    Walley1 and Sberry,
    thanks for the info guys, and I think I'll do what you say, but I'll have one pigtail 2or 3' and maybe one 15' and one 50' as my need arises...
    THANKS GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bert,

    My 110 to 220 pig tail is rather short, approx 2 feet, i used a 12ga SO cord with 3 conductors, on the 110 end i put the black wire to the gold conector, white/nutral wire to the silver conector and ground to ground, on the other end white to one lug black to one lug and ground to ground... and it works just fine, the machine can see your hot leg, it knows what to do, as for a extension a 10ga "extension" cord would be good... hope this helps

    Depends on a couple of factors but with a Dyn you could run a hundred feet without much issue depending on load and incoming service quality.

    sberry, 10 sounds good, how long could you run it for?

    You could use as small as 12 but I prefer 10 just for improved connections.

    thanks Walley1,

    my main concern, thinking if I did it that way, was when I wired my 220v 50A plug like you did, I was told not to be concerned as to which wire went where, as they are both used as hot. But now that it is going to be fed into a 110v, I would think it would matter now, now that it IS important to which is hot or neutral going into the 110v plug.
    Also, what size wire and how long did you use for the pigtail?
    thanks,bert

    I have a dynasty 200dx, wired the main cord for 220 1phase with a 50 amp plug, i dont remember the plug # but will look tomorrow, then made a pig tail with that same plug but the female end and on the male end used a regular 20amp 120v plug, just get a couple of the 50amp female plugs and put whatever you need on the other, these are awsome welders! i have even welded alum with it using my Honda ei2000 inverter generator!! but as soon as i get done with the trailer i started tonight for my new trailblazer302 i will run off that, i hope this helps

    found a few from 2004 man i been here for a wile now.

    the passport or DVI cords are good options if you don't intend to use anything but 120/240V power.
    i'll keep looking for better links for ya. its a simple thing to make up a pig tail from standard hardware stuff and a lil bit cheaper then the DVI/Passport option but not a nice looking.

    Thanks James! I thought I saw one with pictures a couple months ago, but that would have been this forum, but I couldn't find that on either!

    james, I did a lot of searches using keywords: Dynasty 200DX, 110, 220, pigtail, on both this and motorsports side. No luck. Any other hints? Also tried Fat-Fab posts and still nothing...

    you will probably find a lot about it with a search for 110 V or 120V. there have been several posts about the 120V side of it. it puts out a lot more on 120V then one would expect from the looks of the book.
    150amps is no way the max on 120V.
    there is also a lot of info about the pig tails there too. several options as well as plug part #'s. pig tail might also be a good search option.
    good luck.

    Hay Bert

    I put a Passport cord on my Dynasty.

    If you go search the Mororsports side for will find a thread started by me about just this.

    I use mine all the time on 110 I take it into deep buildings. saves having to drag leads all the way from the truck. I grab the Dynasty two short leads can of rod a grinder off I go.

    I have done the same thing welding Aluminum hand rail added a cart to the whole mess and brought along a 80 cf argon and welded 3/16" aluminum off 110
