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.

Video Transcript for Review of SmartPlug RV Power Inlets - 50 Amp Power Cord Conversion Kit and Black Inlet - SM76FR

Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a quick look at this SmartPlug 50 amp power connector and black inlet conversion kit. This kit is going to provide everything that you're gonna need to upgrade your 50 amp, 125 volt or 250 volt RV setup from your traditional twist type plug to take advantage of all the benefits of the smart plug system. Your inlet is going to have the same mounting holes as your twist type holes. So it's gonna be very easy to get this plugged in. They do have color-coded knobs on the backside here to help you get that wired properly.

They do include instructions with pictures to help you get that all wired in place and mounted up on your RV so that you can very easily plug your connector in. Your connector is going to wire to your existing power cords and you will have to cut off the twist type connector that is currently on there. Again, the instructions will walk you through that step by step. So very easy to get this wired in place of the connector that you currently have on your cord. And then once everything is installed, you would be very surprised and pleased with how easy it is to use the smart plug system.

And it's got lots of benefits, including that the shape here only fits in the one way. So if you get to your campsite late at night, it's dark and you can't see what you're doing rather than having to figure out which direction to plug it in. It only fits the one way, so it's very easy to get that plugged in. The sleeve design is going to ensure that the weight of your plug and cord is taken off of the electrical pins. It's gonna be beared by that sleeve design.

So it's gonna fit right in. It does also have the multi-point locking system. So the lid will come down once you are connected to provide a little bit-- but the main lock-in is these two stainless steel tabs here that will-- well, it's a lock in place, so it's gonna be nice and firmly connected. So you don't have to worry about disconnecting it if you we're to trip over it or something like that. It's going to bear that weight so that it's not being put on those pins and causing them to wiggle, loose or become disconnected.

Those pins are a straight nickel plated brass. So they are going to have a lot more connection for your electrical transfer. It's going to provide about 20 times more contact than your curved system design. So that's going to create less resistance, less heat. So it's gonna flow through there much more efficiently for you. The inlet cap will close down over the inlet of course when you're not using it to help to prevent any water debris from getting in there. But we do have a triple weatherproof seal even on our plugs. So when it's all plugged in, it's gonna be a very weather tight. You're not gonna have to worry about that. They do include the screws to get your electrical components mounted in place there as well as different cords for your 110 volt and 250 volt connector. So everything that you're gonna need to get this system installed in place of your current system. This is a nice high quality material kit. So these plastics are a UV and heat resistant resin. So they'll hold up really well. External metals are a marine grade 316 stainless steel. So they're gonna resist corrosion and do a great job for us for a long time to come. Now this kit, all these components are made here in the USA. So you can trust they are made to the high quality standards that we've come to know and trust for products that are made here in the US. This system has several twins. So this is the black inlet cover. So make sure that that's gonna work for you, your setup and match your other plugs and covers. But there is also a white, a gray, a stainless steel option. That stainless steel is just slightly different because it is a metal instead of the plastic. But the white and gray are exactly the same, just different colors. So make sure that you're getting the one that is gonna best match your RV's exterior setup. But overall, I'd say this is a really great option if you are considering switching over to the smart plug system. All those benefits are gonna make this a really great switch for you so that you can take advantage of that nice, secured connection so you don't have to worry about your cable coming loose or causing problems with those pins. So that's gonna complete our work for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..

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.

@EnnisA We're happy to hear that!

The best connector made. Easy to install



by:

I was having issues with the electric connection at the trailer. The ring around the male plug wasn't keeping the plug right to the trailer causing a couple lower outages in the trailer. This plug combination totally cured that issue. When plugged into trailer, it's a tight positive, locked fit. When electrical connections are loose, they cause heat. Could very well cause a fire. I eliminated that connection problem with this plug!!!! Highly recommend.



by:

Replaced my connector and seems well built. You should assemble it over something to catch dropped screws.



by:

Great products and service



by:

I haven’t had a chance to install the smart plug power inlet and connector yet but based off of videos and reviews I have no doubt it will be huge improvement from the twist lock and plastic wring I currently have. Will update again once installed

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:

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:

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:

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:

Can’t wait to get it installed. Looks like quality materials and ease of installation per videos.



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.

  • Does SmartPlug RV Power Inlet Come With 90 Degree Connector
    I definitely agree with you there Dave, it would be a very nice option to have, but a 90 degree cord is not something made for the 50 amp SmartPlug RV Power Inlet and Connector # SM76FR. I will say the way the plug connects does make it a better, more robust overall connection than the standard twist lock. Reason for that is the outside of the SmartPlug completely encompasses the inlet so there's less tension on the plug, and the lid clamps down on the plug for further support. So while...

  • Comparing 50A SmartPlug Plastic and Stainless Steel Options
    The plastic that comes on the 50A SmartPlug RV Power Inlet and Connector # SM76FR is very durable and you'll be happy with it for years to come. The reason why SmartPlug offers the Stainless Steel alternative, Kit # SM96FR, is because they understand the desire for high-quality electrical parts so they wanted to offer a premium version. As durable as plastic can be, it will never last longer or be a better protector than Stainless Steel. Attached are review videos for both options that...
