    I purchased both a new shore power cord and "Y" adapter. I was a bit skeptical with the new EEL connectors, but after messing with them for a few days they appear to be a solid new direction. My cords and adapter are all 125v/30amp.

    At first the female boat end of the power cord would not lock in a weather resistant manner to the male end of the "Y" adapter. I put a call into Marinco and determined they have some branding issues with the required components. Here is what you need and then it works like a charm - cord to cord or cord to adapter etc.

    You need two additional parts:
    Marinco Sealing Collar with Ring 30A PN #110R (WM #154922)
    Marinco Sealing Ring - 50A PN #500R (WM #209215)

    IGNORE THE POWER RATINGS ON THESE TWO PARTS, they are not marked or branded properly, they fit fine.

    Do not use the ring in the #110R kit, instead, place the 50A #500R ring over the male end of the "Y" adapter, then screw the double male sleeve into the 50A #500R ring you just put on. The female EEL end of the power cord will join together and lock in place as expected. You can also use this to connect two cords together etc.

    Marinco said they are working on new packaging / branding to fix the confusion.

    The cords work great and should keep a nice solid connection, they do not "appear" to be "gimmicky" at all.

    This is a good news / bad news situation, the good news being the excellent knowledge and service provided by West Marine's store in solving some of the below problems with this confusingly marketed power cord.

    Several issues:

    (1) The sealing rings and joint are not included in the cord package, so it is easy to buy a cord that cannot be connected to another cord (like a 50 / 30 amp pigtail). Problem is the 30 amp rings that one would buy won't fit over the 30 amp cord's plugs anyway (nor will the ones from your old power cord). However, the 50 amp rings that are a little bigger inside diameter will fit on the 30 amp plugs.

    (2) The 50' (labeled) cord that I bought turned out to be about 47' long (that makes a difference in a 40' slip; it was too short).

    (3) I also did not like the bright LED indicator lights installed in the plugs (makes the boat look like a Christmas tree). Lights are a good idea, but not LEDs.

    The solution: Marinco is building the old style 30 amp cords (in correct length) again, but they still require the 50 amp rings. They look to be the good quality typically provided by Marinco.

      Comments about EEL Shore Power 30 Amp Cordsets:

      One Shore Power Cord provides a solid connection from my electrical box on my dock to my Sea Ray with secure connections at both ends which simplifies powering up your boat. With adapatable connections available other power needs such as recharging the electric motor on the dingy can be accomplished without having to haul the battery down a long dock. The Shore Power Cord is well built, durable and will withstand storms and other weather during the boating season.

            Have been using this cord for the last year and it has served its purpose nicely. I like the LED power on indicator very much. The new locking clamp works and is quick but if not seated correctly it does not lock. I just wish Marinco could figure out how to protect the yellow cord cover from UV damage better.

                        I had read about this product in several publications by writers I trust like Ed Sherman and Steve D'Antonio. Bought it for my boat and found out what all the hoopla was about. So much easier to use and finally no sealing ring. I also tried to attach two cords to extend my length and had read the other reviews. So I called Marinco, they walked me through it, bought the right size collar and ring to do it and presto - it was a breeze.

                        I use this cord to connect 30 amp shore power service to my 33 foot sailboat. Marinco produces a very safe product and the new connectors are easier to fasten than the old ones. I particularly like the blue indicator light that tells you that the unit is live. This cord is an excellent solution for safe use of 30 amp service on your watercraft and an outstanding upgrade from the traditional product.
