I plug in my 50 amp 8" power cord to the 5er.....then adapters to get down to a 15 amp plug.....Then I plug it into a heavy duty 15 amp extension cord.....You are limited to what you can turn on...ONLY the essentials!!!!! Beats fighting with a 30 or 50 amp cable....I ditched my 50 amp reel......Not practical and I needed the room!!!!

Not me I like that cord reel. I just moved it close to the side, works for me. I keep everything in plastic boxes, the sewer hose and the slinky goes in one box. The two water hoses in another box

Have any of you run across a cable, 25', that remains flexible when it gets cold...not real cold, but maybe down to the 30's ?
I've found lots of cables, but none of the descriptions go into if they remain flexible.
What I think determines the flexibility in a cord is the wires the smaller the wires the more flexible it becomes. Electric welder cables remain flexible no matter what the temperature is.

Look for 10/3 SOOW cord. It stays flexible down to -40.

Home Depot has 25' of it for less than $50.00. Add your connectors and you have a reasonably priced cord.
