50 amp outlets come in several different arraingments.. But this is a 4 wire 50 amp 240 volt with neutral and ground.
I know lots of folks who keep hammering false information,, Information that can in fact cause a fire.. But the above line is accurate.
It is also important that the NEUTRAL wire be the same size as the hot wires.
You may now stop reading, In fact to avoid confusion you likely should.
So if I have a 220 volt outlet for a welder, I could use this as a 50amp RV outlet?
