OK folks, you got my attention and may have saved me some grief. I was in the process of ordering one of those 50/125 shore power
cords. Time to reconsider.
What I have is a 50a/125v panel, a 50a/125v inlet, various adapters and other things I won't mention going to a 50a/125v/220v pedestal
. Having read this thread, I'm convinced to go for the smart plug
. Problem is they come in 4 wire configuration. So....
can I run a 50 amp 3 wire cable to the inlet, 3 wires from the inlet to the panel (in place) and if so what connector do I use for the pedestal
? I can't see the point in running a 4 wire cable to the inlet if the boat only uses 125v
There are no 220v systems on the boat and no plans for any.
