Trillium '75 power cable

The 3 pronged power cable that I plug from my trillium to the wall broke a prong. Is there a whole replacement part, or it it as simple as cutting it open and splicing in any generic replacement? Total newbie at all this.

Thanks in advance. Click image for larger version

Yep, you can buy just the plug and re-wire it to your cable. Just make sure to get the correct amp size.

Or, you could eliminate the cord and use an extension cord:
Power inlet dimensions needed

My wife liked this, since it is one less place for bugs to get in.

Does anyone know the correct amp size for a 1975 Trillium 1300? Or know how I can find out?

If you have a converter, it is fused at 10A. If not there should be a breaker somewhere. Probably 15A. # 14 Cabtire will be fine.

Or just put a new end on the cable you have.

That's a 30 amp plug and 10 ga. Cable you have.

Not to be argumentative, but that is not a 30A cable. That is clearly a 90 15A plug. The protrusion for the ground pin is visible. It could be a 20A, but that is doubtful.

Can't tell the gauge of the cable. Cabtire has really thick insulation. But, it would not make sense to use a 10 ga cable on 15A plug. Typically, 14ga for 15A, 12ga for 20A, 10ga for 30A.

A Trillium has no use for 30A. No AC.

You think someone might of done some southern engineering.
And installed a 15 amp plug on a 30 amp cable?
Saved themselves $5 on a adaptor.

My 1975 Trillium has a 15 Amp fuse for the power cord. It is like a light socket screwed into the bench hatch on the door side. The power cord runs to it then the rest of the trailer.
