30 amp or 50 amp?

My 2014 Redwood 5th wheel shore power plug-in and power cord has 3 prongs but the placard right next to it says itís 50amp. Also, inside the coach receptacle says 50amp. And the spec sheet says I have 50amp electric. Do I have 30amps or 50 amps?

This is definitely 50 amp. Notice the ground in the lower left corner on the outside edge of the shore cord inlet. If you open your distribution panel you should see the double 50 amp main breakers in the center. You have 50 amps for loads to the left of the breakers and 50 amps for loads to the right of the breakers. This is a distribution panel because it distributes both the 115v ac power and the 12v dc loads in your redwood. There is a separate converter behind this that supplies the 12v to the batteries and the 12 volt circuits in your coach.

That's a 50 amp Twist Lock connector. Insert the plug and twist to lock in place.
On mine I added the threaded lock collar to fully ensure it remained seated.

Thanks for clearing that up. Guess this 3-prong outlet with a 4th ground on the side is unusual cuz I’ve only seen the standard 4-prong 50 amp outlet.
