I actually just installed a Leviton plug today with a 14-50r, but the plug can be easily changed by switching the pin for the neutral. The plug end was $20 or so at Home Depot. I am saving the pin in my distro rack for this reason.
  Adapter would be faster, but this is cheap and I rarely run into the 30amp version. Every place hear tends to be 50r or CS.

... using #10 (typical on a 30 amp circuit) with a 14-50 plug isn't permitted, as the 14-50R is presumably protected with a 50 amp breaker, higher than allowed for #10. ...

True, The recommendation from the manual for the ACD-100 when wired to a 240 system is #6/4 AWG.

They also mention that the neutral conductor can be #10, but doesn't have to be.  Most cable has the same wire size for all wires, so in this case they would all be a minimum of #6.
