What on earth (pun intended) is that pin plug supposed to be plugged into? 😲

I think I'd rather see the neutral used than depend on the user to connect it to something.

Same, I'd rather they provide a low impedance path through the full sized neutral than some obscure wire and pin lead.

These sellers in particular make me get angry. Really? When would the ground not be needed?

No UL? Can this even be legal? And where are you going with the green tagline?
I'm sure they're selling a lot of them, because it's on Ebay it's got to be "gooood".

One of many contraptions.

Half of them do have UL labels, just fake. :ROFLMAO:

Most do have 5 stars though:

I think it is designed for folks to plug their RV into an old style dryer receptacle and the green can be plugged into a 120v NEMA 5-15 for those interested in "safety" :)
