Now, you found a problem with you shore power

Maybe you didn't read to the end of my post saying, "My mistake, of course, was to accept the deformity of my cord as a minor flaw. There is no excuse for me. It is not wise to accept any irregularity with a shore power
cord. Thanks, Teknishin, your advise is well taken."
As you ask about the cause of the failure, I can not identify the event that caused the cord to be deformed at the juncture of the splitter. Possibly there was some excessive movement of my boat at the dock
on some earlier occasion when the cord was not provided with enough slack. Regardless, the secure connection of the wiring
within the splitter had been compromised.
