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 what 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • What is Needed to Tow a M105A2 Military Trailer with a 2013 Dodge Durango?
  • To convert your M105A2 military trailer to a 7-blade, I would recommend using the Epicord 7-Way with Junction Box # 277-000141. This makes the conversion simple and you don't have to worry about wiring the connector itself. You'll also need some ring terminals like # 44-5310A and some loom clamps like # A0500. The wires in the junction box are color coded as indicated below. Military wiring is typically not color-coded, so you may need to use a circuit tester like # ALL640595 and a 12V...

  • 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.

  • Could Twist Lock Inlet Be Used on RV To Make Power Cable Removable
  • The part # 277-000137 is designed to have a twist lock connector attach to it. If you ran your wire to this you could then run a twist lock to the connector when needed. For a connector you then would want the part # A10-30FDT.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • How to Convert M105A2 Cargo Trailer from Air-Over-Hydraulic Brakes to EOH or Electric Drums
  • You can use your Parkhurst M105A2 military cargo trailer with your Silverado by converting its air-over-hydraulic (AOH) braking system to either electric-over-hydraulic (EOH) or electric drum brakes. Both options would allow the trailer brake controller in your Silverado to activate the trailer's brakes. The simpler and lower cost option is electric drum brakes since these require no hydraulic lines, just fairly simple electrical wiring and installation of a junction box like # 277-000141. You...

  • Wire Gauge Sizes in Epicord 7-Way Molded Trailer Plug with Junction Box
  • The wire gauges in the Epicord 7-Way Molded Trailer Plug with Junction Box # 277-000141 are as follows: White = 10 Black = 10 Yellow = 14 Green = 14 Red = 14 Brown = 14 Blue = 12 The wire gauge in the Epicord # 277-000141 changes with different functions of the wires.

Heavier gauge wire is used for functions like the brake signal, ground, and 12V power because they carry...

Here you can see all 30-amp and 50-amp wiring products. 50-amp cords like # A10-5025EH use a different 4-conductor pattern.

  • 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 Battery Disconnect for Trailer Application To Prevent Power Drain
  • You have a couple of options for a battery disconnect I recommend. You can use Superwinch Quick Connect # SW2236 or # SW1551 depending on wire gauge to give you quick connect/disconnect. If you prefer a keyed disconnection switch you can use the Epicord Battery Disconnect Switch with Key - 50 Amp # 277-000096. This will isolate your battery to prevent power drain with the turn of a key.

  • You should not have any issues using Epicord 7-Way Molded Trailer Plug # 277-000143 with the 7-Way on your Chevy truck.

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring for 7-Way with Only 5 Wires
  • I've attached a diagram for you with function locations. Your left turn and stop are what will need to be connected for the flashers to work. These are found on the left and right side blades of your 7-way connectors. I recommend using a circuit tester like # 3808 to check your wiring functions on your lights. It sounds like you have a running/parking light, turn signal/stop, and ground but the colors are not typical. My recommendation because your wiring colors are not standard...

  • Can Key of Epicord Battery Disconnect Switch with Key # 277-000096 be Removed when On
  • The only time the key of the Epicord Battery Disconnect Switch with Key # 277-000096 can be removed is when the key is in the off position. The key has to be installed for it to be in "ON". It can withstand some weather pretty easily like most wiring that you might find under the hood of an engine, but you wouldn't want to submerge it by any means.

  • What Size Hole Saw is Used to Install the Epicord 30 Amp Twist Lock Power Inlet
  • If you have a typical hole saw set, then you will want to use a 3" hole saw on the Epicord 30 Amp Twist Lock Power Inlet, # 277-000138. The outer diameter of the socket that mounts in the RV wall is 2-7/8 inches. If you wanted to be very precise, you could use a 2-7/8 inch hole saw and grind down the edges for a snug fit, but I would make sure there is a small gap for the movement of the trailer or RV wall when driving.
