shore power cord
by jaybird2719 04-08-2011

I need to purchase a new shore power cord for my boat. I have a Marinco terminal on the boat, I would like to order from the sailnet store, but they don't carry Marinco Cords. I have been told that a Hubbell and marinco are interchangeable. Can anyone confirm this one way or another?

Thanks a bunch

The connectors are standard. A small LED on the Hubble plug will let you know when the cable is energized. Connections between shore side posts and the yacht should be made before the power is turned on.

do you need entire cord or just a plug?? is easy to replace the plug--i am electrically and hand challenged and i can do this job, saves money and is easy.
adapters are great but make sure usage does not exceed the rating of cord..... marinco and hubbell are same--shore power all is same so has to be-- there is 30 amp, 20 amp-- different ends, and 50 amp--hugely different end--i try to have one of each end or an adapter for each 20 and 30 amps. those places i found in fla lent us an adapter for 50 amp to 30....but may be a good idea to keep one of those 50 to 30 adapters or a pigtail on board. very handy to have.
