Just a typical 60amp RV power outlet:

Used many similar ones for dock side boat use.

Na. Its not a pedestal. Its like a duplex that you install in a box where the top is 240/120 and the bottom is 120. I think I remember getting at our local ACE hardware. I'll find out and if so let you know.

You mean just a receptacle?

The 50amp part is throwing me off.

Many RV receptacles are 30amp 125v.

Like I said it was a long time ago. I'm not sure I have it clear in my head but I will track it down and share. Thanks. Mike.

Are you looking for 14-50R and tt-30r in a duplex ?

Never seen one ... why not just use 2 weatherproof boxes with a nipple between them ?

Me neither. I highly doubt it even exists. Think of how big it would have to be.

I bet it was a dual box with two separate receptacles.

I have seen combination receptacles like posted above, but in the 15 and 20 amp versions. Never laid eyes on a duplex 50/30 amp. It would have to fit in a 3 or 4 gang box...

I've seen this set up -- but with the 20A replaced by a 30A classic RV receptacle -- and the single pole breaker set to 30A 120VAC.

As you can see, it's a NEMA3R set up.

Never mind how big this 50/30A duplex beast would be, how is it wired? Does it have two separate feeds like 3c #8 for the 120/240 50A and a 2c #10 for the 120 30A? Only way I could see it working and have the overcurrent protection be compliant.

That was my first response based on the OP, he said it isn't a pedestal.

I put this thing at the local zoo a long time ago. My memory very well could be on the outs and yes the size don't jive for my original explanation. When I get around to it I will go to the zoo and see if I even know what I'm talking about. Mike.
