30 Amp Shore Power Receptacle Wiring Diagram Needed

I am hooking up the receptacle and cant find a diagram that tells me which wire goes to which prong
Can someone post a picture?
thanks

adding, I think I found it here
http://blog.boattrader.com/2011/06/shore-power.html



the W is the neutral wire so counterclockwise should be ground- neutral - hot
And this image is looking at the prong ends side.

Black (Hot) Wire to the Brass Screw

The terminals are usually painted the appropriate color.

I have 3 of these SS Marinco receptacles and the terminals are not colored, just all look like shiny SS screws. I think I will take a marker and write on the back plastic housing.

Hmm ! -interesting. Didn't intend to mislead you. Checked my considerable stock before earlier post--and every MarinCo I have is color coded.
Was this the Pedestal receptacle?

no, these are the ones that go on your boat. And none have any color coding on the screws. Perhaps the color coding 'paint' is gone. They are SS Marinco with the swing screw cover
