I see that Smart Plug, on the Smart Plug site, has made the step into the pedestal side, (a relatively new step) BUT I see also that you are talking about a home dockside setup. That would mean you would need to carry 2 $300+ cords to make connections as you travel, until the world changes over.
Since the majority of the dockside connections will be Marinco, 2 or 3 marinas aren't enough for me to make the investment.
Those cords, where would you buy them? The picture of the cord, available at Defender, that was in my previous post, shows a Marinco plug on 1 end & a Smart Plug on the other. West Marine, here, (https://www.westmarine.com/search?Nt...ug+shore+power
) shows the same. So the boat to dock cord sets aren't on the open market yet.
You'd need to go to Smart Plug to purchase them.
When the 2 largest marine retailers start to carry the cord you are mentioning, there will have been greater acceptance.
What will make sense to most is that when the acceptance level is high enough, and maybe for you to save a couple of $$$, the CM30043L530R | 30 AMP FEMALE TWIST-TYPE CONNECTOR TO 30 AMP SMARTPLUG MALE CONNECTOR (https://smartplug.com/portfolio-item...ale-connector/
) would/will be the solution.
I'm glad to see that they have made that step, we went to Smart Plug back in '11 and have them for both our house & AC connections.
That said, in the interim, it is best to put a Smart Plug on your boat. That is where most of the fires start.
Thanks for pointing that out.
