Where can I buy a 10' 50 amp cable?

I am looking for a 10' 50 amp cable with the twist lock female on the end. Anyone know where I can find one that short.

TIA

Regular 50 amp plug. I guess I should have elaborated more in my initial post. What I am thinking about doing is running a regular 50 amp cable from a campground pedestal up through opening in the bottom of my basement (place where the water hose comes in) then, into a portable 50 amp surge protector and then, from the 50 amp SP back out the hole and to the power hookup on the 5ver. I figure this will accomplish two things protect the SP from the weather and protect it from some scum that may want to steal it.

The SP is water proof and put a lock on the pedestal lid to keep it closed will keep the SP from being pulled out of the plug in.

Three links plus a second lock go around the cable.

In this shot the box was too small for the lid to close so I just wrapped the chain around the water line.
