords.
