No adapters needed, Joel. The Marinco equipped rigs have standard 20, 30, or 50 amp plugs on the other end of the cord that fit standard residential or RV outlets.

I was thinking about a rig like mine that doesn't have a Marinco fitting; if the pedestal had a Marino twist-lock fitting I would need an adapter for my regular RV cord wouldn't I?

The pedestal doesn't have the Marinco fitting, the truck/TT/5'ver/boat end has it. The pedestal end of the cord has the appropriate standard plug for the service current needed.

Hi Dave,

Did the ones you saw have the shorepowerconnect label on them? Or were they from someone else? I did find a page that says the company offers a level 1 charging connection on their pedestals--but it doesn't specify the plug type, other than to say it is 20 amps @ 120 volts.
They looked just like the pedestals I cited earlier: Truck Stop Hookups

The pedestals from Shorepower apparently come in a variety of configurations. Page two of This PDF file says that the Shorepower Technologies Truck Stop Electrification (TSE) pedestals are

Available in 2-user and 4-user configurations
• Each user gets one or two standard 120 volt, 20
amp outlets (NEMA 5-20R)
• Two users get a 30 or 50 amp 208-240 volt outlet
(NEMA 14-30R or 14-50R) - Not NEC compliant
for EV charging

A standard RV 50 amp plug is a NEMA 14-50R.
