I believe mine came from Amazon

At least that's what I recall, got a 10 foot 50 amp cable with twist lock on the coach end and 50 amp connector on the other end. My seasonal site on the Ohio River and most places I've camped in KY and TN I get close enough to the pedestal that I don't have to use the 35' that came with my coach.

While 10' is a real handy length I also eliminate a small voltage drop by not using the long cable. At my seasonal site every volt counts when it gets hot and the everyone is dragging the power down.

For the cost of a 10 foot extention I would sell my portable surge protector and buy a hardwired unit and save the trouble.

Not a wise decision to lock an electrical box in case of an emergency.

In a "emergency situation" you can still unplug the trailer from the lower plug.

Locking the box only covers one end, take a better look, note how low the trailer plug is?

Regardless, not a good idea to lock any electrical box.
