Today we're going to be taking a look at the Power Grip Generator Adapter for for our RV power cords. This is for the 30 amp 4-prong style. Then you're able to plug in at 50 amp RV-style connector. The part number is CAM55382. This is a 25 volt adapter cord. It will plug in, as we said, standard 50 amp can plug right into here. Then we can run this right into our 4-prong style connector.

This is a L-14-50 style receptacle. It's made to go right into our generator and then twist with the two small tabs there giving us the leverage we need. That really helps to hold it into place. It's going to prevent this from vibrating loose while our generator is running and powering it. As you can see, we've got bright yellow ends there. It's going to be easy to see in low light.

We've got a built-in handle here on the female connector. That's going to make plugging and unplugging pretty effortless. Now that we've seen what it is and how it works, that will complete today's look at the Camco RV products Power Grip RV Generator Adapter, part number CAM55382. .

This product is answer to my dreams. Have a 37' Pace Arrow which had a 3.5k generator which was only capable of running one a cat a time. Generator died and I quickly found out generator repair people are rarer than Amish electricians. Bought a 7k generator and was arranging to pay an electrician to wire it in to rv when I discoveees this incredible connection. It twists in to 120/240 outlet on generator and accepts 4 prong rv cord. GREAT!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you. Turned on both ac's for first time since I owned rv, (over 10 yrs). Within mins rv was cool and I have enough power for another rv. This thing is great. I highly recommend to anyone with an rv with a small generator or generator in need of repair, go buy a 7k running amp generator and this plug and you're set with plenty of electrical power. Also, the quality and durability of this part is suprisingly amazing. You can easily run over this plug with your rv and not phase it. BUY ONE. This will be the best rv purchase you can make. Thank you ETRAILER for a great product worth twice the price easily. Will be ordering another one for a friend soon. 5?? 434304

Thanks for follow up survey. Your customer satisfaction concern is impressive. Have used product often and it still looks like the day I got it. It will easily outlast rv and probably me. Thanks. Stand behind my review of a year ago. You guys are my go to for further needs.

Very handy. We use it at home to plug in, keeping the battery charged up at all times. (We have a high quality charger that does the job right. Not all do!) It also enables us to run one of the A/C units so we can stay cool while loading up and prepping for a trip. etrailer shipped it quickly, and it arrived on time and in good condition. Excellent service. 560254


Comments

We still use it all the time at home, and its never given us any problem at all. Have also used it a couple of times on the road, where there was only 30A plug and or a GFCI 15A circuit so we could not use the 30+15 dogbone.

It is nice being able to plug in the camper at my house. I've had problems in the past with using a cheater. That went from 50 amp 30 amp to 15 amp. Now I can go from 50 amp straight to 15 amp to just plug into the house. 422611

Very nice product from Camco... A must have if you travel a bunch and don't know if you're next stop is 30 amp or 50 amp service.. for the folks with 30 amp units to be able to adapt to 50 amp you will need this at some point and time as many of the campground facilities are installing or upgrading to 50 amp service only. 381341

Review from a similar Camco Power Grip in RV Wiring


New to Camp trailers, I bought this to connect our trailer to a house outlet until I can install 30 Amp service. My intent was to plug this directly into the outside house outlet, then plug the camper into it. Not going to happen. The male side will not plug into most outside outlets that have a protective cover. If the duplex outlet is installed vertically, or horizontally with the ground on the left side, the Camper plug will put so much torque on the outlet that it will break. So I went to "Plan B" and used my construction grade extension cord between the wall and the adapter, Works GREAT! Having the plugs at 90 degrees to each other really makes putting them together or taking them apart easy (and both of my hands are partly disabled). The bright color means I won't forget it when traveling, and the ABS plastic makes it nearly indestructible. Although I am happy with this, and it is doing the job well, you might consider Product CAM55165, it is a pigtail that will allow you to use your new adapter in a greater variety of locations. 138175


Comments

Still have the adapter, the Yellow color has helped a couple of times! We are now looking to upgrade our original trailer to a newer model and this little thing will definitely be going with us!

