Sometime ago I found a Y-cable that has 2 male plugs to connect into a 20 amp 110v and a 30 amp 110v providing a standard 220 50amp receptacle at the female end. Does anyone know where to find this Y cable or how to wire one from components at **********?

Just because something works, or can be made to work, doesn't mean it is safe.

I'd be willing to bet that these cords ( I have heard of them before) are not listed by any testing agency. That fact should tell you all you need to know.

Though this cord may have a 50 amp receptacle on the end, 50 amps is not available for use. Also, 30 amp 120 volt receptacles aren't real common either.

Yes, I do know how to make one & no, I won't tell you.

I am in an RV park, I have a 50 amp, 30 amp and 20 amp outlet available. The cable running into the RV is 50 amp (about an inch in diameter), RV's use standard 110 because many parks don't have the 50 amp supply available. A 220v dryer works much more efficiently. Using the appropriate cable, why would it be that risky?
