Re: Hooking 110 power cord to shore power?

You can buy adapters for such, or make one yourself. I would install some sort of circuit protection as far "upstream" as possible, as the shore power probably has a 30A breaker and standard 110V wiring/cords/whatnot is usually rated at 10A or 15A (rarely 20A).
