Anyone know where I can get a protective cap/cover for the shore power cord's plug blades? The cord is hard-wired in the RV and, if possible, I'd like to give the blades some protection getting dragged on the ground.

Use one of your wife's socks!

Not to be overly smart-a$$ sounding, but why not simply carry the plug back near the trailer after unplugging it. That way it doesn't get drug over the ground. Just a thought.

I agree with Howard and Peggy, but if you really want a "protective cover", buy a replacement female extension cord end. The type with a handle would probably be the easiest to use.

I never drag my plug end. I always carry it to the TT and then push the cord back in.
