Electric Cord Reel

Has anyone with a newer Berk (with the tiny bay space for the electric hookup and inverter) ever reconfigured that bay to allow for a cord reel?

It's been discussed at great length. A few have been able to do that mod depending on how you are configured. On my 2011 390 RB it would require way more fabrication than I'm willing or able to do. DP a search there is good info hiding.

This is something I would really love in my coach. It would really make things a lot easier!

I purchased one from Mor-Ryde/ Very happy with it. My unit is 50amp, it reels in very easy. I have the manual one, I think it also comes 12V. Unit is approx. 13 inches high, 5 inches wide
Go to MorRyde site/click on other products. It's good for 50' of 50 amp

Was this installed in a Berkshire? If so where did you put it.

Phil/Kenny,
I don't think that Brookstone has a Berkshire. Looks like from his picture he has a 5th wheel so the install won't apply to us.

We are very restricted in that compartment with the transfer switch and in my case a Progressive EMS.
