I just got a Camping World mailing for their Lucky Shamrock Sale. They have a clearance on a Heavy Duty 50-amp 30' Cord with Handles (Item #57410) for $99.99. A 15' version (Item #57409) is $59.99. Both of these are President's Club member prices, and are only good until March 17.

I don't see a price on shipping, and these are clearance items so they might have limited supplies.

Thanks for all the help everyone. This is my first trailer with 50 amp service. I didn't realize you only really need 50 amps to run 2 ac units. I bought 30' of a Camco 50amp cord for 109 shipped and I have 100' already of 30' so I should be set

I've heard that you can't run an AC and electric waterheater at the same time on 30-amp.

I have the parts inbound for a 50' 50A cord.

Ordered 50' of SOOW 6/4 for $187 on eBay. Really only need 6/3 with a fourth wire of #8, but couldn't find that. Found the Marinco 120/240 50A Female for $24, and a Marinco 50A Male (with pull handle) for $20.

So I'll have $231 in the project for a 50A extension/Power cord.

If I need to use this as an extension, I already have an adapter that I made to convert from Marinco 50A Female to standard RV 50A Female.
