Has anyone ever needed 50-75 feet of power cord? I can't imagine why I'd be that far from a plug. Just wondering.

There are 4 conductors, You can see the 4th conductor if you zoom in on the end that connects to your camper (end with handle). In the photo it looks like a camera flash reflection however it is a conductor on the outside rim of the plug. The other end is positioned such that the conductor is not visible. Take a look at your campers connection. I think this conductor is the ground.

What's nice is the connections are water resistant so rain isn't a problem.

This site. It takes 100 ft to get to the power. The power Hydrant is off frame about 20 feet to the left.

We have reservations at Turkey Run State park in Indiana in July, and one of the camp sites is advertised as 28 yards to the pedestal. I bought a 50' Connect brand power cord to take along to be safe.

I used my extension a few times, usually to gain about ten freaking feet. But, when you need it.
