One of the campgrounds I visit has a site with low hanging tree branches at the rear so I canít back into the site as far back as I want. My power cord which is 25 feet long connects to the trailer at the middle and the siteís power pole is at the rear so I end up using my 15 foot 50 amp extension cord. I rarely need the extension but it comes in handy when I do.
Since you have a 30 amp trailer you should be able to find a 25 foot 30 amp extension cord for around 30 bucks to 40 bucks.
Ok, that makes sense. Trying to learn all this stuff at once is like information overload! We already had to get a math degree to figure out if we could tow the RV with our existing truck!
We didn't plan on buying until January which gave us tons of time to learn....but we got carried away on Saturday so we need to learn quick.
