How Can I Plug In a Regular Extension Cord Into a 30 AMP Plug at a Campground?

by Anonymous

In a KOA campsite, with a 30 amp power supply, can you plug a standard outdoor extension cord into the box, or does it require an adaptor of some kind?

ANSWER: Thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

In a lot of cases the electrical boxes at campgrounds also have a normal household 15 Amp outlet as well as a 30 AMP and/or 50 Amp receptacles. You can call the campground that you are staying at and verify if they also have the normal 15 AMP electrical outlets on their electric boxes (pedestals).

If you stay at a campground that does not include a 15 AMP outlet you can use a 30 amp male to 15 amp female adapter to plug your extension cord into a 30 AMP outlet.

I hope this helps.
