It would be a nice option but as seen in the picture I attached of my 2014 390BH's power compartment, I don't think it would be an easy install!!!Click image for larger version

Mounting Power cord reel

why not mount it to the ceiling of the rear battery compartment, Looks like there would be enough room. Then use the original area to store your extension cords.

I'm all confused.... All my batteries, inverter, charger , etc. are on the curb side of my 08 Berk.... My plug-in for land power is on drivers side in compartment with transfer switch and surge protector.... I have tons of space in that compartment for a reel...

The earlier pic I posted of the drivers side bays, the middle one under the inverter/charger is the power cord. It is hard wired into the coach and there is a hole in the bottom of the bay that you pull the cord through. Then you have to pull it back through the other way and wrap it up in that tight area under the inverter once you're done using it. Pain to wrap it when it's cold out.

If only that we're true. Unfortunately, my 2014 is set up exactly the same as the picture of JTN8's. There is very little space. Since we're 2 females traveling alone and I don't think I will ask my 80 year old mom to drag that darn heavy cord around, it sounds like my best option might very well be that flexible cord from Glendenning.

Not sure why they changed the battery compartment. Mine is double stack with the chassis battery over the coach. Still not room for a reel but less wasted space.
