SmartPlug vs. Twist Lock


RV and boat owners have long relied on Twist Lock style connections for powering their rides. For years, it has been the best option for connecting to shore power. It's been reliable, but most know it's not without disadvantages:


Twist-Type Design Problems

  • Curved pins make minimal surface contact, increasing the amount of heat generated
  • Locking ring can be prone to breaking, cross threading, and stripping out
  • Faulty locking ring puts strain on the connection
  • Wear and debris can loosen the fit, further decreasing surface contact
  • Circular plug shape isn't user friendly and takes some awareness of the orientation of the pins to insert correctly

SmartPlug's connector addresses each of these concerns and does all of the heavy lifting.


Locking arms grab the inlet, a clamp inside the plug body holds the cord, the inlet cap snaps to the top while in use, and the integrated seals weatherproof the connection. This helps prevent the wiggly, dirty connections that increase electrical resistance, which creates potentially dangerous heat.


Since it uses a square plug face, SmartPlug is able to use flat pins which create far more surface contact, further reducing the risk of high heat and electrical arcing. The square shape and flat pins also make it easy to plug in - no more twisting or guessing if the pins are lined up correctly.

I have on several occasions experienced times when my electricity inside our RV wasn't working. It would inevitably be because the connection from shore power to the camper was loose. I just installed my new SmartPlug today and already feel confident in the connection. Purchasing from etrailer was easy and the product shipped in a timely manner.



by:

etrailer kept me in the loop on the backorder of the black SmartPlug, I understood the supply chain, but it was nice to be updated on the timeline for shipment. So nice for a company to keep you in the loop without having to chase the details!



by:

Excellent customer service on the part of eTrailer. Had to exchange the stainless steel model for this one because of fitting issues. Product itself is well constructed and exceeds intended purpose!



by:

This is a very welcome improvement for our RV's Electrical hookup. Easy to install, took about an hour.
One concern, the connector instructions that I downloaded stated to cut back the cable outer jacket 1.25". The instructions that came with the connector stated to cut back the cable outer jacket to 1.75". I feel the 1.25" was correct. 1.75" does not really give you enough exposed outer jacket to achieve the required 1/4" grip by the cable clamp swing arm.



by:

Excellent replacement for the cheap outlet and plug that most RV makers use. I have no worry about a bad connection overheating and causing a fire. Connecting and disconnecting is quick and easy.



by:

Just 4 stars for packaging and instructions. HAVE NOT INSTALLED the product yet. will re-review when that happens.



by:

Looks excellent!
We will put it together
next week!

This Smart plug inlet plug is true to size. I've used the Smart Plug system on other RVs and am familiar with the better contact area. I was delighted to see that this plug fit inside the connection center of my campervan, and still be able to close cover with no bulging.



by:

The old style RV plugs are prone to have connection problems which causes melting of the unit. That happened to me in below freezing weather and we lost power to our trailer. This new plug will not have that problem. It fits together solidly and I don't worry about any loose connection. I have seen that the SmartPlug is now standard equipment on Airstream trailers. That's quite an endorsement. You Cann't go wrong with the SmartPlug system.



by:

When saw this of course I said I wanted it. This make hooking up a lot easier and I feel more secure about the electrical connection. Now my friend wants me to change his. The conversation was very simple.



by:

I really like the SmartPlug! I kept noticing the old plug would turn sometimes in the socket and just about unplug itself. The SmartPlug is always secure and easy to unplug when you are ready.



by:

No complaints. Got what I ordered, installed it and it worked. SmartPlug 30amp white.



by:

Superior to all other shore power inlets! This system is amazing.



by:

The Smart Plug is a quality upgrade to our Airstream. It looks good and was an easy quick install.



by:

Easy to Install. Clear instructions but you can also find install videos on YouTube. Stainless cost slightly more than the plastic version but looks great on my Airstream.



by:

Purchased connector at customer's request. I'm impressed by the quality of the product.



by:

I found the installation of the inlet easy and the modification of the connector very easy. The instructions were very easy to follow and very comprehensive.

The only issue was the rear cover (pictured) for the inlet could not fit at the front location of may 2019 Airstream Flying Cloud 27 ft. FB. I also installed the cable port.



by:

E trailer is my go to shop for many of my components and appliances in my Van Builds. Their prompt delivery and customer service is excellent. Their consistency is something I can depend on Van to Van to Van.



by:

Excellent product. Install was not difficult. .definitely an upgrade from the original 50 amp plug.



by:

The SmartPlug installed great and after a year of heavy use continues to perform perfectly! Electrical hookups are now quick and positive with solid connections!



by:

It's installed but still building trailer so have not gotten to use it yet. Will Update when i do!



by:

I received at least two emails updating me on the shipping dates and another one when it shipped. The Smartplug was on back order and they kept me up to date.

  • Installing the Progressive Dynamics Mighty Mini AC/DC Panel and Converter/Smart Charger # PD4060K
    Yes, for your stated objective you are on the correct track. The Progressive Dynamics Mighty Mini AC/DC Panel and Converter/Smart Charger, # PD4060K will provide a full 60 Amps of DC charge to your battery bank. This is to be used with a 30 amp AC inlet such as the Furrion Marine Power Inlet, # F30ITSBS, that you referenced. Or my preferred option, the SmartPlug RV Power Inlet and Connector - 30 Amp, # SM27FR in black. ( # SM77FR - white, # SM87FR - Gray, # SM67FR - SS .) The # F30ITSBS...

  • Can A SmartPlug Power Inlet Be Installed In A nuCamp T@b Teardrop Trailer
    With the size of your trailer and you stating you only have three wires running to the power inlet you most likely have 30 amp service and would definitely be able to swap out the inlet with the SmartPlug RV Power Inlet and Connector # SM27FR. I've installed a few of these and have run into some issues with the cutout holes in the past and had to get a bit creative. Some times you just have to trim a bit more out for it to fit and some times the previous inlet was a bit wider and you'll...

  • Can Smart Plug RV SM27FR be Used with 50 Amp Wiring
    If the 50 amp cable you have now has 3 wires and not 4 (check the amount of recipticles/prongs on the front of it) then yes you can use the SmartPlug RV # SM27FR with it.

  • What Material is the 30 AMP SmartPlug RV and Marine Power Inlet and Connector Made From
    The 30 amp SmartPlug RV and Marine Power Inlet and Connector, # SM67FR that you linked to is made from highly polished Marine-Grade 316 Stainless Steel. The electrical pins are nickel-plated brass for maximum conductivity with the internal electrics being fully encased in thermal epoxy. This makes them 100% weatherproof.

  • Recommendations For AC/DC Panel and Converter Along with Wiring, for a Scamp
    First off, congrats on the Scamp, those are great little fiberglass units that last for years. Generally speaking we suggest that electrical wiring, for safety purposes, be done by licensed electricians or certified RV Techs. But as for the items and why, let me begin with the AC/DC distribution panel. I recommend the Progressive Dynamics Mighty Mini AC/DC Panel and Converter/Smart Charger, # PD4045KA at 45 Amps. There is also a 60 Amp version, # PD4060K, but the 45 amp version is well...

  • Upgrade/Replacement 30 Amp RV Power Inlet and Connector to the SmartPlug
    The SmartPlug Upgrade RV Power Inlet and Connector, 30 Amp, # SM77FR is a great option. I prefer the stainless steel, # SM67FR option myself for aesthetics but each is well made and the same unit outside of materials constructed with. You use the same cord that you currently have, cut off the plug and install the new one that comes with the kit. It has full detailed instructions on how to do so. Please note the linked product review video. The color options are: # SM27FR - black ...
