Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] 30 Amp 125 volt shore power to 50 Amp 125/250 Volt plug?

Craig Briggs

Then again, we were just in a New York marina that ONLY had 110v 60hz 50Amp. It was single phase 110v, not 110v/225v. They do exist.  That required yet a different plug which is the 50A SINGLE "J" 110v.  NOT the much more common double "J" 125v/250v 50A of the adapter you were looking at.  The local chandler carried both plugs.
Go figger!  but none of this is rocket science and you sound like you've got it sorted.

Alex, No, that will not help.

Without knowing what transformer you have and how it was wired...and if that wiring has changed, none of us can give you much input.

I suggest that before you arrive at a marina that only has 110VAC available, that you consult with an electrician and have him inspect what you have.

BTW, I was never in a marina that had only 110VAC 60htz available...they all had 110VAC and 220VAC 60 htz.

You have my wiring graphic for wiring to 220VAC 60htz without an onboard transformer. If not it is in this album:

Good morning,

The next marina I am going to is likely to only have 30 Amp 125 Volt.
Since I have never used my big transformer on the boat, I am not sure it works, so trying to cover options.

I need 220 volt.
I am very ignorant when it comes to electricity…

Would the following product be ok? product/389365F/pigtail-shore- power-adapter-30a-125v-male- to-50a-125-250v-female.html
Or is there a problem with the phases or something else…

I am not concerned with the Amp, but the voltage…

Thanks in advance!
