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.

    The SmartPlug Upgrade RV Power Inlet and Connector, 30 Amp, # SM77FR is a great option.

  • 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...
