50amp a/c service

My boat has 50amp120 volt a/c shore power. Most marinas have 50amp250volt service. Is there a conversion plug available by Hubell or Marinco.

You can''t run a 120V system on 250V regardless of the adapter. If you look closely I think you might find these are 50 amp 120V plugins and you can buy an adapter for that.

L5 is the proper plug to use at most marinas. While these look like high voltage plugs, i.e.: rounded, twist-lock type, there actually 120v outlets with the higher amperage available. Check with the dock master. He should be able to assist you. If he can''t, switch to another marina... Quick!
