Video Transcript for Epicord 30 Amp Twist Lock Power Inlet Installation - 2018 Nissan NV 2500

Shane: Hi. I'm Shane with etrailer.com. Today we're going to be taking a look at and I'm going to walk you through the installation on the Epicord 30 Amp Twist Lock Power Inlet on our 2013 Nissan NV 2500.Now, this is going to be great for getting your vehicle 30 amps of power or 125 volts. Like a lot of people are doing nowadays, they're taking vans like this then they're turning them into their own camper, so they can design them the way they want. A plug like this is going to allow you to run your lighting, run your refrigerator, run your air conditioner if you add one one, which generators, a lot of generators aren't going to be able to do. Or maybe you're like our customer here and they're starting a mobile grooming company for animals, or for dogs.

This is going to allow them to run their water pumps and their vacuum.Our plug's going to have a nice cover that's going to help protect all of our connections from any dirt and debris. It's going to have a seal right inside it. It's actually just like a piece of foam. It seals right around this edge. It's going to help keep any moisture or anything like that from getting in.

You can hear it kind of snaps into place, so it stays closed when you're not using it.It's going to work with your standard three-prong plug, RV plug, that has the twist cap or twist ring on it. You're going to stick it on, twist it, and then you turn the ring and it actually locks that plug into place.A great addition to this or the plug itself would be the Mighty Cord 90-Degree RV Power Cord Adapter. It's going to be 30 amp female side on one side that's going to hook in here and it's going to come down 90 degrees, so you're not putting pressure down on this edge. Then on the other end, you can hook just a regular plug into it and hook it into your house wall outlet. Maybe you have a small refrigerator or something inside that you want to keep cool or cool it off overnight, you have it parked in your driveway, you hook it up, add that adapter on, and hook that cord up to your wall outlet at home, you can have your refrigerator running all night long.Now I'm going to go over some of the features and show you how to get it installed.

First thing you're going to do is determine where you're going to put it. You can see our customer wants it right in this area. Before we start drilling it or cutting the hole in the side of the vehicle, we need to check on the inside to make sure we're not going to be hitting any wiring or anything like that.Our customer already has a panel up here, so what I did is I pulled it back and there's a large opening there. They had filled it with insulation, so what I did is I pulled the insulation out. Now, I know I'm clear.

I'm going to go ahead and drill my hole in the outside and then I'll come in here and I'll drill a small hole just big enough that I can fit my wiring in that's going to go to the plug.The 2-7/8 hole saw bit is not a common one, so you are probably going to have to special order it. There is not a lot of stores that are going to carry it. Now we're going to start drilling our hole. I'm actually going to move it up just a little bit, right at about the corner where they have it marked here.I'm going to take a file. I'm going to knock down all the burrs. Then you can either spray it with maybe clear coat or something. You just want to make sure you cover that bare metal. I'm actually going to use a paint marker. This is all going to be covered up by the plug, so we're not going to see any of it. Just want to make sure if by chance any water or anything like that gets in there, it just keeps it from corroding.Next thing I'm going to do is I need to mark out four of my screw holes. The directions tell you to use #8 stainless steel screws. What I'm going to do is I'm actually going to use a #8 stainless steel bolt, a pan head bolt, and a lock washer and nut on the back side. Now, all we're doing is installing the plug.If you are adding the wiring onto it now, what you want to do is you want to pull your wiring through the hole. You're going to take this cap off. You're going to feed . You're actually going to put your cap, this cap here, on your wiring, feed your wiring through here. It's going to come out here, and then you're going to wire it to the back of your plug. You're going to take this cap. You'll tighten this down, and that'll lock your wires in place. Then you can bolt it to the side wall of the vehicle.Because my customer has not ran any of their wiring yet, they're going to wire it their self, and we're only putting the plug on for them, we're going to go ahead and mark our holes, drill our holes, and put the nut and the bolt in. 1/8" drill bit. Now your nuts and bolts, or your screws, actually, do not come with the plug, so this is something you will have to pick up.Now, I'll pull this back off. Again, I'm going to take my paint marker and cover up that bare metal. Again, we're not wiring our plug, we're just pre-installing the plug for now. It's a good idea, if you have your wiring ran, to go ahead and install it onto the plug before putting your plug or mounting your plug to the wall, because that plug has to be off, the twist lock has to be off, in order to get your wiring through, and it's all on the outside.Again, I'm Shane with etrailer.com. I hope this video has helped you, whether you're still deciding on the plug or installing it on your 2018 Nissan NV 2500.

