Cable

Since water electric and cable are typically in the same spot I made my cable as long as my electrical cord since if my electric cord does not reach cable is the least of my worry.

I carry 50' & rarely need more than 25'... The thing you may appreciate even more is a set of push on rather than screw on connectors...saves a bunch of time and skinned knuckles as you can connect in less than a second.


We often get asked about ours as apparently many people are not aware these exist.

We have up to 100', but have it in 25' sections.
We camped at Ocean Lakes in Myrtle Beach a couple weeks ago and were quite surprised to see they supply cable at each pedestal. Its wound up and there at everyone. Pretty cool.

50 Feet

I just use a 50ft cable. It has less signal loss than using 2 cables with a connector.

On occasion, we got extra lengths of cable to use from the campground at not extra cost. Most campground stores should have them for sale also (huge markup, of course). We were even supplied with extra 30 AMP power cord from a campground in So. Illinois (Little Grassy).

I carry a 25' extension and I have my surge protector plugged between my ext and house cord and feed the ext. out and the surge protector stays in the basement. Haven't needed more than 25' yet.

We've been to a couple of parks that have weird cable setups...not on the pedestal and maybe closer to the next campsite over. But even then, 2 25' cables with a connector have been sufficient.

Even though Most CHU are at the Pedestal location they seem to be the Most damaged! Threads/weed wacker/Drive Offs without unhooking! The 100' cable and Push On ends covers lots of issues! Youroo!!

Every one I've used, so far, 10' would have been more than enough. But on both of the tt's I've owned the cable connection was on the drivers side about center.
