We have a 25' 30 amp cord for our 30 amp hookup and use it at least 3-5 times per year. At one of our campgrounds that we frequent each year for the 4th of July (my wife and I first met there while we were in high school on the 4th of July) we tried a different site and needed at least 65' of total cord to get to the power box. Won't be using that site again.

In summary, get the 50 amp cord or you may wish you had. Campgrounds will charge premium $$ to purchase one from them.

Insulted no! But the question wasn't about money. The question was do I have a need to carry around another item that may never be used. As we all find out as we travel we try and limit our unneeded extra items so as to not exceed our space and weight limits. The weight of a 25' extension cord carried for no reason means I can carry 3 or 4 bottles less of Scotch.

Hello peskin and thanks for not taking my reply the wrong way. Like the subsequent responses, I also agree on preparation being a key to happy camping, and there are a couple of areas (primarily things that would make the DW unhappy!) that I try to cover: those are electricity and water. We usually tend to start our camping trips late afternoons so camp setup is often done after hours, so being sure that I'm ready to handle whatever the campground throws at me is REALLY important. Most other issues can wait until the morning. AND when it comes to electricity NO shortcuts are allowed (you know what I mean).

Happy camping! Oh, one more thing, where do you keep the Scotch?
