Remember that you may not be able to run everything. Air conditioner may trip shore power supply breaker.
Hope it works out for you! Thanks for the update!

go to an electrical supply house Skip google and go to a sticks and bricks electrical supply house. If you can take the cord, or a couple inches of it, with you.


Called an actual electrical supply house and aHa! Leviton 5266-C can support 10 AWG and it’s about $10.

Problem solved.
Interesting that the Leviton and Hubbell have the same part number.

For some reason, wiring device part numbers are frequently the same or similar among different manufacturers.

Sorry, SlowBro is slow. You said electrical supply house, I heard hardware store.

Just bought a couple 15A replacement plugs at Homie Depot and used them on 10ga cord.
Not a problem.

Could be numbered in accordance with an agreed upon standard or they are all purchasing them from the same source and reselling them.
