RE: WANTED: Single 50 amp to single 30 amp adapter

Your existing splitter does just what you need , best of all you can try either leg (plug) and dee which has the highest voltage.

Marinas will frequently have more boats on the Black leg than the red leg , so the voltage will be higher if you get on the less used leg.

A big difference with air cond requiring OK voltage to start.

RE: WANTED: Single 50 amp to single 30 amp adapter

so you'd just use the existing splitter I have even though one leg of the 30 amp will be left open/unplugged?

Worst case is some desperate power hog plugs in and pops your pole breaker.

Or a curious kid sticks a butter knife in it!! *Seems a little risky to me to use my 2 to 1 splitter with one leg hanging around loose/unused but still hot!

The last splitter I bought came with a cover on one of the legs, a round piece of plastic or hard rubber, covering the outlet and*held in place by the screw on ring. could be removed if someone really wanted to stick something in there but not accidentally by a small child. that was a Marinco splitter.

The one on the boat next to me has a piece of thin piece*starboard cut in a circle that the locking ring holds in place on the unused leg.* Keep water, dirt and kids out.

RE: WANTED: Single 50 amp to single 30 amp adapter

Woodsong,
I am pretty sure I have the one you are asking for on the boat as a spare. My 50 amp to twin 30's had one prong overheat about two weeks ago and damaged a socket. I got a new 30 amp cord and eliminated the Y at our home slip. I will need to replace it for future traveling.
Having said all of that, if your splitter is in good condition and you are interested- I would send you the one you want and pay you fair money for The difference on your splitter. I need a 50 amp 125/250 volt male to twin 30 amp female. Please PM if you are interested