Review from a similar Camco Power Grip in RV Wiring


This is a great alternative to the 30 to 50 amp dogbone that I already own. For those times when I need (or want) to run the AC, microwave, water heater and fridge at the same time and only have a 30 amp connection available this will come in handy. I've run a separate 15 amp extension cord a couple of times to set up an outside kitchen and I don't think I've ever found a 30 amp plug without the 15 amp sockets right there too. As long as they're not GFCI this cable will give me 45 amps in the trailer when there's no 50 amp connection. Or - like last year on New Years Eve when the 50 amp circuit only had one side working - and you're forced to use the 30 amp socket or nothing at all. 559132


Comments

Even better now that I carry a 15 amp socket. I can change out the GFCI outlet if thats all thats available and change it back before I leave, of course . Thanks John G. For the hint...

Review from a similar Camco Power Grip in RV Wiring


This 90 degree adapter relieved a lot of the stress from my Motorhome connector. The 50 amp cord sticking straight out was placing a lot of stress on the shore power plug on my motorhome. This pigtail with the 90 degree plug reduces that stress tremendously. I wish Camco would make the plug separately so you could just attach it directly to your cord and eliminate the large bulky extra connection, now that would really be a winner 303283

Product was good quality. Shipped immediately. Arrived sooner than projected. Price was very competitive. The adapter is being used on my generator to convert from the 30 amp outlet on a Honda generator to one that will go to my motor-home. 463632

Looks good. Have not tried yet. Price was great. I had a hard time finding a 30 amp/30 amp. Our rig is setup that we have to use our left hand to plug rig into our receptacle whennwe use the generator... we are right handed. We have a hard time getting the plug out without some struggling from the rig. My husband has had a stroke and I have a hard time getting enough leverage with my left hand so this will be perfect. Ill plug cord into this and then this into rig. 396371

Review from a similar Camco Power Grip in RV Wiring


I bought this Camco Power Grip a year ago and have used it daily for eight of the last 12 months. I have a 50 amp RV and am plugged into a 30 amp service and would often kick the breaker with routine use. I was limited on the use of electrical appliances. Since purchasing the Power Grip I have much better use of my electrical system. I can even run both AC units at the same time which I have done occasionally. I highly recommend this product. 547660

I fully understand that this isn't going to work with a GFCI type outlet, and most campgrounds now will have this type of outlet. But it does work great if they do not have GFCI outlets, so I bought it for those rare times. 232776

Review from a similar Camco Power Grip in RV Wiring


I haven’t used my power grip yet but I bought it because my uncle has one. It works great we were camping and the campsite only had 30amp hookup. My RV has a 50amp plug and I used a 30amp adapter but the power kept shutting off. My uncle used his power grip adapter and he didn’t have any problems. That’s why I purchased my own. Everyone should have one who does RV camping. Thanks 518015

Do you have a question about this RV Wiring?


  • Power Cord to Connect 50 amp RV Outlet to 50 amp Receptacle
  • The male end of the Power Grip, part # CAM55422, plugs into a 30 amp receptable. So it can't plug into a 50 amp on that end. Instead use the Mighty Cord, part # A10-5050D90VP, that does connet 50 amp to 50 amp. You also won't be limiting yourself to 30 amps.
    view full answer...

  • Recommended Power Cord Adapter to Plug In 30-Amp Extension to 50-Amp RV Inlet
  • The Camco Power Grip Generator Adapter for RV Power Cord # CAM55422 referenced in your question is designed to plug into a 30-amp twist-lock generator receptacle. The female end of the adapter will connect to your RV's 50-amp power plug. In order to connect to your RV's 50-amp inlet to allow for a 30-amp extension cord, I instead recommend looking at the Mighty Cord RV Power Cord Adapter # A10-3050DBK. I have attached a short video demonstration on this product that you can also check out.

  • Available Lengths of 50-Amp RV Power Cables

  • Comparing Mighty Cord and Camco 50 amp to 30 amp Adapters
  • In the Mighty Cord Generator Adapter for RV Power Cord # A10-G30450VP that you referenced there are 6 and 8 gauge wires used. The big difference between this and the Camco part # CAM55422 that you would notice is the handle that the Camco has on the female side. This has a larger handle which would help make unplugging a bit easier since it's something solid you can grab onto. If you have limited clearance the Mighty Cord would be the better option as it does not have this.
