I carry the 25 Ft 30 amp trailer cord, a 25 ft 30 amp extension and a 50 ft 30 amp extension. I often use all of that at Ontario Provincial Parks to get power. There are many sites that have 50 amp now but seldom do I see 100 ft of 50 amp cable out.

My source is Princess Auto, they are less expensive than RV Dealers and better Quality than Walmart.

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

This is what I did.

It allows me to NEVER pickup that freeking 50 amp cord. I just pull it out, hook it up. Then disconnect, hook the trailer end on the reel and press the button, woosh all done.

The description states 50 amp, but I only see 3 lugs ?
Edit - disregard ; I see it is the 3 lug 50 amp pigtail set.
