Expert Answers about Epicord

  • Operation of AC Unit and Other Outlet From 2000 Watt Portable Generator
  • 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...

  • Can 7-Way Junction Box 277-000141 Be Used to Charge Trailer Battery
  • If there happened to be a 12 volt keyed power source in the circuits of the # 277-000141 you could use it for the isolation solenoid # TR118665. Essentially you would need to have the 12 volt circuit of the vehicle already be only active when the key is on. Which if that were the case you wouldn't need the solenoid realistically. If the 12 volt circuit of your truck's 7-way is active all the time you would need to install the solenoid on that circuit and that would get the circuit active...

  • Replacement 50 Amp RV Power Cord
  • It's hard to say whether the issue is with your cord or power source. The source could be tested but I recommend having a professional do this. On the other hand buying a new cord to test is likely less expensive and easier. If I had to guess I'd lean towards the cord being the issue since it works with the 30 amp adapter on it. As for which cord you really can't go wrong with either. Both the Epicord, part # 277-000151, and Mighty Cord, part # A10-5025ED90, are good products and...

  • Are the Epicord RV Power Cords # 277-000147 and # 277-000149 Like Extension Cords
  • The Epicord RV Power Cords, like part # 277-000147 and part # 277-000149, are 30' and 36' feet long cords respectively. Depending on what connections you have they can be used as an extension cord. One end is a 30 Amp male and the other end is a 30 Amp female twist lock connector like what connects to an inlet like part # 277-000138 which would be on your RV or trailer. I have attached some review videos for you to check out.

  • Wiring Diagram for Home Made Trailer
  • I've linked an article on trailer wiring that includes a diagram you might find helpful. One solution to help wire everything together is to use a junction box with your trailer's 7-way connector, like # 277-000141. This way you can run all of your trailer's wires to the box instead of to the back of the connector. To wire you brakes you'll want to use 10 gauge wiring # 10-1-1. For the lights you can use 16 gauge, # 16-1-1. Both are sold by the foot. When looking into the back...

  • Can Non-Epicord Cords be Used with the Epicord 30 Amp Twist Lock Power Inlet # 277-000137
  • 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...

This power inlet will work with any 30 amp 3 prong twist lock female connector.

  • 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.

  • 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.

You may want to consider the Weatherproof Cover w/ Threaded Ring for Mighty Cord Twist Lock Female Connector - 30 Amps # A10-30CV as well.

  • 30-Amp RV Power Outlet and Power Cord
  • It sounds like you're interested in installing a 30-amp RV outlet like # DG30VP, along with a cover plate like # DG52399PB, so that you can use a separate power cord such as # A10-3025ED90. This 25-foot cord has a 30-amp male plug on one end to match the outlet and a 30-amp female twist-lock connector on the other end. This female connector is shown in the linked photo. The cord you referenced, part # 277-000149, has these same connectors but it is 36-feet long. If you have a different...

  • Adding a Battery to a Trailer with a 4-Way Connector
  • To run a charge line to your battery you will first need to install a 7-Way on your trailer. This can be done using the Epicord 7-Way Molded Trailer Plug with Junction Box # 277-000141. The Black wire in the junction box is the one that will carry the 12V power. Just simply use a ring terminal like part # 44-5310A and run 10 Gauge Wire # 10-1-1 to the positive terminal on your battery. The 4 wires that are currently on your trailer and tow vehicle are only for the lights and are not...

  • How to Determine the Right Replacement Power Cord to Plug a Trailer/RV into Shore Power
  • To replace the power cord that goes from the shore power receptacle at a camp site to the RV you will need to know the amperage rating for both. Most shore power receptacles are 30 amp, some are 50. Rarely you will see a 15 amp. The different amperage ratings require different connector types so even if you are not sure what the RV has you can look at the outlet. Cord # 277-000149 is a 30 amp to 30 amp so the end that plugs into an outlet has two slanted flat pins and one round ground...

