Bill, This is what I have on order: Marinco Pigtail 30 Amp Female to 50 Amp Male. On the Defender site, I'm not finding a 125/250 adapter.

YMMV of course, as always :-)

Bill
So I'd be smarter to get this one rather than the 30-50 125v?
Furrion Pigtail 30 Amp Female To 50 Amp Male

Re: Shore Power Adapters for the Bahamas

I don't think there is any difference other than the Furrion has a pretty light and Marinco is sort of the standard.
I do not know if Marinco is actually any better or not.
I guess the light is to remind you to cut off the breaker?

The Marinco is a 125v adapter; whereas, the Furrion is a 125/250v adapter. Bill has indicated that the 125/250 is more commonly found in the Bahamas. My question is do I need both or does the Furrion work in either case.

The Furion will connect to a 125/250 plug, it's physically different than a 125 plug.

Thought so. So I need both if I want to be sure to be able to connect.

Here's what I'm looking at:
Marinco Pigtail 30 Amp Female to 50 Amp Male
Adapter is about $20 on eBay.

In the Bahamas I think you'll have more fun if you just plan on anchoring lol.
