I bought it at Canadian Tire. You should be able to buy at WalMart for much cheaper.

Agreed on how heavy it was.

So since we are on the subject...anyone have creative/interesting/helpful ways to organize and store their cord? Especially the 50 amp cord.

Amazon.com: Camco 55195 50 AMP 30' Extension Cord with PowerGrip Handle: Automotive

this one comes with a nice carry strap, since it weighs 24lbs. Not bad price either. Being an Amazon Prime member is awesome. Free shipping. They have ALL the stuff we want or need.

Not to hijack the thread but, can you buy a real 50 amp cord instead of the Chinese ultra stiffys.

I also bought my 50 amp 30' extension cord from Amazon. You may also want to by a 50 amp to 30 amp dog bone or adapter for the parks that don't offer 50 amp service yet. We go to a few State and private campgrounds that only offer 30 amp service and the electrical hook up is farther away where you will need the extension. I have used my extension alot.

I have only used the extension cord once. I positioned the unit and needed 5 more feet. The 90deg 18" adapter I use always because I like how the cord hangs straight down from the camper, I think it places less stress on the connector.