  • Weight of the Epicord RV Power Cord with Handle # 277-000155
  • The Epicord RV Power Cord with Handle # 277-000155 that you referenced weighs about 22 lbs. I am not sure how small it will coil though as that is not a standard feature that is measured on power cords like this. I can say that you need to make sure not to force the cord when coiling it for storage as that could very well cause some damage. Attached is a review video for you to check out.

  • Installation of Epicord Battery Disconnect Switch
  • A battery disconnect switch such as the Epicord Battery Disconnect Switch with Key # 277-000096 will simply install inline from the 12V terminal on your 7-way to your pair of 12V batteries; because of this you are going to need one switch per battery. I have added a link to a video review of this switch for you to check out as well.

  • Can I Use My 7-Way Truck Wiring To Wire My Lance Camper Harness To My 2018 Ram 3500
  • I found the owner's manual for your 2019 Lance 850 and it does recommend to use 8 gauge wire with their proprietary connector. Using the 8 gauge wire from truck battery to the camper ensures you have adequate amperage to the accessories in your camper. Since the vehicle's current wiring for the 7-way is not 8 gauge wire I do not recommend splicing into that wiring to install the camper's plug onto the vehicle. I recommend wiring the Lance vehicle plug into the truck separately or take...

  • Adapter and Re-Wiring Kit for Lance Truck Camper with Round Pin 7-Way Plug
  • A junction box/7-way plug kit like Epicord # 277-000141 or # ET7WK lets you convert the camper to match the 7-way RV blade type connector format. This avoids the extra connection points and potential trouble spots from using separate adapters. These items use different wire colors so be sure to follow the wiring guide for the specific kit you select. The existing wires on the camper will need ring terminals like # 44-5310A (for 12 and 10 gauge wires) and # DW05702-1 (for 16 and 14 gauge...

  • Wiring Needed to Rewire a Trailer for Lights and Electric Brakes
  • Both the # A40W5B and # W002290 have a blue wire that is only 5 feet long. Plus, the blue wire is only 18 gauge and 20 gauge, respectively. So these are not going to work for your application. What you're going to want to use is Bonded 4 Wire # 16-4B-1 which is sold by the foot. This will provide the four 16 gauge wires to run from the junction box, part # 277-000141, to your trailer's lights. Then for the brakes you will want a 10 gauge wire, # 10-1-1, which is also sold by the...

  • Parts Needed to Operate Electric Brakes on Roadmaster Tow Dolly to Tow a 2014 Fiat 500L
  • It sounds like you're trying to power the lights and brakes on the Roadmaster RM3477 tow dolly. To do this you will not want to connect the dolly to the Fiat that's being towed but rather to the RV that's towing it. I assume the RM3477 has a 4-way connector on it because Roadmaster dollies often do. Even though they need a 7-way to power the brakes. What you'll need is a 7-way trailer connector like # 277-000141. This has a junction box attached to it which will make it easier to...

  • Hardware Needed To Install 277-000096 50 Amp Battery Disconnect Switch
  • The 50 amp battery disconnect switch would install inline on the positive battery cable. If there's enough slack in the positive cable to reach the area where you want to mount the switch, you'd simply cut disconnect the positive battery cable and cut it at the point where it reaches the terminals on the back of the switch. You'd need to install a ring terminal on the wire, but the size terminal you need will depend on the gauge of the wire used for the cable (the wire gauge should be printed...

  • Recommended RV Pigtail 30 Amp and 125 Volt
  • We do have power cables that meet your 30 amp and 125 volt criteria, however we do not have a 36 inch option for length. I'm not sure why that length is needed, but if you can use a longer cable it is actually more cost effective to use a manufactured length. If you need a precise 36 inch long cable, I recommend you customize a cable to that length using Epicord RV Power Cord with Handle 25' Long Pigtail # 277-000144 and the Mighty Cord Replacement Hardwire RV Plug - Female End # A10-R30VP....
