That's a good point. For the most part, I use 50amp solely for the ability to run to air conditioners. In cold weather, running just 30amps should be fine.

Have the camco 30', takes 3 to reach the power post in the paddock of my local race track. If its under 32f I roll them around the outside of a 5 gallon bucket without issue, get a good roll each time and have reusable ties I use to lasso two sides of the coil to keep it happy.

Otherwise, in warmer weather I use figure 8s and fold in half and still get a decent roll out of it.

Use the 5 gal bucket. It holds the adapters and surge protector too.

The 1st time wasn't the easiest. I put the trailer connection in first. It's made of wire. Just like when we use 1" winch line on dozer it takes several times of spooling in and out to "train" the cable. A new line works the operator more to keep the wraps even and tight.

Now power line can be in the less than two minutes probably.
