Hello Mike,

I have ordered a 2022 F150 with the Pro Power Onboard 7.2KW generator.  I want to be able to power our 30 amp Jayco travel trailer and can't figure out a safe "dogbone" to transfer the 240v, 30 amp truck power to 110v, 30 amp for the trailer.  Can you suggest a safe way to do this?  Very much appreciated!

This is easy, and I did it over the summer when Ford loaned me an F-150 PowerBoost for 2 weeks of towing and generator experiments.

First you need an RV Generator Adapter Cord, 4-Prong L14-30P Locking Male Plug to 14-50R Amp Female 

That will create a 120/240-volt 50-amp pedestal outlet that's limited to 30-amps per leg. 

You plug that into an RV 50A Male to double 30A RV adapter cord, (14-50P male to (double) TT-30R female.

All of the above adapters available on Amazon. Plug them together and you'll create two separate 30-amp RV TT-30 outlets, which will allow you to power two separate 30-amp RVs at the same time. Or you can just power one 30-amp RV and the second TT-30 outlet is a spare.

Hello Again Mike,

Won't this plug do the same thing with only one wire?

Again, thanks again for your insights.

             Ron

Mike,

That link didn't work quite right.  Here is the description:

L14-30P male plug to NEMA TT-30R female receptacle. 30A 125/250V to 30A 125V

How about this?

Regards,

       Ron

Im trying to figure out to hook up my 50 Amp TT  RV to my 7.2kw Ford generator with out causing damage since the RV dealer stated never use 240v (like a dryer outlet) to power it up use 30A 110 single pole breaker  or 50A separate  110 legs is that correct and what would be the correct way of hooking all connections??? thanks

You just need a 4-prong, twist-lock, 120/240-volt, 30-amp male generator plug to 50-amp 120/240-volt RV outlet. Here’s one that will work:

Hello Mike,

I have ordered a 2022 F150 with the Pro Power Onboard 7.2KW generator(similar to it).  I want to be able to power our 30 amp Jayco travel trailer and can't figure out a safe "dogbone" to transfer the 240v, 30 amp truck power to 110v, 30 amp for the trailer.  Can you suggest a safe way to do this?  Very much appreciated!
