    Where to get a Dummy Receptacle

    Does anyone know where to get dummy receptacles if they even exist? I'm looking for a 120V/30 amp RV and a regular 120V/15 amp just to store an adapter plug in when not in use.

    Make one. That's why 'old work' boxes exist.

    Besides .... after you move, you might get a service call for the non-functioning receptacle

    LOL This isn't being installed in a structure. It'll be in a 2x4 box travelling on a vehicle

    If you don't wire it up to anything isn't that "dummy enough"?

    Dummies are never cheaper. They always seen to end up costing more.

    yep. when i found out that a panel blank off at home depot was fifty cents more than a 1p 15a breaker.....

    and if pennies had holes, washers wouldn't cost three cents each.