A year after installing my Epicord 30 Amp Twist Lock Power Inlet, I would recommend it for anyone with a light-duty needs. It works just fine and is sturdy enough, but a bit difficult to line the plug pins up when plugging in at night. The pins tend to bend just enough to keep things from lining up. Still, for the price it's tough to beat the function. 727605

Ask the Experts about this Epicord RV Power Inlets

  • Convert Aliner Trailer Electric Cable Hatch to 30 Amp Twist Lock Power Inlet
    The Epicord 30 Amp Twist Lock Power Inlet - White # 277-000137 you asked from is 3-1/4 inches wide at the outside edge so it is not compatible with your 3.5 inch hole. The Furrion 30 Amp Power Inlet - White - LED # 431861 is 3-1/2 inches by 3-1/2 inches square. My recommendation for you is the Furrion Replacement RV Power Inlet - 30 Amp Twist Lock - White # F30ITRPSAM which has a 4-1/2 inch diameter.

  • Would Epicord 30 Amp Twist Lock Power Inlet - White # 277-000137 in 3-1/4 inch Hole
    The rear portion of the Epicord 30 Amp Twist Lock Power Inlet - White # 277-000137 that you referenced is 3 inches so a hole diameter of 3-1/4 inches would easily work. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Could 8 Gauge Wire Instead of 10 Gauge Wire be Ran to 30 Amp RV Socket
    Normally 10 gauge wire is used when wiring a 30 amp socket like the Epicord 30 Amp Twist Lock Power Inlet # 277-000137 but if you went with heavier 8 gauge wire it would work fine. Going thinner would be an issue though since it wouldn't be able to carry all of the amperage.

This power inlet will work with any 30 amp 3 prong twist lock female connector. I've linked options for you but recommend the Epicord RV Power Cord with Handle - 30 Amp Male to Twist Lock Female Connector - 36' Long # 277-000149 to ensure you get enough cable length and also give you the nice angled connector that is easy to use.

  • Female 30 Amp Replacement Cord Connector with Twist Lock
    The Epicord 30 Amp Twist Lock Power Inlet - White # 277-000137 is a great option for the male end that attaches to your camper. For the female connector for your cord, I recommend the Mighty Cord Replacement Twist Lock Connector for RVs - Female - 30 Amps # A10-30FDT. You may want to consider the Weatherproof Cover w/ Threaded Ring for Mighty Cord Twist Lock Female Connector - 30 Amps # A10-30CV as well.

  • Recommended 30-Amp Receptacle To Hardwire To RV
    I recommend the Epicord 30 Amp Twist Lock Power Inlet # 277-000137. The center to center distance for the mounting holes is 2-7/16 inches. If you need a power cord I recommend the Epicord RV Power Cord # 277-000148. This cord has the RV power cord with a handle. When hardwiring the cord to your RV the Black wire is the hot power lead, the White is neutral, and the green wire is used for the ground.

    We don't carry any 20 amp power inlets. I recommend you upgrade to the Epicord 30 Amp Twist Lock Power Inlet - White # 277-000137 or black # 277-000138. This will work well with a 2000 watt generator like the A-iPower 2,000-Watt Inverter Generator w/ Parallel Kit - Senci Motor - Portable - Gas - 120V # 289-SUA2000I. This combination will allow you to run the interior plugs but not at their max simultaneously. You would need to consider adding the second generator in parallel # 289-SUA2000I-2...

    No, the Epicord 30 Amp Twist Lock Power Inlet # 277-000137 uses a standard twist lock power inlet so you can use other power cords. We do have adapters that go from a 15-amp male power plug from your RV to a 30-amp receptacle. I recommend using the Camco Power Grip RV Power Cord Adapter # CAM55155 because it has a nice, bright-yellow color for easy visibility at night and a built-in handle on the male end which makes unplugging very easy. If instead you are looking for the 30-amp...

  • Can 50 Amp RV Plug Be Hooked Up to Progressive Dynamics Converter # PD4060K
    I reached out to my contact at Progressive Dynamics and he said the 4000 Series Inteli-Power Converter # PD4060K won't work with a 50 amp inlet like # A10-50INBKVP because the AC/DC panel is only rated at 30 amps. With this in mind you could hook up a 30 amp inlet such as the Epicord # 277-000137 to your existing panel. Otherwise to install a 50 amp inlet you would need a higher-rated converter and AC/DC panel like the Progressive Dynamics # PD4575K18LS8. This particular unit features...

    The best option we have available for your converted enclosed camper is the Advent Air RV Air Conditioner # ACM135BC because it's going to provide the most efficient cooling solution for the camper's interior during those hot summer months. We do not have any smaller AC units available and anything smaller we offer will be something like a powered ceiling fan vent which will only work to circulate air around the camper and not actually cool it down.

However judging by the size of the hole you've likely got, you're likely going to need to attach some sort of backing plate/mounting bracket with a 2-5/16" hole cut in it to the trailer, and then mount the inlet into that.
