Default Connecting 2 shore power cords together

I have 2 cables to connect my camper to shore power, does anyone know of a way, or, off the shelf fitting that could connect the 2- 25 ft. cords together so I can reach the 30W plug I had installed in my garage.

I have 2 RV power cords and at home, need a way to connect the 2 and go from my Garaged RV to 30 amp plug about 40 ft. away,

I decided to just cut odd 1 twist lock and replace with 3 blade for RV connected cord and they should fit together nicely

You probably already know this, but make sure that any cord you use can handle the amperage. That's especially true over a longer distance.

Make sure you don't inadvertently reverse polarity. Use your surge protector to verify.

I know this is not exactly what you're asking but this is what I did. I bought both ends of the plugs I needed (RV male end and female end) at Amazon. Then went to Home Depot and bought the heavy gauge cord (off those reels) in the length I needed. I installed the RV male & female plugs and was ready to go. You may be able to find an extension cord that's heavy enough gauge for the job and just cut the plugs off and put the RV ones on. Problem with that is, the super heavy duty contractor extension cords are expensive, it was cheaper for me to piece together

I used my old RV Shore power cord that came with our FF and both ends were compromised and needed ends anyway. I did get the Amazon ends and followed the polarity directions and now have a 24 ft. "Drop cord" 30 amp that with the 25 ft. new RV power cord, will reach our newly installed 30 amp garage connection to full power it in its nest. We go out every day or two for a brief getaway from the house, the news, cats and usual distractions and have ourselves a glass or two of win and play a few hands of cards. Thanks for all the tips

I have a "pad" in my yard where I park my camper when it's not in storage. I run an extension cord from the garage and use an adaptor similar to this:

Epicord 15 Amp Male to 30 Amp Female Dogbone Adapter RV Electrical Converter Cord Cable (15A Male - 30A Female) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07T66XTZQ..._CLKFFbFK81T3J

I don't use it to run the air conditioner, the microwave or any other high draw items while it's parked in the yard. Basically, it keeps the battery charged and allows me to use the 12V lights while it's parked on the pad.
If I was totally serious about it, I would have a 30 amp "peg" installed in the "pine clump" next to the pad and run a buried cable from the panel in the workshop that's beneath the garage. Maybe next year. In two weeks (or less) my FF will be in the storage barn ��.
